Alumnae/i Weekend 2014, June 20-22
Come and mingle among Western friends – old and new – as we discover together "The Soul of Western" in air-conditioned Peabody Hall.

Celebrate the WCAA's 40th Anniversary and commemorate Freedom Summer 1964 ... arrive early on Friday and meet classmates at the welcome center, visit the archives, participate in a Freedom Summer Walking Tour. At the invitation of Miami's President and Mrs. Hodge, members of the Western, Oxford, and Miami communities will come together in Kumler Chapel at 3:00 p.m. for a commemoration program, followed by a reception on Alumnae Hall green.
 
After the traditional Saturday morning parade of classes, annual meeting, and Meily Society luncheon, engage in an alumnae panel discussing their journeys from Western and experiences with civil rights and social justice. 

On Sunday, join Dr. Carolyn Jefferson-Jenkins '74, former president of the National League of Women Voters, as our featured speaker. Dr. Greta Pope Wimp '74, accomplished vocalist and author, will lead the Western Choir.

So many exciting plans! Please join us … it won't be a grand celebration without YOU!
