Class of 1972 Women’s Group Meets in Manhattan

July 12, 2016 in Events, Notes

Carol Whitehead (ES)reports: “A group of women classmates from the tri-state area meet a few times a year in Manhattan for lunch and to catch up. 21 of us recently met at my apartment, including a new participant, Jerylie Kemp (MC). Our group has been meeting for many years, with Connie Royster (JE) organizing our get together. We started a scholarship fund many years ago and many continue to contribute to it. The Yale Class of ’72 Women’s Scholarship Fund has provided support to women transfer students like us. The recipients, who typically receive these funds for at least two years, have gone on to successful careers in law, design, and public health, among others. This year’s recipient, Rona Ji, is the principal piccolo/First Flute in the Yale Band, and participates in the Yale China Economic Forum, New Haven Reads, Yale Undergraduate Consulting Group, and Yale Building Bridges, which brings Yalies to China to teach English on volunteer missions. Rona is studying Economics and Ethnicity, Race & Migration, and has published several papers with a focus on China. Rona transferred from the University of Pennsylvania and is from Seattle.”
