Presented by Rochelle Calhoun '83, Executive Director, Alumnae Association
The Alumnae Quarterly essay contest is open to MHC alumnae, students, faculty, and staff. Entrants in last year's contest were asked to write about a pivotal educational experience, and Mollye Maxner won first prize with her poignant piece about how a decision her father made as a soldier in Vietnam had moving consequences decades later. Maxner's essay, "Tiny Actions," will be published in the spring issue of the Alumnae Quarterly.
