Meredith Hires First Provost By Melyssa Allen
or the first time in its history, Meredith College has a provost. Matthew Poslusny is the first person to serve as senior vice president and provost. In this role, Poslusny leads the College’s academic and enrollment initiatives. Prior to joining Meredith’s administration, Poslusny served as the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Common Student Experience at Widener University. His previous experience includes several years as chair of the Marist College chemistry department and Maier endowed chair of environmental science at the University of Charleston (W.Va.). Poslusny’s work has been published in both higher education and scientific journals. Poslusny, who holds a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from the University of North Texas, brings extensive experience in academic administration and as a faculty member. “I have been in higher education since
1990, the first ten years or so as a full-time faculty member,” said Poslusny. “I think that experience is important because I understand the demands placed on a full-time faculty member.” One of Poslusny’s initial goals is to get to know the Meredith community and its culture. “In order to be successful it all starts with building relationships. It will be important for me to get to know faculty, staff and students, and for them to get to know me. This also gives me the opportunity to really get to know the culture of Meredith.” Poslusny values the opportunity to work in higher education and to support its impact on students. “We only have students for four years. We need to be able to prepare them for not only their first job right out of college but for what happens ten years after, twenty years after . . . it’s great to be part of that,” Poslusny said.
Meredith Advances to #2 in U.S. News Rankings By Melyssa Allen
eredith College advanced to number two on the 2014 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s list of the South’s Best Regional Colleges. The latest rankings were released on September 10. Meredith was also named to the Best Value list, ranked 6th among regional colleges in the South. U.S. News describes this ranking as “taking into account a school’s academic quality, and the 201213 cost of attendance for students who receive the average level of need-based financial aid.” The publishers consider quality as well as cost, noting “the higher the quality of the program and the lower the cost, the better the deal.” The U.S. News ranking system places colleges and universities in one of four categories: national universities, national liberal arts colleges, regional universities and re-

gional colleges. Schools are ranked using several indicators including peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources (class size, faculty/student ratio, percentage of full-time faculty), student selectivity (average SAT scores, acceptance rate) and alumni giving percentage.
• Meredith’s financial health was noted in the U.S. Education Department’s annual report on the financial responsibility of colleges and universities. Meredith earned the highest rating given by the organization. • The College made The Princeton Review’s “Best in the Southeast” list for 2014. Colleges chosen for the “regional best” list constitute only 25% of the nation’s fouryear colleges. Selection is based primarily on excellent academic programs. • Forbes.com included Meredith among the top 20% of colleges in the U.S. The publication considers factors including student satisfaction, post-graduate success and graduation rate.

Meredith Ensemble Theatre Rises to the Challenge of Chekhov Meredith Ensemble Theatre presented Anton Chekhov’s “The Three Sisters” in September. This was the first time Meredith has performed a classic play by the Russian playwright. The production featured (front to back) Meredith theatre majors Kat Myers, ’16, Elaina Mittleman, ’16, and Rimsha Afzal, ’15.
Faculty Spotlight – Sherry Shapiro
eredith’s 2013 Faculty Distinguished Lecturer was Professor of Dance Sherry Shapiro. Her presentation, “The Hair Project: Negotiating the Politics of the Body,” featured dance and a discussion of the identity politics of hair. “Hair styles can tell us about our world and ourselves,” Shapiro said. “It has served both to oppress and to liberate us.” Shapiro’s lecture was inspired by her time as a Fulbright Scholar in South Africa. She gave the audience a glimpse of her Fulbright research project, which focused on dance education in the new South African curriculum. She examined the implications for dance education in the process of democratic transformation. As part of her Fulbright experience, Shapiro completed a community dance project in Cape Town, South Africa, using a process she developed at Meredith. Shapiro uses “dance as a vehicle for increasing both self and social understanding among students.” The choreographic work was a process for increasing personal reflection, written narrative, movement and cultural analysis.

FROM THE PRESIDENT
What Makes Us Strong
y now, you have most likely seen Meredith’s new brand and brand video, Meredith College | Going Strong. The emphasis on strength — in the development of our students and in the state of the College — captures our history while projecting our future. Current students, alumnae, and those who have hired our alumnae consistently cite strength as a distinguishing quality that most authentically characterizes Meredith and her graduates. “Courage,” “confidence,” and “clear thinking” are certainly a few of the key descriptors of our current and former students. So, too, are “engaged,” “passionate,” and “well-prepared” for work and life beyond the academy. Throughout the process of developing this brand, we have been careful to include research and data of our actual students, alumnae, families, employers, and community partners who have graciously provided their perceptions about Meredith students and the Meredith experience. You will be hearing more highlights of that research in publications and events to come, but for now just a couple of statistics stand out: • 99% of Meredith alumnae agree that there are important benefits to attending a women’s college • 97% would recommend Meredith to prospective students • 93% would still attend Meredith if they could start college again • 97% are satisfied with their academic experience • 95% say Meredith prepared them to earn an additional degree or certification • 91% say they were professionally well prepared as a Meredith graduate These statistics are clear evidence that Meredith does, indeed, graduate strong individuals, ready for whatever life may offer.
“Current students, alumnae, and those who have hired our alumnae consistently cite strength as a distinguishing quality that most authentically characterizes Meredith and her graduates.”
What will make Meredith even stronger? Our new strategic plan identifies six key elements for enhancing our strength: educational excellence, optimal enrollment, financial strength, IT/infrastructure enhancements, increased visibility, and enhanced quality of life. The new brand is a prime example of our commitment to enhancing our visibility. Our enrollment is strong. We are strong financially, as indicated by receiving the U.S. Dept. of Education’s top financial rating, and our educational quality remains high with new offerings in the works. Renovations and upgrades on campus — from Belk Dining Hall to Jones/Wainwright to our IT network — are strengthening the College. And our focus on quality of life is making a difference in employee salaries and benefits, as well as general health and well-being for all. As for me? What makes me strong? You do. Your support, eagerness to help Meredith thrive, pride in your alma mater, and love for this College remind me every single day what a joy it is to be living among “the angels,” do-
ing work that truly matters, and going strong. My gratitude could not be more heartfelt. I hope that you, too, are going strong and wish you all the best in the coming new year.
P.S. How did Meredith make you stronger? I invite you to take a moment to share your strong story at meredith.edu/goingstrong.

Notables on Campus Jody Williams Nobel Laureate Jody Williams, whose work with the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) resulted in an international treaty, presented the 2013 Lillian Parker Wallace Lecture at Meredith on April 2, sharing her story as a grassroots activist who received the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize. Williams, who said she is inspired by “people no one knows, who get up every day in the most dire circumstances and work to make peace,” told the audience to use their lives to make a difference. “Don’t be afraid to think outside the system. Think, say things you believe, and don’t be afraid to make people uncomfortable,” Williams said. “Change happens when people are uncomfortable.” Williams is the fifth Nobel Laureate to speak at Meredith College.
Khaled Hosseini Best-selling author Khaled Hosseini visited Meredith College on June 15 to discuss his latest novel, “And the Mountains Echoed.” The event was co-sponsored by Meredith’s Friends of the Library and Quail Ridge Books & Music. “My books never, ever go where I think they are going to go. This book followed that same pattern,” Hosseini said. “I am drawn now to characters who are conflicted … it requires an act of restraint to let it be, and allow people [in the book] to be messy and mysterious.”
Gwendolyn Oxenham Summer Reading Program author and athlete Gwendolyn Oxenham discussed her book, “Finding the Game,” with a Meredith audience on August 28. Oxenham offered freshman students advice about using

their college experience to chase their dreams. “Finding something to care about is important, and college is about helping you do that,” Oxenham said. “Make sure you step out of your comfort zone, and watch out for being too closely tied to the ideas you have for yourself … it’s the loss of one dream that allows you to create a new one.”

Meredith Experts in the News Meredith faculty and staff served as experts in a wide variety of news articles in media outlets such as U.S. News & World Report, QualityHealth.com, The Christian Science Monitor and Mashable.com.
“No one is going to withdraw a job offer if you try to negotiate and ask for something reasonable; they have spent a great deal of time, effort and money recruiting you and have decided you are their choice – use that to your advantage.” — Associate Professor of Business Jane Barnes, in a U.S. News & World Report article about women and salary negotiations.
“Part of our job as parents is to help kids see the consequences of those choices but not necessarily make those choices for them … [your child] needs practice making decisions and living with those decisions while she still has that parental safety net in place.”
“A rush to judgment, infotainment, agenda reporting, and a push to increase the bottom line at the expense of solid reporting, creates the perfect storm for journalism – and democracy. The frustration and aftermath of the George Zimmerman trial are precisely the circumstances in which thoughtful, balanced coverage is most needed.”

Summer Study Abroad
eventy Meredith students studied abroad in locations around the world this summer. Faculty-led programs were held in Belize, Costa Rica, France, the United Kingdom, and at Meredithâ€™s palazzo in Sansepolcro, Italy. Many students experienced learning opportunities beyond their course work and the cultural education provided by these in-
m ere d i th.e d u
ternational classrooms. Eleven students in the Paris fashion program completed internships with designers like Elie Saab, Alexandre Plokhov and Rick Owens. Seven of the internships were paid positions, and all of them provided valuable experience in the field. Students in Belize and Costa Rica did service projects while abroad. Meredith stu-
dents tutored students at The Faith Nazarene School in San Ignacio, Belize, using the MeredithReads literacy curriculum, and completed playground refurbishments using funds raised by the Colton English Club. While in Costa Rica, Meredith study abroad participants painted an outdoor mural for a school.
Newsmakers Assistant Professor of Human Environmental Sciences Nina Bostic and Professor of Human Environmental Sciences Deborah Tippett attended the annual meeting of the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences in Houston, Texas, in June. Tippett gave the luncheon speech for the Global Perspectives Community on “Connecting the Dots: From a Trustee’s Call to Breakfast with Desmond Tutu.” Tippett was elected chair of the Global Perspectives Community for AAFCS. Associate Professor of Mathematics Emily Burkhead taught a two-week course, Symbolic Dynamical Systems, for the George Washington University’s Summer Program for Women in Mathematics this July. This prestigious program, now in its 19th consecutive year, is a five-week intensive program for mathematically talented undergraduate women who are completing their junior year and may be contemplating graduate study in the mathematical sciences. Goals of this program are to communicate an enthusiasm for mathematics, develop research skills, cultivate mathematical self-confidence and independence, and promote success in graduate school. Associate Professor Woody Holliman presented a paper, “Paradigm Lost: Rethinking Graphic Design History,” at the 2013 Southeastern College Art Conference (SECAC) in Greensboro, N.C. Judy Peel, head of the Department of Nutrition, Health and Human Performance, was a co-presenter with NC Central University Assistant Professor Jay Jung, for a seminar on “Balancing Academics and Intercollegiate Athletics” to the Gyeongsangdukdo Sports Council, in South Korea, in June. Professor of Dance Sherry Shapiro’s article “The Act of Making: Dance as Aesthetic Activism,” was published in Choros, the Greek International Dance Journal, this spring. Adjunct Instructor of English Jennifer Tagsold won the Eastern Educational Research Association’s Best Professional Paper Award. Her winning paper focuses on strategies for preventing distraction in a 1:1 learning environment.
Meredith’s Kristy Dixon Named SHRM Advisor of the Year
eredith College faculty member Kristy Dixon was named the 2012-13 Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Advisor of the Year. The national organization presented the award to Dixon at its annual conference. A member of the Meredith College faculty since 2001, Dixon is an assistant professor of business and serves as advisor of the student chapter of SHRM. In addition to her work at Meredith, Dixon is president and HR professional at McLaurin Parking. Under Dixon’s guidance, Meredith’s SHRM chapter has received the Superior Merit Award from the national organization for the past ten years, and has been selected as a top ten student chapter. A Meredith team has also won the Southeast Regional SHRM Case Competition. Dixon herself has been recognized as the Meredith School of Business Teacher of the Year three times. Students who nominated Dixon for the SHRM Advisor of the Year award praised her leadership of the Meredith chapter and her work as a faculty member. In her nomination, Carrie Al-Danab, ’13, said Dixon had “continuously guided her students in obtaining valuable knowledge in the field of human resources and has been the perfect role model and mentor.”
Student Completes White House Internship
mily Hawkins, ’14, spent her summer as an intern in the White House, an experience she calls an honor. “It was the honor of a lifetime to serve as an intern at the White House,” Hawkins said. “It was an unforgettable experience and I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about public service.” Hawkins, who is earning a double major in political science and Spanish, worked in the Presidential Personnel Office (PPO), which oversees the selection process for presidential appointments. The White House internship program interested Hawkins for a variety of reasons. “President Obama was the first president I ever voted for and for that reason I always have felt connected to this Administration,” Hawkins said. “When I found out about the White House Internship Program, I was immediately interested in the chance to serve the public. The historical nature of the White House and prestigious nature of the program were added bonuses.” The White House internship also supports her professional goals. “My passion and desire is to elect more women to office so while my plans after graduation are undecided, they will definitely include bridging the gender gap in politics,” Hawkins said. Hawkins said her Meredith education helped prepare her for the internship and for her future. “My coursework at Meredith has expanded my interest in politics, especially a course I took about practical politics with Adjunct Professor Wendy Kelly and my thesis course on women in politics with Dr. [Clyde] Frazier,” Hawkins said. Hawkins has participated in Meredith’s Student Government Association since being appointed as a freshman, and has been Elections Board Chair for three years. “Electing over 90 women to office every year in college inspires me every day to further that work outside of Meredith.” F all 2013 | M E R E D IT H M A G A Z I N E
Belk Dining Hall Gets Makeover
ne of the central locations on Meredith’s campus has a new look. During the summer, Belk Dining Hall was refurbished to create a more inviting place for students to dine, socialize and study. Along with updated furniture, Belk now has a new ceiling, fresh paint, and improvements to the lighting and the sound system. The ad-
dition of an expanded patio in front of Belk, furnished with tables and seating, is another highlight. “Belk is a central point for all kinds of meetings, recruiting activities and social gatherings,” President Jo Allen said. “We are delighted that a refurbished Belk Dining Hall and the surrounding grounds will provide
me re d i th.e d u
a more attractive place for students to dine, meet friends and family, and enjoy the beauty of this campus.” The Belk Dining Hall refurbishment project was funded by ARAMARK, the company with which Meredith contracts for dining and facilities services. The Meredith Parents’ Council also supported the project.
Meredith Honors Law Enforcement Professionals By Melyssa Allen
eredith College’s criminology program welcomed nearly 50 local professionals to A Salute to Women in Law Enforcement, an event that recognized and thanked those who work in all areas of criminal justice. The April event honored Raleigh Police Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown, and gave special recognition to women officers. DeckBrown, who was sworn in on February 22, 2013, is the first African American woman to serve as chief of the Raleigh Police Department. She is a 25-year veteran of the Raleigh Police Department. “At Meredith we champion women in all roles — traditional and non-traditional,” said President Jo Allen, ’80. “In Chief DeckBrown, our students have a role model.” Allen was pleased to see men and women in law enforcement on campus for the event. “It is heartening to see so many men and women
of law enforcement, and at Meredith College.” She encouraged Meredith students interested in criminal justice to take advantage of this “up close and personal career fair.” Meredith criminology students did just that, networking with the law enforcement professionals in attendance, and learning more about their careers. Many of the departments represented have hired Meredith students as interns in the past. Ann-Michelle Roberts, ’15, presented Deck-Brown with a framed print of Meredith’s Johnson Hall, on behalf of students in the Criminology program. As one of the largest women’s colleges in the U.S., Meredith College is dedicated to supporting women in non-traditional careers, including law enforcement. In 2011, Meredith College became one of the few women’s colleges to offer a Bachelor of Arts degree in criminology.

Representatives from all branches of law enforcement — policing, prosecution and corrections at federal, state and municipal levels — attended the event, including Chief Deck-Brown and Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison.

US STRONG Meredithâ€™s new brand conveys strength, history and a profound sense of pride. By Gaye Hill
me re d i th.e d u
eredith’s new brand, Meredith College | Going Strong, is off to an exceptionally strong start, based on reactions among the Meredith community — particularly from alumnae. And while the response is gratifying, the positive reception is a direct result of the way the new brand was developed: using extensive research and interviews with students, alumnae, faculty, staff and parents. As is the case with any effective branding campaign, Going Strong feels right because it’s grounded in truth. Our alumnae know from their own experiences and connections that Meredith graduates are, indeed, “going strong” — and the new brand provides an ideal opportunity to shout it from the rooftops. As President Jo Allen recently commented, “While I fully anticipated people would like the brand, I am most pleased that the overwhelming majority consistently comment on the authenticity of the message. Clearly, we have not just taken something that sounds and looks spiffy and tried to pawn it off as the Meredith message. This is a statement brand that not only ‘gets us,’ but also proclaims us to the world.” And while members of the Meredith community are rightly excited about Going Strong, their role in supporting and carrying the brand forward cannot be stressed enough. As graduates of Meredith, alumnae have great credibility when they speak about the College. As much as the community has embraced Going Strong, Meredith’s brand isn’t simply a logo or a tagline. It’s a perception that’s shaped with every interaction. Each member of the Meredith community creates the brand every day. And given the power of Meredith alumnae, that bodes well not only for the future of Going Strong, but for the strength of the College itself.

THIS IS WHAT STRONG LOOKS LIKE Those who know Meredith best are already familiar with its impressive history as one of the best colleges in the country. As part of the strategic planning process, a commitment was made to spread that awareness and increase the College’s
visibility and reputation — and the new brand is a critical piece of that effort. As a result, you’ll see and hear Meredith College | Going Strong on billboards and in magazine, broadcast and web ads. In recent months, Going Strong ads

ALUMNAE IN THE
GOVERNOR’S OFFICE Five Meredith alumnae play important roles in N.C. Governor Pat McCrory’s administration. By Betsy Rhame-Minor, ’01

Meredith alumnae Reston Jones,’10; Liz McLean, ’08; Amanda Oliver, ’02; Karen Rosser,’84; and Nicole McGuinness Hines,’08, in North Carolina’s Capitol Building.
eeping a state governor’s office running smoothly takes hard work from hundreds of people. Five Meredith College graduates are playing important roles in North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory’s administration. Though their roles vary, these five often interact to get their jobs done. “Everyone on our end of the hall is a Meredith grad. That just says Meredith turns out quality people,” said Karen Rosser, ’84. “Meredith prepares women, grows women with positive self-esteem [who] aren’t afraid to be challenged. When you leave there you know there’s nothing you can’t do.”
AMANDA OLIVER, ’02 Amanda Oliver, ’02, began working in politics in 2012 at the Republican National Con-
vention, and then for presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign before joining the governor’s staff. In January 2013 she became one of Gov. McCrory’s two schedulers. Now she handles all requests for Gov. McCrory’s time: meetings, photos and all kinds of events, including, she said, “everything from his haircuts to a legislative meeting.” Each day she goes over the Governor’s schedule with him, and plans so far in advance for him that she said, “I get so focused with his schedule that I forget my own.” The work is fast-paced and exciting. “No day is the same,” Oliver explained. “I don’t take it for granted on my walk up to the [Capitol Building] that I work here. Certainly I learn something new every day about the political process.”
Still, Meredith College is never far from her mind. “I can trace back most of my successes. I had each of them on my own but Meredith was the catalyst.” Oliver is committed to sharing Meredith with younger college-bound women, like the pages who work in the governor’s office. “I always take an extra minute with them to see what their college plans are and I hand them an admissions packet,” Oliver said.
LIZ MCLEAN, ’08 Working in government has always been a goal for Liz McLean, ’08. “I’ve known that I wanted to work in politics since I was in third grade,” she said. Once at Meredith, McLean double majored in political science and history, was vice president of her freshman and sophomore F all 2013 | M E R E D IT H M A G A Z I N E
classes, and served as president of the College Republicans club. The leadership experience she gained on campus combined with offcampus internships helped to prepare her for a career in politics. “I recognize that Meredith does a special thing … by teaching women to grow as leaders,” McLean said. “[Meredith] gave me a better perspective and taught me how to work with…other strong women. It taught me how to be gracious, poised and eloquent in stating my beliefs and opinions.” Though she considered making the move to Washington, D.C., after graduation, she ultimately decided to stay in Raleigh. “[My career choice] kept me in North Carolina and engaged here,” she explained. “I can’t imagine being anywhere else.” Today McLean coordinates the Governor’s Page Program and handles various other commitments for the governor’s office. McLean says one of the most rewarding parts of her job has been “to personally get to know the people making the policy decisions that affect her family, friends and peers.”
NICOLE MCGUINNESS HINES, ’08 Nicole McGuinness Hines, ’08, is one of two legislative liaisons registered to speak to the legislature on the governor’s behalf. There are 170 legislators in the North Carolina House and Senate and more than 1,000 bills were introduced in the 2013 long session, so this is both challenging and rewarding for Hines. Luckily, Hines says, she has great relationships with many of North Carolina’s elected officials and enjoys working with them on policy and legislation that have an impact on North Carolina. Every day she’s part of the conversations about the governor’s agenda and initiatives, and helps communicate that to Senate and House members. Hines tracks all legislation moving in the General Assembly. With so many bills to keep track of, many days during the session are fast paced, high energy and lengthy. Hines says working in government isn’t always the way citizens on the outside perceive it. “There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes action,” she explained. Hines credits Meredith for getting her

where she is now. “It’s because of Meredith that I’m doing what I want to do,” said Hines. “Meredith has prepared me for a position in whatever field I choose … Meredith has prepared me for anything and I’m proud to take my experiences with me wherever I go.”
both sides of the aisle. That’s something I really work hard on.”
KAREN ROSSER, ’84
Karen Rosser, ’84, fields questions each day from the public about how to find and apply for positions in Gov. McCrory’s administration. Working with the Human Resources RESTON JONES, ’10 As the legislative session closed in July, Reston department of the Governor’s Office, “I get Jones, ’10, a member of the Legislative Affairs calls from job-seekers in all professions and staff, had 58 bills on her desk waiting for Gov. from all over the state and country wanting McCrory to sign or veto.

GREETINGS FELLOW ALUMNAE: For each of us, Meredith College holds a special place in our lives and hearts. My four years as a student were critical in developing my skills, confidence and ability to pursue my goals and dreams. Meredith offers women exceptional experiences, and I am very grateful for mine. When I was asked to join the Alumnae Association board, I was excited. It provided an opportunity for me to get more involved and help guide Meredith’s future. It has been a treasure to share this experience with other Meredith graduates, who span the decades. Meredith women inspire me to do more, give more and simply live more. As your new president of the Alumnae Association, I hope to share and pass on this sentiment. The new board will carry on Elizabeth Dove’s and the previous board’s hard work and wonderful progress in engaging more alumnae. Through Discover Meredith and the new ARMS Program, alumnae will continue assisting with recruiting talented, smart students who can continue to define and mold Meredith’s legacy. We will continue to research and utilize best practices to educate our alumnae on the importance of giving back to Meredith and the impact those gifts make on the students, faculty, staff and campus. We will assist President Allen in ensuring the direction and vision outlined in the College’s strategic plan is reached to the fullest potential. Overall, our goal is to ensure Meredith remains unique and continues to grow stronger. I am looking forward to serving you over the next two years as president of our Alumnae Association. I hope that you, too, will support Meredith by attending an event in your area or on campus, referring a prospective student or bringing one to campus, and certainly by making a gift to the College, a place that has given each of us so much. It is our duty as alumnae to share the message and mission of Meredith, and in doing so, we will continue to increase the visibility of our beloved alma mater. I hope you will join me in supporting and promoting Meredith College. Warm regards, Andrea Oakley Fox, ’95 President, Meredith College Alumnae Association

Spade won the opportunity through the Third Annual Trend*Setting Fashion Show, presented by LR Avance Enterprise LLC and The Session Magazine, in June. Through the competition, Spade was chosen to create a Spring/Summer 2014 collection for a Designer’s Review showcase. As an undergraduate, Spade also won accolades for her work. In 2011, Spade was a finalist for the International Textiles and Apparel Association’s Paris American Academy Scholarship, with a design piece called “Igniting the Change,” inspired by the BP oil rig explosion off the Gulf coast. Spade says she finds design inspiration everywhere. “Everything from constantly watching runway shows online to my daily adventures around Raleigh can become an inspiration,” Spade said. “It is incredible to see the transformation of your design from the smallest inspiration to a beautiful outfit on the runway.” Color and fabric choice are important. “People will only put something on if the color draws them in and the fabric is comfortable,” Spade said. “Because of this, I choose my colors first, then I search for beautiful, luxurious fabric. Once I find the perfect fabric, I begin my designs.” In addition to the Fashion Week opportunity, Spade has made her designs available through an online boutique called Maze’s Couture. She and her partners in the venture put on a fashion show in October to support women who have been affected by domestic violence. Spade credits the real world experience gained through Meredith’s fashion program, including an internship with designer Elie Saab while studying abroad in Paris, with giving her the skills needed to pursue a career in design. “Our professors are well connected and well educated. I learned so much and gained many experiences that not many students at other schools get the chance to do,” Spade said. “I learned that there was a possibility of doing what I love in the future. They have taught me to put my all into everything that I do.”

Alumna’s Service in South Africa Earns Praise from Nobel Prize Winner By Melyssa Allen
ary Beth Finegan, ’12, is using what she learned at Meredith College to help children in South Africa, winning praise from Nobel Peace Prize recipient Desmond Tutu. Finegan, who was a standout member of Meredith’s Avenging Angels volleyball team while earning a B.A. in communication, moved to Cape Town, South Africa, in February 2013. Finegan’s first experience in South Africa was serving as a children’s volleyball coach with Project SMASH, a Teachers for Africa program that uses volleyball to teach social skills like perseverance and patience. After three months with Project SMASH, Finegan began working with another Teachers for Africa project. Using interpersonal communication skills gained at Meredith, Finegan provided counseling to children in an underserved area of South Africa. She worked in partnership with a licensed social worker/family therapist named Sylke Funk. “The schools can barely afford to pay for enough teachers, so counseling services is something they have never been able to offer the children, nearly all of whom desperately need counseling,” Finegan explained. “The work here is extremely difficult but even more rewarding.” This spring, the work of Teachers for Africa came to the attention of former Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The organization’s local program coordinator invited Finegan to be among a small group of volunteers to attend a private church service and breakfast with Tutu. Finegan sat beside Tutu at breakfast and talked to him about her work. “He asked me to tell him all about what I was doing here, and we spoke about children’s rights and how to prevent the abuse and neglect of children,” Finegan said. “After our chat, he thanked me for the work I am doing here, and said ‘this country needs more people like you.’” Finegan is now working with Funk to start a non-governmental organization (NGO) called Umbuntu, which translates to “human kindness.” “The aim of this NGO is to provide ‘no fee’ township schools with a constant, yearround structure for counseling and therapy services, including occupational therapists, speech therapists, social workers, intervention and remedial teachers,” Finegan said. Finegan helps fill the social work and therapy needs, as the organization searches for volunteers to expand services to fulfill other needs. Along with the skills she learned in her courses, Finegan credits Meredith with helping her reach her goal of working abroad. Now she has additional goals, including earning a master’s degree in counseling or family therapy. “I was motivated and encouraged by my professors to travel and volunteer abroad following my studies,” Finegan said. “I have a huge passion for children and women’s rights, and have learned how to empower women and children living in poor communities.”
