A Place in the Sun
In late April, more than 450 alumnae from 14 classes returned to campus to celebrate and remember their time at Scripps. They reconnected with classmates, celebrated the success of the Campaign for the Scripps Woman, and enjoyed class dinners and special programs, as well as the dedication of Mary Wig Johnson Court. At Convocation, Stacia Deutsch ’90 introduced her sister Karen Deutsch ’97, a public health activist, as the Outstanding Recent Alumna (read an excerpt from Karen’s speech on p. 44); President Bekavac presented the Distinguished Alumna Award to film editor Dede Allen ’45. In her acceptance speech, Dede said: “Karen does the real work—I just had fun.”This year’s reunion classes pledged an impressive $783,502 to Scripps.
