Meredith College hosted a groundbreaking ceremony on September 8, 2023, to celebrate the construction of a new softball, tennis, and golf complex that will allow athletes adequate space to train. Chris Speight Brown, ’76, along with her siblings, gave a $1 million lead gift that will name the Estes-Speight Family Athletic Complex in memory of her mother Mary Estes Speight, ʼ53, and her father Bobby Speight.
Each semester, the Alumnae Association and Office of Alumnae Relations host a student-focused event to engage, support, and foster outreach to all current students. The events provide students with an opportunity to connect with active alumnae volunteers, who share ways in which they have remained involved with their alma mater.
