During Reunion 2021 Career Day, eight alumnae offered students opportunities to hear, and ask questions, about their education and career journeys. Last week we shared the career journeys of Patia Fann ’16, Adela Griswold ’06, Caitlin Lighthouse ’06, and Flora Theden ’07.
Following are highlights from the remaining alumnae who participated.
Rachel Means '08 was going to be a physician. After graduating from Foxcroft, she headed for Davidson and began to fulfill that childhood dream by taking a pre-med curriculum, even as she continued her art studies with an art scholarship. When she began to struggle on the pre-med side and encountered some clear signs that being a doctor was not the path for her, she resisted letting go of that long-held desire; she pressed on. And, despite art classes since childhood and obvious talent, Rachel admits it took a while to embrace herself as an artist. Finally, in her junior year, those realizations came to fruition after a study-abroad trip to Zambia. Rachel graduated with a major in Studio Art and began the process of embracing this new direction for her life — a process she advises is ongoing throughout one’s life.
After visiting artist Rachel Means ’08 finished her community presentation, she hosted a mixed media workshop with a few art students. Each student created a piece inspired by a written work or a poem. One student even used Means’ presentation as inspiration. The results are beautiful.
In addition to our phenomenal keynote speaker Andrea Ewing Reid ’80, eight other alumnae offered students opportunities to hear, and ask questions, about their education and career journeys. Those alumnae included: Wendy Arundel ’80, Margaret Midyette Barber ’00, Patia Fann ’16, Claire Foster ’01, Adela Griswold ’06, Caitlin Lighthouse ’06, Lisa Lowman ’87, Flora Theden ’07.
