During this time of social distancing, with more time at home, many of us have been keeping busy cleaning and organizing our homes. Picket Randolph ’56 was doing just that, tidying up her desk when she made a joyous discovery. Her mother had saved almost all of the letters Pickett had written her as a student at Foxcroft! Pickett happily strolled down memory lane, reading all that her teenage self had to report about roommates (whom she loved), the food, homesickness, and of course, her dreams of making the Fox team!
When finished, many of us would have simply tucked those letters back into that desk to rediscover another time, but not Pickett. Instead, she took the time to contact almost all of the remaining members of the Class of 1956! She says, “I spoke with some I hadn’t had any contact [with] since a rainy June 1956 graduation.” Foxcroft friends truly are friends for life. And what, you may ask, did Pickett learn from catching up with her classmates? “We are a wonderful group of women - strong, mostly well, and I am blessed to have them as my friends. Miss Charlotte would’ve been proud of us.”
