Class Notes



Alice Winecoff Clayton has been busy assisting her six-year-old granddaughter with daily home learning this past year. Her pandemic-born granddaughter will be a year old in June 2021. She feels fortunate to still have her parents, who are 93 and 92, and will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary in June 2021. 

Christy Farrior continues to love working as a music associate at First United Methodist Church in Cary, N.C. Farrior also writes that she loves living near Meredith friends who live in or near the Triangle. 

Peggy Walser Howard, Lissy Wall, Jeanie Alford Scott, Kathy Harrison, Kathy Fleetwood McNeill, Hope Faircloth Coffey, Christy Farrior, Paige Foster Lamberson, and Cindy Godwin have not had an in-person get together since January 2020 thanks to COVID-19. However, they have stayed in touch, had some FaceTime and Zoom communications, and are looking forward to an in-person gathering this spring since they have all received their vaccine. Howard jokes that it sounds like they are being boarded at the kennel! Howard also writes that she has a new grandson who was born in March 2020. She has only seen him once but plans to be in New Jersey for birthday celebrations in 2021. 

Equilla Minga celebrated 30 years with the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations, where she is the senior evaluator in the Nuclear Asset Protection Department/Chemistry. Minga also traveled to Jordan and Israel in 2019 and found it to be very rejuvenating in every way. 

With her degree in business education for teaching in high school, Frankie Houser Petty never could have imagined that she would be helping “teach” Kindergarten and second grade to her grandchildren for their remote/virtual learning in 2020-21. It has been quite a pandemic learning experience for her! Petty writes that she has had to learn “new math” and many other technological terms and functions. She guesses that she can still learn new things at age 68!
