Excerpt from The Alumnae News of the North Carolina College for Women, Vol. 13: April, 1925
However, our greatest contribution to our state and to our nation has been as teachers and mothers. Our college is the chief source of supply for the best trained teachers in our schools. Fully 95% of the alumnae have taught or are teaching. Imagine the condi tion if suddenly the great body of our teachers should be removed? Some have taught as long as twenty-five years. Some have taught a few years, reared a family, and then returned to the school room.
Linked with this great service of teaching is that of motherhood. Hundreds of our alum nae are making homes in North Carolina. What bigger' service could be asked of us than just such a service as this? There are at the college this year about seventy girls whose mothers were there before them.
But the service of the alumnae is not all. The faculty as well are doing their part to ward civic upbuilding - not only in training the alumnae, but in direct service to our citizens. For instance, a literary club in Durham asked the Dean of the English Department at our college for a lecture engagement. He wrote back that he had fifty-four previous engage ments for the spring term, but that he would be glad to deliver an address to them, if either of the three afternoons he had left would fit their program. The club accepted a date and is looking forward to his coming. Many of the faculty are rendering such a service to the people of our commonwealth.
