Dear Class Members,

Happy Spring!

The healing potential of the spring season is undeniable. Many believe increased sunlight improves mood and stimulates hope. Hope is the belief that our future can be better than our past, and that we have a role to play in making that future a reality.

In preparation for our 50th reunion, each of us can play a role in shaping the future for Smith. We can serve as role models for future generations of Smithies through the camaraderie and inclusiveness exemplified by our strong and diverse class community. We can deliver life changing educational opportunities for Smith students through support of the Smith Fund, the Class of 1974 Scholarship Fund, and/or Planned Gifts.

l remain hopeful we will continue to support class efforts to reconnect and celebrate our Smith relationships. I remain hopeful we will provide support to the college ensuring our class plays a role in strengthening access and affordability for exceptional young women who dream of the reality of a Smith education. I remain hopeful the Class of ’74 will help make Smith even better than it is today and that we will leave a lasting impact on Smith’s future.

Please join me in making these hopes a reality.

Looking forward to seeing everyone “in-person” soon!

Linda Smith Charles

Class President
