Accepting a friendly amendment from Mary Brewer Guthrow ’65 to add "Alumnae" to the revised name, the alumnae voted to support the amendments as presented. The new name of the Association will be Randolph-Macon Woman’s College Alumnae and Randolph College Alumni Association.
The vote was 1973 in favor, 871 opposed. The percentage was 69.4% in favor, 30.6% opposed. A 66.7% favorable vote was required for the motion to carry.
We want to thank everyone who voted, thank those who made a special effort to encourage alumnae to vote, and thank everyone who stayed involved and connected through this very long process.
