Libby Cuttino Tilson ’79

"My mother was introduced to Converse by her piano teacher in Atlanta, Georgia."

Libby Cuttino Tilson, Class of 1979, reflects on connecting with her mother, Molly Leatherwood Cuttino '49. Libby and her mother still sing the Converse Alma Mater, despite Mrs. Cuttino's challenges with Alzheimer's. Both mother and daughter were piano students at Converse. After Converse, Libby went on to receive a Master's in Choral Conducting from Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY. She is currently the Performing Arts Chair and Choral Director at Providence Day School in Charlotte, NC.

About the Project

In celebration of our 125th anniversary, Converse is recording conversations that capture the unique voice, value and vision of our College community. The project launched during Reunion Weekend 2014, with a team of student digital journalists interviewing alumni, students, faculty and staff. The resulting stories span decades of friendships, life experiences and careers. The Conversations project was funded by a gift from President Betsy Fleming in honor of the College's anniversary.
