Since her graduation in 1963, Dottie Myers McGirt has excelled in many arenas – as a teacher, t-ball and tennis coach, wine and kitchen shop owner, and community volunteer. Through it all, her appreciation for the opportunities Converse afforded her has deepened, compelling her to support the Converse Annual Fund every single year for more than half a century. “I found a connection at Converse, a circle of like-minded women who will forever be called friends,” she explains. “My experience is something I want to share with others and if I can do that by giving to the Annual Fund, then it’s worth supporting.”

“My experience is something I want to share with others and if I can do that by giving to the Annual Fund, then it’s worth supporting.”

McGirt has remained connected through Converse alumnae events in North Carolina and enjoyed being back on campus for her 50th Reunion, but her most ardent focus is on supporting the young women who follow in her footsteps. Her loyalty to Converse makes a tangible difference to the College. “Attending a women’s college provides many opportunities for women to grow as strong leaders,” McGirt says. “I believe in the College’s mission and I hope that by giving each year, I can continue to support single-gender education and the nurturing community that is Converse.”
