Excited about renewing the bond of friendship, a
group of Carey grads met about six months ago after
not seeing each other for 40 years. This group of women
who worked from 1967 until 1972 for Sarah Gray Burrus,
former WCU registrar, call themselves “Sarah’s Girls.” They
now meet every six weeks for lunch in Hattiesburg, with
WCU Homecoming providing the venue for their latest
meeting. Guided by Carey Connection member Molly
Wilkinson, a mass communication major from Pascagoula,
the group toured the campus and noted the changes that
have occurred in the last 43 years.
The Office of Alumni Relations teamed with Balfour and Barnes and
Noble at William Carey University to host the first Crusader Ring Ceremony
in the Lucile Parker Gallery on April 24, 2013. WCU President Dr. Tommy
King presented each senior with his or her class ring. Pictured are Dr. King
and Dr. Scott Hummel, executive vice president and provost, with WCU
seniors who participated in the event. This meaningful ceremony will be a
continuing tradition at WCU.
