MONT AMOENA SEMINARY GIVEN STEEL RAILINGS
Special to the Observer
MOUNT PLEASANT, Oct. 22 – A pleasant visitor at the Mont Amoena seminary was Mrs. Lottie McDonald Rippy of Birmingham, Ala. a former pupil whose object was to present to the institution a pair of steel hand rails for the new cement front steps. A lovely brass plate at the head of the railings will be thus engraved:
“Love is the fulfilling of the law. Therefore the railings are lovingly presented by Lottie L. McDonald Rippy – October 19, 1924.”
This highly appreciated gift by one who does not forget the benefits she has received from her Alma Mater, makes a beautiful entrance to the already imposing edifice.
Mrs. Rippy gave the girls an inspiring and uplifting address in the chapel, the subject of the talk being “Love.” She has also kindly offered a gold medal annually for the best essay on the same subject, competition being open to the whole school.
