In addition to regularly scheduled Alumni Weekend activities, we proudly dedicated the Dot Blair and Mary Tallent Reading Center. Hargrave would like to thank all who have supported the reading program and would also like to give a special thank you to Proctor Dean, class of ‘84, for making the Dot Blair and Mary Tallent Reading Center possible.

These are national awards, with the candidates selected from hundreds of postgraduate programs from coast to coast.
