A Life-Changing Experience
Mary Geddes Avery '50 as an Emerson student
The more than six decades that have passed since Mary Geddes Avery ’50 graduated from Emerson College have not dimmed her affection and enthusiasm for her alma mater one bit.
“Emerson means everything to me,” she says. “I’ve always thought it was a marvelous, wonderful school with so much to offer.”
Mary credits Emerson with providing her a place to stretch creatively, forge close friendships with a tightknit group of classmates, and prepare to work in radio. Following her graduation, she enjoyed a career working for stations in Florida and Arizona.
She says, “I simply can’t imagine life without my Emerson experience.”
Now a resident of Belchertown, Massachusetts, Mary enjoys being closer to Emerson, often attending alumni events in Boston and making annual gifts to the College.
Mary has also found another meaningful way to stay connected to Emerson, one that extends even beyond her lifetime: she’s made a bequest to the College (please see reverse for more information about bequests).
“I’m glad I’m able to do it,” Mary says of the legacy she has created through this planned gift. “I’m very, very proud to say that I’m an Emerson graduate.”
