"Sharp of Mind," Indeed.

MLC's state documents librarian, Greg, found this (eye-burningly bright) edition of Southern News and Views from September 1972 (Volume XII, No. 1) and thought we would enjoy reading about the remarkable Mrs. John Heiss. And we did!



We were charmed by Mrs. Heiss and her determination! In case Mrs. Heiss's future is too bright for you to read (might I suggest shades for that?), it states that she completed her undergraduate degree at the W in 1901 and had just received her master's in 1972!

Let's see...that means I'm due for another degree in 2067.
