    Dear Holt family,
    We are thinking of you during this time of great loss and send our sympathy and prayers. Alumna Dr. Edith Hutto Holt was an amazing person and such a joy to know.

    We will share with our alumni community Edith’s passing during The Alumni Weekend and annual meeting of the Alumni Association. Classmates will also be notified with the announcement in our annual Greensboro College publication.

    Warmest blessings always,
