Ever Leading

Margaret Wren de St. Aubin first tapped into her leadership ability as a Mary Baldwin student during the late 1970s; now two Virginia Women's Institute for Leadership cadets benefit from her generosity as recipients of a scholarship established by the Board of Trustees member. The scholarship is one of dozens that bring MBC closer to meeting its historic fundraising goal through Ever Ahead, the college's largest campaign to date.
