Alumna to Speak at Founder’s Day

October 1, 2015

U.S. Air Force Major Trimble L. Bailey Spitzer ’99 is scheduled to deliver this year’s Founder’s Day address at 12:15 p.m. October 8. She is Division Director for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility for the Naval Medical Center at Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Portsmouth.

Her Founders Day address is titled “Bold and Brave Pioneers of Baldwin.”

The event — always held near Mary Julia Baldwin’s October 4 birthday — honors Baldwin, who led the Augusta Female Seminary for 34 years, and her teacher and first-founder of the seminary, Rufus Bailey. Members of the senior class are invited to wear their caps and gowns to the ceremony, held annually in First Presbyterian Church, and process from the college’s Administration Building across Frederick Street.
