When Gladys Woodward Hubbard graduated from Sweet Briar in 1924, she couldn’t possibly have imagined the profound impact the College would have on her son nearly a century later. Since 2007, Leverett Hubbard Jr. has made several substantial gifts to Sweet Briar in his mother’s honor — most recently donating $500,000 to restore and maintain the Chaplain’s House.
Thanks to generous contributions to scholarships and other funds from alumnae, parents and friends of the College, Sweet Briar continues to thrive as a vibrant academic community, helping to prepare the next generation of women leaders. Hear from some of our most passionate supporters.
Winnie Leigh Hamlin ’58 knew Eleanor Barton as a teacher and Aileen “Ninie” Laing ’57 as a contemporary — and recognized the profound influence of both women on generations of Sweet Briar students. That’s why she gave the College $1 million in their honor.
