Honouring the Ewart Legacy
On August 22, 2012, over 35 Ewart alumnae and friends, representing graduating classes from as early as 1940 gathered on the lawn of the south quad at Knox, travelling from as far as Alberta and Nova Scotia to enjoy an afternoon of sunshine, a spot of tea and fellowship with old friends.
“Ewart’s emphasis on women’s leadership, Christian education and lay leadership continues today at Knox College,” Principal Dorcas Gordon said. “Today we recognize the myriad of women who lived out the legacy of Ewart, and here at Knox, we think about its ongoing contribution to the College as we continue to define the types of ministries the church needs now and into the future.”
The event was a great opportunity for alumnae to reminisce about their times at Ewart, enjoy sandwiches and scones served on plates from Ewart’s dining room and to browse through some memorabilia such as one of the many quilts made by Presbyterian women for the Ewart residence.
