At the Tidewater Clemson Club’s watch party for the 2021 Clemson Football Homecoming game versus Boston College, one of their oldest and most active members, Web Sullivan ’65, reconnected by chance with Emily Smith Washington. They were both in Clemson’s freshman class of 1960. Washington says she was one of only four women in the student body.
The Baltimore/Washington, D.C., Clemson Club held their Moms’ Care Package Party on February 3.
