Alumni Bulletin


The Winter 1971 Alumni Bulletin features an image and accompanying profile of Irene Ebhomielen of Nigeria. Ebhomielen was an international student on the University of Richmond campus, attending the University partly because of the financial assistance of the Westhampton College YWCA. Ebhomielen was the 15th student to come to the United States and Westhampton in the YWCA program’s 20-year history. The article mentions Ebhomielen’s plans to receive a bachelor of arts degree and then continuing to study for a master’s degree. The YWCA was led by Jean Mahaffey, who stated that “The Westhampton students are very enthusiastic and energetic about being involved in community action projects.” Mahaffry also said, “The Westhampton women have a tremendous amount of insight and understanding into the human situation. They are looking for outlets through which to use their concern for humanity.”
