From The Archives: Introducing a piece of HPU history in each monthly newsletter! Learning about our history is essential to understanding the roots of our alma mater. Featuring, the story of Alice Chandler McEwen, Class of 1941, who was named Miss High Point College. She was included in Look magazine's feature titled "Most Beautiful College Girls of 1941". Not only was she beautiful, Alice also did her part to boost sailors' morale during World War II by writing them letters. Alice was able to reconnect with Joe Grimes, the crew's primary letter-writer, in the mid 90s. Grimes has since passed, and his son, Warren (HPU Alumnus, Class of 1970), still keeps in touch with Alice today. Alice's daughter also graduated from High Point College in 1969. We can't believe HPC is a common thread in this story over a 30-year period!
