Seen and Heard at Scripps


This fall, the College hosted its inaugural Scripps in Residence program, bringing current students and accomplished alumnae and parents together to talk about paths to professional success after graduation. A highlight of the two-day program was the lively panel discussion, which elicited sage advice and life lessons from participants Stacia Deutsch ’90, New York Times bestselling children’s book author; Valerie Haselton ’92, founder and co-president, Sirens Media; Christine Hickman P’15, retired law professor; Lucinda Bowen Smith ’88, senior vice president, global business services, AGCO Corporation; and Tiombe Sewell Wallace ’95, psychotherapist, trainer, and owner, Tiombe MFT, Inc.


“It’s okay to know that there are several fabulous paths you could follow in life, but you are only going to take one.”

— Valerie Haselton ’92


“If you can be open to change and be flexible, that’s the key to success. And don’t try to have everyone like you. Respect is so much more important, and in the workplace that’s the thing that’s the most valuable.”

— Lucinda Bowen Smith ’88
