Yesterday Jill Ker Conway, former president of Smith College and avid supporter of women’s athletics, spoke at the opening dinner for the Women’s Education Worldwide Conference. Mackenzie is working for the conference and Emma came to hear Jill Ker Conway speak. Afterwards we met President Conway, who supported Maura and Margaret in their Channel crossing 27 years ago. She was very excited to hear that two more Smithies were taking on the challenge and upon meeting us gave us a big hug! We were so thrilled to meet her, and we hope that she will continue to follow our progress as our training continues.
