Rent, Clyda S.
This paper presents a speech by the President of the Mississippi University for Women (MUW), on the history of MUW and her secrets of success as an educator and administrator. The speech traces the history of MUW, founded in 1884 as the first public college for women in the United States. It lists the accomplishments of distinguished alumni, faculty, and administrators. The speech argues that MUW consistently graduates remarkable women because it treats people as individuals first and foremost and sets high standards for its students. The speech then looks at factors that contribute to success in life for women, such as being true to one's moral compass, establishing one's independence, keeping a sense of humor, and moving forward from adversity. The speech also examines the role of women in leadership and discusses factors that prevent women from succeeding in life. (MDM)
