Why I Give

Sally Mott Freeman '72

"Thanks to the St. Anne’s ‘village’ of relentlessly smart, caring, and tough-minded faculty and staff, I matured, and eventually excelled. I cannot think of another period in my life that affected more positive change, stimulated greater self-discipline, personal confidence, and intellectual curiosity than those four years."
