Happy 100th Birthday Peggy!

A group of us had the honor of attending fellow Alpha Chi Omega Peggy's 100th birthday party yesterday at Westminster Oaks. It was so nice to meet her friends and former co-workers! We learned some fun facts:

  • Peggy was a real beauty! She was Miss University of Oklahoma her junior year in college, and still wears a tiara with style and grace.
  • She was a pioneer in the career world. She moved to Chicago for her first job, directly after graduating from University of Oklahoma, and later served as personal secretary to four of Florida's State Attorneys General. 
  • Peggy credits her longevity to having never driven a car. In Tallahassee, she lived downtown where she could walk to her office at the Capitol every day.
