The DFW Smith College Alumnae Club was re-established in the Summer of 2009. We are a club functioning solely on volunteers, with no elected officers. We organize about four events a year, one for each season. Its just plain and simple with us; if you want to volunteer and organize an event, just email us and we can help you get started!

Our goal is to connect the over 300 Smithies in the DFW metroplex and start a solid club of sisterhood and Smithie relationships.

In the future, we would like more recruitment of young women in the DFW area to Northampton, and would love to establish a scholarship fund for those looking to attend Smith.

At the moment, we are in need of bright and energetic Smithies full of ideas looking to volunteer and organize an event in the area. As you may know, Smith is amazing and can change your life and has done so for many of us. We would like to offer that to more young women and continue a strong foundation for Smith Alumni.

We look forward to meeting you!

Have questions or want to volunteer? Email us at dfwsmithclub@gmail.com.

Alumna Cheryl Wattley Wins the Oklahoma Book Award for Non-Fiction

Cheryl Wattley was fortunate to receive the Oklahoma Book Award for Non-Fiction in April 2015.  

Her book, A Step Toward Brown v. Board of Education: Ada Lois Sipuel Fisher and Her Fight to End Segregation, is a biography about the woman who caused the University of Oklahoma to be desegregated. Sipuel Fisher was a NAACP plaintiff; her case was ruled upon by the U.S. Supreme Court. It was one of the graduate school cases that lead to Brown.  The Supreme Court decision in her case jump started the NAACP fight against educational segregation after WWII and caused Arkansas and Delaware to immediately end segregation in graduate education;  Oklahoma followed suit in 10 months.
