On June 6, 2017, Harriet Conger Glover '52HS '54C appeared in a special WRAL Weather Center video. Interviewed by fellow alumna and WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner '87, Harriet shared how her grandfather, ER Conger, began his work in Edenton, N.C. in 1897 as the first volunteer weather observer for the Weather Bureau and how the Conger family has continued that tradition over the last 120 year.

Class of 2017, I would like to start by saying how humbled I am to be up here speaking on behalf of the senior class.
Seventeen years ago, my dad passed away from melanoma skin cancer, leaving my mom to take care of three young kids; my brothers were four and six, and I was about to turn two. During this time, we were surrounded by many family members and friends, but a certain group of people stood out the most. This group hailed from Saint Mary's – they were my mom's friends from her time as a student here and they were there for my family through it all. They have watched me grow up and these women continue to be a huge part of my life to this day.
