Miriam Stephens Kindred ’51

Miriam Stephens Kindred’s defining moment came many years after graduating from Cottey. “In 1978, I became the first woman manager and stock broker at E.F. Hutton. I realized it was because of Cottey.” Though Miriam had come from a legacy P.E.O. family, she was the first to attend Cottey. An ambitious learner who naturally excelled at intellectual pursuits, Miriam was surprised by the academic challenge, the variety of clubs and sports, and the high expectations she found at Cottey.

“Cottey had a way of making you feel that you needed to do your best. I owe my success in life to Cottey.”
