Paramount Obligation

The choices we make come with responsibilities attached.

I always remember this quote as "The paramount obligation of a WOMEN'S college..." and I think it's pretty amazing that EBScripps didn't say that, back in the 1920's, but instead spoke about all colleges. She was pretty badass--one of my heroines.

When Ellen Browning Scripps founded Scripps College in 1926, she did so with a clear idea of what kind of an education she wanted for the women who attended. Her legacy is the thousands of confident, courageous and hopeful women who impact the communities they touch, for the rest of their lives.

What is your paramount obligation?

How will you work towards meeting it?
