The centenary celebrations of the Women’s Christian College came to a close on July 7.
The Centenary Block, which houses an Auditorium, Conference Halls and Classrooms, was dedicated by Rt. Rev. Prince G Singh, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, USA and Rev. Isaac E Johnson, Presbyter, St. Andrews Church, The Kirk. The chief guest, Prince of Arcot Nawab Mohammed Abdul Ali, released the first copy of a coffee table book, which was a centenary initiative. Nawab Abdul Ali lauded the college for its efforts in providing holistic education to women and underlined the role of education in being proactive. Ms. Ruth Manorama, also an alumna of the college, spoke at the ceremony and commended the role of the college in shaping character of women and sensitising them to social issues towards creating an egalitarian society.
