The Good and Difficult Life

Mary Charles Stowe, C’18, served a discernment internship in 2016, with a stipend paid by gifts to Sewanee. In this moving essay, Mary Charles describes finding her place in service to others and seeking balance in her life. In the Stronger Truer Sewanee campaign, we have set a goal to raise $4 million to support internship funding, and we have raised $3.5 million to date. The entire budget for this invaluable program comes from gifts, and we are grateful to many who have established new endowments or contributed annually through such programs as the Cornerstone and ACE internships. An internship is a critically important feature of a Sewanee education for students who take advantage of the opportunity.
