Alumni briefs: Quin ’73, Singh ’05, Waters ’13

Harriott Quin, MSW ’73, MDiv, is a retired minister and provider of services for homeless and battered women. She traveled from her home in Boulder, Colo., to Raleigh June 24 to take part in a Moral Monday rally. “[I] had lived in N.C. for 25 years and worked in the late 60’s and 70’s with the activist black community in Durham. I felt I had returned to the 60’s in the South as I listened to the speakers and joined in the caring participants. Hope the impetus on behalf of compassionate laws continues,” she said.
