Myrtie Adkins

Class of 1964
Major/Minor: Political Science

Myrtie graduated from WC with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science. She received her master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Loyola College (now University) in Baltimore.

Her first job after graduation was with the Maryland State Department of Education which satisfied a 2-year obligation to “pay back” her State scholarship. Somehow, that initial 2 years eventually turned into working in various capacities with MSDE for 32 years. She was fortunate to be in a position in later years to recruit and subsequently hire a number of WC graduates.

After retiring, she did some consulting work and has since continued to enjoy travel, volunteering, and boating (power) with her husband of 40 years.

Although she was an avid reader from an early age, she wonders if the Poly Sci requirements for news-related events influenced her lifelong habit of reading a couple of newspapers every day, various magazines, and of course, books.

Myrtie is forward to seeing all of our former classmates at the 50th Year Reunion!
