A Delightful Person: Meredith Edney


the story: meredith is one of my sister’s dearest friends and sorority sisters at samford. i felt like i knew meredith before i even started school because mary austin talked about her so much. when i got to samford i was so excited when i ran into a girl who knew my name and who i assumed (for some reason) was my sister’s roommate, sarah. we had what was probably a very confusing conversation, then i realized much too late that i had been talking to meredith! i was mortified, but meredith didn’t care! i definitely know who she is now — one of my favorite girls!
