ROCK HILL, S.C. - Tabi Yothers ’64 has committed $70,000 in a planned gift that will sustain two endowed funds honoring the Winthrop experiences of her sister and late mother. Yothers’ gift will support both the Tabbie Kemp Altman Endowed Fund and the Barbara Lynn Altman Endowed Fund. Yothers established the funds to commemorate her mother, Tabbie K. Altman ’37, and her sister, Barbara L. Altman ’67. Yothers noted that her own “positive and enduring” time at Winthrop pushed her to support her alma mater.
“I believe people should give back,” added Yothers. She explained that her mother and sister also had positive experiences at Winthrop, prompting Yothers to give back in gratitude for the “wonderful life lessons all three of us experienced.”
Yothers, who grew up across the United States, now resides in Falls Church, Va. She continues to travel extensively and operates a flea market/antiques booth in Culpeper, Va. Yothers also is writing a book about her many travels in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
