Sally Hudson Gulley was ready to return to work in 1970 when her six children were all in school and lucky for Bowman Gray School of Medicine, Sally was hired to be Dr. Emery Miller's secretary.
Dr. Miller was associate dean for Continuing Education, the newest department in the school. Sally worked with him for 21 years before enjoying her retirement party on December 19, 1991, as she is seen in the photograph holding the present. In the second photograph, an unidentified person is enjoying a laugh with Jim Leist, assistant dean for Continuing Education, at the party in Babcock foyer.
Sally was raised in Winston-Salem; graduated from Wake Forest and married Dr. Marcus Gulley in 1948. Dr. Gulley was a psychiatrist at the medical school for a number of years. While attending college, Sally's brother Bill, brought home his friend, Marcus, and that was their first encounter. Sally was 14.
Upon graduation from college, Sally was a teacher at the Old Gray High School before settling down to take care of her six children plus many others in a "day camp" affectionately called Camp Runaday Beach in the Runnymeade neighborhood of Winston-Salem. According to her oral history, Sally says: the key word within the family that we tried to get across was the word "respect."
Sally earned respect away from home as well especially as president of the Medical Center Guild in the 1970s. She and Guild members worked tirelessly for the Intensive Care Nursery, raising $1800.00 for nursery equipment and starting the newborn baby pictures program in 1974.
