Staying Connected to St. Margaret's School
Greetings fellow Alumnae!
February was another exciting month in the Development and Alumnae Offices. Thank you to the more than 50 On behalf of the Alumnae Association and St. Margaret's, I hope you are enjoying Spring! It is an exceptionally busy time of year at St. Margaret's and we have exciting things to report.
Thanks to the many alumnae who returned to campus this past weekend for Alumnae Weekend. Good times were shared by many and it was personally a delight to celebrate my 50th Reunion with 12 members of the Class of 1969. We had a blast sharing old memories, laughs, and hearing classmate Mary Gwathmey Michaux deliver her reflection on her experience as an SMS girl 50 years ago with Karen Carpenter '94 and Sarah Keating '09.
Many alumnae shared that they had a wonderful time getting to connect with current SMS girls at the Charms Chapel service, Blue/Grey Games, and other festivities throughout the weekend. At the Saturday Luncheon and formal Alumnae Association Meeting, we honored Kate-Rucker Penn Taylor '83 with the Hannah Mallory Perkins '40 Alumnae Service Award. Also, we honored Hillary Pugh Kent '99 with the Distinguished Alumna Award.
Thanks to all who attended including Alumnae who volunteered to help staff the weekend activities and keep things running smoothly. We hope you enjoy the Alumnae Weekend Slideshow of pictures from the weekend!

2019 Alumnae Survey | May 16 - 21
Mark your Calendars! From May 16-31, the Alumnae and Development Offices will be conducting an Alumnae wide survey. SMS is interested in hearing from alumnae about how they would prefer to be engaged and contacted by the School. We look forward to hearing from SMS Alumnae to better inform our communications strategies.
