Staying Connected to St. Margaret's School

Greetings SMS Alumnae!

February was another exciting month in the Development and Alumnae Offices. Thank you to the more than 50 alumnae who joined us in Richmond on February 23 for the 2019 Alumnae Association Meeting and Luncheon at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.

Alumnae look forward to this opportunity to hear updates from the School and catch up with friends. Part of this year's agenda was the presentation of the slate of officers for the 2019–2021 Alumnae Board. The following alumnae were nominated and unanimously approved for Board positions to being their term July 1.

  • Mary Emery Leipertz '00, President
  • Dwann Cutler '01, Vice President
  • Mary Anne Townsend Hopkins '69 P'97 '03, Past President
  • Bette Jones Albert '68
  • Courtenay Tayloe Altaffer '66 P'92
  • Anne Worthington Aycock '99
  • Jenni Booker Baker '93
  • Kelly Williams McCaskill '92
  • Marilyn Orcutt '15
  • Hannah Overton Tiffany '79 P'17
  • Patricia Anne Webb '03

The Association Meeting gave us a great opportunity to gain feedback from Alumnae. Later this spring, we will conduct an Alumnae Survey to gain further input on how to better engage Alumnae with St. Margaret's today. Stay tuned for an email between May 15-31 with a survey that we hope you will complete.

We hope you received your copy of Thistle, our 2017–2018 Philanthropy Report and Year in Review. If you missed your Thistle, please make sure St. Margaret's has your current mailing and email address. Read Thistle online.
