Last Year's Come Home

Last September, 125 alumnae, and friends gathered to celebrate the 120th birthday of Miss Hall’s.

The fall weather was glorious, and the highlight of the event—besides the countless hugs—was a conversation among Julia Heaton, retired Head Jeannie Norris, and three amazing young alumnae: Melissa Fares ’10, Alisha Malkani ’13, and Masha Jones Slavin ’07. The discussion, moderated by MHS Director of Horizons Alison Basdekis, was filmed by MHS student Celcie Tetteh '21.

Watch the panel discussion, view photos and read more from last year.
