Alumnae & Students Enjoy Homecoming in the Berkshires
Great conversations, great connections, and great weather marked the second annual “Come Home” celebration, which saw trailblazing MHS alumnae return to campus for a wonderful weekend.
Thank you to all who joined us on Friday and Saturday! We enjoyed seeing alumnae and friends back for a weekend of catching up, volleyball and soccer matchups, and even a bonfire in the Quad.
Our Alumnae Library, featuring inspiring MHS women from across the decades, was well attended by adults and students. Thank you to our “books” — MHS Board President Nancy Gustafson Ault ’73, Rachel Ingram ’09, Kristin Luckenbill (daughter of Julie Luckenbill ’67), Ellen Holmes Maloney ’57, Robin Peterson ’89, Kathleen (Katie) Sagarin ’08, Hannah Van Sickle ’92, Hope Ward ’11, Edie Stetson Yovu ’67, and Yiyan Zhou ’91 — for connecting with students and community members eager to learn about different pathways, identities, and mark-making in the world.
Saturday afternoon’s Horizons Spotlight in the Jeannie Norris Horizons Studio was also a smashing success. Five seniors — Olivia Irion, Lyn Liu, Matilda Tran, Ayla Wallace, and Yaya Wang — pitched their Horizons projects to alumnae and Trustee visitors, who offered suggestions, feedback, and advice on their concepts, which they will work on independently for the coming year. Who knows, the students might have even found some mentors!
Thank you to everyone who toured the campus, stopped by the new School Store to pick up MHS gear, and cheered on the soccer and volleyball teams.
