Alumnae Board of Visitors

The Alumnae Board of Visitors are dedicated supporters of the School and its programs. They span the U.S. and the world; and within their communities, they act as goodwill ambassadors for Hockaday, with responsibilities from meeting prospective students and answering questions to offering input on current curriculum and programs. Each member serves a three-year term. Every year, they meet before Alumnae Day to review the past year's opportunities and set goals for the year to come.

Board of Visitors members are selected and notified in the fall. If you are interested in the program or would like to nominate someone, please contact the Alumnae Office for more information.

A Hockaday Class Agent acts as a liaison between you, the alumna, and the School. Whether fund raising or communications, your class agent strives to keep you connected to Hockaday.

Your Communications Class Agent is your connection to the Hockaday Magazine and the Alumnae Office. Please contact your Communications Class Agent at her email listed below with any news or updates, whether it's a college graduation, birth of a child, a promotion or retirement or the accomplishments of your family.

Your Fund Raising Class Agent represents your class during the Annual Fund. Always feel free to contact her if you have any questions or if you are interested in volunteering for Hockaday fund raising activities like the Annual Fund Connect-a-thons. They are a great way to stay in touch with your classmates.

The Alumnae Office is in need of either Fund Raising or Communications Class Agents for each of the classes listed below. If you are interested in volunteering as a Class Agent, please call the Alumnae Office at 214.360.6531 or email alumnae@hockaday.org.
