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.
