Centennial Celebration
Hockaday by Decade

2010s

Hockaday’s student population grew to over 1,000

Lyda Hill '60 made a historic gift of $20 million (the largest single gift to Hockaday and the largest single gift from a living alumna among independent girls' schools) for the construction of new classrooms and research space for science, technology, engineering, and math, as well as faculty development.

Kim Wargo became the third Eugene McDermott Headmistress.

The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) program continues to grow as the Pre-K, Primer, and Kindergarten explore earth science. This marks the first year that Hockaday students from every grade level participated in the sciences.

Hockaday celebrated its Centennial in 2013. As we reflect on the past, we honor those who came before us in Hockaday History and look forward with hope to Hockaday’s future.
