Meet Our Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors welcome prospective students, parents, faculty, alumni, and special guests to campus through tours, panels, and events. This club of 130 upper school students serves as a face for Harpeth Hall in the greater community. Meet our three wonderful Student Ambassador officers for the 2023-24 school year. 

Jamisyn Larkin, 12th grade
President

Hi, my name is Jamisyn, and I am a senior this year as well as the president of ambassadors! Over the past 7 years at Harpeth Hall, I've been a part of student council, dance company, and many sports! In the upper school, I've joined many clubs such as Act Now and Logos while also being the president of the Black student Alliance and BELONG. 

What has been your favorite class at Harpeth Hall so far?

My favorite class has been global contemporary issues! I loved getting to learn more about what is going on in the world and broadening my horizons. While taking the class I got to participate in group discussions and give many presentations on my new discoveries.

What do you love about Harpeth Hall?

Harpeth Hall would not be the same without its amazing faculty and staff! Every teacher makes learning an enjoyable experience for each girl. 

In what ways have you felt encouraged or motivated to try something new at Harpeth Hall?

During my sophomore year, I decided I wanted to try something new for school. My friends had told me they were joining dance company and that I should give it a try! On the day of auditions, I admitted to my friend how nervous I was to join. I had no prior dancing experience, and didn’t want to embarrass myself. My friend gave me some encouraging advice before I began. She told me to not let my fears prevent me from trying new things. I took her advice and began my audition. Without her words of encouragement, I would have never joined dance, and had the opportunity to find a new hobby.

What makes Harpeth Hall more than just a school to you?

The teachers, faculty, and staff provide a welcoming environment that makes Harpeth Hall more than just a school. The community of teachers strive to push each student out of her comfort zone and exceed her limitations. They are devoted to make learning fun, enjoyable, and accessible for everyone. Every morning and afternoon you are greeted with a friendly smile from all the staff.

Isabel Johnson, 12th grade
Vice President

Hi, my name is Isabel. I have been a Harpeth Hall student since 5th grade, and I truly have cherished my time here. I have found my passion through the electives offered as well as extracurriculars. I am the Mock Trial team captain, where I have gotten to develop my confidence and find my voice. I am also a Fellow of Christian Athletes officer, senior class officer, spirit club captain, and ambassador vice president! I have the best friends here, and I am so grateful for the faculty and how much they care for all of us.

What is your favorite class?

My favorite class I have completed is democracy and leadership with Dr. Fulwider. It was the first class that felt specialized on my aspirations for the future and confirmed my interest in law and government. The class introduced me to my fascination with the Constitution.

What do you love about Harpeth Hall?

I love all the leadership opportunities available to the students.

In what ways have you felt encouraged or motivated to try something new at Harpeth Hall?

When I was an underclassmen, I really looked up to the older girls. When I saw their involvement in things like the ambassador program or Mock Trial, it encouraged me to join. The upperclassmen here do a great job of motivating others to join clubs and extracurriculars as well as welcoming them.

What makes Harpeth Hall more than just a school to you?

The relationships I have made at Harpeth Hall are so special. I am so grateful to be a part of a community where my peers and teachers are rooting for me in all aspects of life. I was really shown this support when I got sick, and I had all my teachers and friends rallying behind me the whole way through.

Sarah Hinds, 12th grade
Secretary 

Hi, my name is Sarah, and I have attended Harpeth Hall since 5th grade. I am a member of the Harpeth Hall rowing team, and I also play tennis! My favorite aspect of Harpeth Hall is the sense of community that it provides to everyone on campus. Each girl can confidently be her true, authentic self and know that she is LOVED!

What is your favorite class?

In middle school, my favorite class was 6th grade science because that was where I first found my love for biology. I had so much fun transforming the entire class into a cell...that was definitely the highlight! In upper school, AP English language in 11th grade has been my favorite class so far at Harpeth Hall. I absolutely loved reading the coolest nonfiction articles, and I truly found my voice in that class. I learned how to make a claim confidently and be able to support it with logical evidence.

What do you love about Harpeth Hall?

All of the people on campus — the faculty, staff, and your classmates—  are your biggest cheerleaders and want the very best for you.

In what ways have you felt encouraged or motivated to try something new at Harpeth Hall?

I learned about rowing in 9th grade, and I decided that I wanted to try it out my sophomore year. If it was not for the encouragement of my peers, I would not have joined the team and be where I am today!

What makes Harpeth Hall more than just a school to you?

Harpeth Hall is a community, not simply a place that you go to for 8 hours every day. At Harpeth Hall, a lot of the learning happens beyond standard core classes; I learn from my peers and teachers every day. I don't just learn math and English; I learn how to be a confident young woman, student, teammate, leader, and citizen.
