Harpeth Hall Alumnae
O Harpeth Hall, O Place Beloved
Celebrating 6,000 plus alumnae in 49 states and 30 countries
When Harpeth Hall students graduate, they join a network of more than 5,500 alumnae across the nation and around the globe. These women — intelligent, ambitious, and determined — represent the very best of Harpeth Hall, a place that, for more than 150 years, has held true to the essential idea that girls deserve an excellent education full of possibilities and purpose.
The Harpeth Hall ConnectHER provides programs and initiatives to foster relationships between alumnae and strengthen connections to the school they love. HHConnectHER operates as a networking group, a book club, a mentoring program, an events manager, and much, much more! Through this platform, our alumnae can empower and support one another building upon the foundation of Harpeth Hall’s career connections and annual events.
The Alumnae Network
Harpeth Hall is committed to keeping our alumnae connected beyond their years on campus. The Alumnae Network is an easy and secure way to reconnect and network with classmates and mentors. The Network combines your public information from LinkedIn and Facebook with the information you have shared with Harpeth Hall, making it a powerful tool that is free and only for our alumnae.
Alumnae Awards and Spotlights
Harpeth Hall honors alumnae with three different awards, the Harpeth Hall/Ward-Belmont Distinguished Alumna Award, the Alumna Spirit of Service Award, and the Harpeth Hall/Ward-Belmont Athletic Hall of Fame. The recipients of these awards are leaders in their professional or athletic fields and serve as an example of all Harpeth Hall students and alumnae.
Whether it is your 5th or 65th Reunion, Harpeth Hall welcomes alumnae back to campus every five years for their Reunion. Join us for Reunion 2023 as we celebrate alumnae from the classes ending in 3s and 8s on May 5 - 6, 2023. All on campus events are complimentary and open to ALL alumnae, regardless of whether it's your Reunion year or not!
Meet the Alumnae Relations Team
Dear Harpeth Hall Alumnae,
I am honored to serve as Alumnae Board President for the 2022-2023 school year.
Harpeth Hall’s alumnae are the foundation of the Harpeth Hall community. For over 155 years, Harpeth Hall has been teaching girls to think critically, lead confidently, and live honorably. Today our alumnae community is over 5,500 members strong, living in 49 states plus Washington D.C. and in 26 countries. As alumnae, each of our experiences at Harpeth Hall was unique, but we are united in our commitment to the school that provided us with a world-class education and prepared us for our futures.
Last year Harpeth Hall celebrated many milestones. Examples include opening of the Bullard Bright IDEA Lab; claiming five state championships in track and field, soccer, cross country, riflery, and lacrosse; establishing the first all-girls scholastic ice hockey team in Tennessee; and formation of an Ethics Bowl team and robotics team, the BearBots. These accomplishments demonstrate how Harpeth Hall has evolved while still staying true to its mission.
I invite you to take part in our many, fantastic alumnae programming opportunities this year, including HHConnectHER, Career Day, Alumnae Book Club, Winterim for Adults, panels, and of course, Reunion 2023. These events provide valuable opportunities to connect with fellow alumnae while having a lasting impact on the Harpeth Hall community. Our continued engagement is essential to our alma mater’s future.
I look forward to working with you this year and please don’t hesitate to reach out with suggestions or ideas!
