Alumnae Bright Spots and Resources
During this time of uncertainty, we wish to be a positive and inspirational channel for our alumnae. Are you or someone you know doing something uplifting? We want to hear from you! Please email your stories to Whatley Hamilton at email@example.com. We are so proud of our alumnae who are volunteering, working in public health/medical fields, teaching from home, caregiving, etc. We are also interested in stories about how alumnae are currently spending their time while social distancing. Use #HoneybearsatHome to stay up to date with Harpeth Hall students, faculty, and alumnae. Click here to see Harpeth Hall's social media feed. Below are just a few ways Harpeth Hall alumnae are lifting up the minds and spirits of others.
