We would like to thank our board members, event hostesses and coordinators, and other volunteers for their generous donations of time, talents, and hospitality during the past year. Sara Biyabani, Mindy Chu, Linda Cooperman, Marylou Cronin, Laurie Daniels, Jean Davidson, Sidnie Davis, Nancy Hawes, Melanie Herscher, Adia Hoag, Stannie Holt, Jennifer Bock Hughes, Lori Kahn, Felice Kong, Diana McDonough, Sherry Palacios, Erika Rodriguez, Margaret Rushing, Laura Selznick, Sally Smith, Nisha Thatte-Potter, Isabel Walker, and Michelle Wu all helped make this a fun year for our members. They have enabled the Club to thrive and supported deeper connections among Smith alumnae throughout the Peninsula. We know that many nonprofit organizations compete for your volunteer hours and hospitality, and we are very grateful that you chose to support our Club!
Admissions’ recruiting is one of the most important efforts the Club makes on behalf of Smith. It takes many volunteers to interview and follow up with prospective students, host college fair booths, host or attend our recruiting events, and sponsor book awards. Special thanks go to the following alumnae who helped in one or more of these ways: Lesli Agcaoili, Mindy Chu, Marylou Cronin, Sidnie Davis, Cara Dodge, Donna Dong, Nancy Erba, Katie Gabel, Melanie Herscher, Adia Hoag, Lori Kahn, Hanna Lauritzen, Julia Wells Moran, Aisha Piracha-Zakariya, Erika Rodriguez, Margaret Rushing, Uzuri Sims, Jane Su, Florina Voica, and Hope Wu.
We also thank current Smithies Tiphanie Chow, Morgan Dolmatch, Jessica Feinberg, and Emily Jiaqian Zhou for taking the time to attend Club recruiting events and share their college experiences with prospective students and their parents. Their up-to-date information is very helpful in the admissions process!
