Alumnae Information & Updates

As an alumna, your Holy Names experience doesn’t last for just four years, it lasts a lifetime, forever…. The primary purpose shall be to unite all graduates through the Alumnae Association and to encourage them to continue to practice and promote the mission of Holy Names High School. A secondary aspiration is to sustain, support, and strengthen the welfare and best interests of Holy Names High School and the students.

Class Representatives

Class Representatives serve the critical role of being the primary contact for their classmates. HNHS works closely with class reps to help promote alumnae events, such as Homecoming, and invites them to be involved with fundraising events as well, such as Fund Her Future and Boots & BBQ. Class Reps may help to organize aspects of their class reunions, and can request and update classmate contact information with the school. Class Reps are welcome and encouraged to attend Alumnae Association meetings (5-6 per year) when possible, so they can contribute to alumnae events and represent their classmates.
If you’d like to explore the possibility of being a representative, please connect with Emily Lacroix at [email protected] or 510.450.1110, ext. 138.

The Holy Names High School Alumnae Association is an inclusive community of women who value the personal and educational growth Holy Names provided them. The Association nurtures relationships between alumnae and strengthens the bond between alumnae and the school to ensure future generations of young women flourish. Through alumnae events, fundraisers, and volunteer opportunities, the Association engages past, present, and future students to support a culture of empowered women serving our communities.
Every graduate of HNHS is welcome to participate in the Alumnae Association! The group gathers every other month during the school year in the Social Hall for an evening meeting (about 5 times per year). Alumnae work closely with HNHS staff to support the school by attending school fundraising events, promoting the school in the community, being a resource to current students, and more.
A volunteer leadership team (selected by alumnae) keeps the group organized and helps to set goals each year. The leadership team volunteers their time and expertise to support our larger network and we're tremendously grateful for their service. Please meet our 2019-20 leadership team!
If you are interested in joining the leadership team, please contact Emily Lacroix, Executive Development Director at [email protected]
