Alumnae Association Board

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 elacroix@hnhsoakland.org
