The Communications Committee of the Alumnae Association is excited to announce the launch of three social media projects. Over the next three months, we will be introducing an interactive map, a social meme that will let the world know you’re a proud GFS graduate, and a monthly spotlight of an alum.

“Where in the World” will add a visual highlight to a fact that every alum knows; Girls High Girls are everywhere!!! This interactive map will show our sisters far and close.

Another project is a meme that with the theme “I’m a Girls High Girl…” When you see it, please add your special memories of what makes you a Girls’ High Girl.

Our last social media project unfolds in two parts; the first will be a contest to name the initiative. The winner receives a gift card for two. The Court of Distinguished Daughters is a much anticipated bi-annual celebration of those graduates who have reached the summit of their fields of endeavor. Lisa Aversa Richette, Gloria Allred, Judith Rodin and Jessie Redmond Fausett, to name a few, are representative of those who have achieved success in a variety of disciplines. Law, Politics, Education and the Arts; there is not a field that a Girls’ High girl has not conquered.

We would like to introduce a new monthly feature to our website and Facebook pages. Each month we will feature an alumna who is making a difference in her community, at her place of work or house of worship. In short, we are looking for those Unsung Sisters. I open the challenge for the perfect name for our campaign. Please email me at with your ideas/suggestions. When the contest closes at the end of August, I will compile all the suggestions, and we’ll have an old-fashioned, democratic vote!!! The winner will receive dinner for two.

During this time, we are also seeking nominees for our “unsung sisters”. Please feel free to email nominations. I look forward to reading (and sharing) your email suggestions.

On your mark, get set, GO!! Have a continued happy and safe summer!
