Introducing Three New Social Media Projects

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!
