As you navigate the unique challenges of attending college during a pandemic, our College Counseling team reminds you that we are here for you. Whether you are concerned about the impact this semester will have on your grades or credits, considering transferring, or would like general counsel regarding your college experience, our team is available to support you. Please feel free to reach out to Ms. Amanda Henry or Mrs. Barbara Sams at collegecounseling@whitfieldschool.org if we can be of assistance.

Alumni Programming: 2020-21

Laura Lotz, Class of 1995, Director of Alumni Relations

We are thrilled to announce that Laura Lotz ’95 will play a leading role in the Alumni Relations program again this year.  Laura has been a fixture at Whitfield as an alumna and veteran of the English faculty.  While she will continue as a full-time faculty member this year, when serving as acting director of alumni relations, she draws upon her institutional knowledge and commitment to Whitfield’s school community. 

"As we work to build a strong program foundation, I am excited to highlight the stories of our amazing alumni, reconnect alumni with current faculty and students, and create a memorable Reunion and Athletic Hall of Fame Induction in the spring," shares Lotz.

Just as many aspects of this world and our school environment are different this year, so, too, is our alumni program. While we will not be able to host events for the foreseeable future, some things remain unchanged. We remain committed to continuous communication, to sharing school news and celebrating the achievements of our alumni. We remain committed to laying a strong programmatic foundation--that includes opportunities for volunteering, enrichment and socializing--that is ready to launch when we can all be together again. We remain committed to supporting our alumni when they reach out in need of contacts, references, or to connect with old friends.

Please continue to send us your News & Notes, and to save the date for Reunion + Athletic Hall of Fame Induction: May 14-15, 2021. Email alumni@whitfieldschool.org to connect!
