Jeannie Norris concludes her 16 year run as head of Miss Hall’s this coming June- just part of her thirty-three years spent in and advocating for girls education.

While passionate about the thinking and philosophy behind single gender education, Norris had very strong roots in the concrete.

During Norris’s 16 years, Miss Hall’s:

“built and renovated more than 40,000 sq. ft. of facilities, including the Elizabeth Gatchell Klein Art Center, the Humes Euston Hall Library, and the Anne Meyer Cross Athletic Center, and completed a master plan to guide future expansion;

Raised more than $55 million dollars through two major initiatives, the Centennial Campaign and the Go Far, Go Together Campaign, which was launched in October 2009 and is now $32 million toward its $50 million goal.”(MHS)

The foundation Norris has built is formidable and her Citation of Leadership Award from The Association of Boarding Schools is well deserved.

    Go Ms. Norris! Best Head of School EVER. Yes, she raised a lot of money and all of that but more importantly she touched the lives of the girls that she worked for. Myself included. We will never forget you!
