In 2021, the Office of Alumnae Relations mailed back-to-school packets to teachers, librarians, school counselors, administrators, professors, and other educators as they prepared to start a new school or academic year. The response was so overwhelming from alumnae that the project was repeated this year.
The envelope contains a few Meredith items for the teachers to display. In addition to showing the College’s support of teachers, it is a great way for educators to promote Meredith College to their students.
More than 550 alumnae pre-registered for a back-to-school packet. Alumnae Relations is continuing to mail packets to additional alumnae educators. The mailing was sent to alumnae representing 47 different class years and living in 21 states and two countries.
“Not only is this a great way to thank educators for the work they do in shaping hearts and minds, but it’s a great way to provide them some Meredith items for their classrooms and offices,” said Hilary Allen, ʼ01, director of alumnae relations.
The Alumnae Office has received positive feedback from alumnae educators, who have expressed appreciation for the items and admissions information via the Alumnae Facebook group.
