Back when we were planning our 50th reunion (can we remember back that far?) we asked everyone to please send us their memories of Mount Holyoke. Back then everyone cooperated and actually did it. Not all of them could go into our presentation or our book but now on our website we have unlimited space so we thought we should share some more of these
Our latest memory comes from
Barbara Gates Johnson
Others are from Deb Hazzard Nash,
Gay Hartman, and Pat O'Keeffe,Barbara Muehrcke Allen, et al.
We hope that these entries will
inspire you to think of some of your memories to share with our class.

6 COLLEGE PRESIDENTS SPEAK OUT ON DOBBS
Including our own Sonya Stephens!
Trisha Tanner ’00 named executive director of the
Alumnae Association of Mount Holyoke College
The Board of Directors of the Alumnae Association has named Trisha Tanner ’00 as the next executive director of the Alumnae Association of Mount Holyoke College. Tanner, who currently serves as the vice president of development and interim director of communications at Central European University (CEU) in Vienna, Austria, will start as the executive director on September 1. The board offered Tanner the position after an extensive international search led by the executive search firm Isaacson, Miller and a hiring committee with the involvement from several active volunteers from across the globe, as well as key stakeholders from the College and the Alumnae Association.
“The moment I stepped through the College gates as a prospective student, I was struck by the power of the uncommon minds who came before me,” said Tanner, reflecting on what brings her to serve as an ambassador and advocate for MHC alums. “The Mount Holyoke bond has shaped my life ever since — with alums across generations supporting each other in countless ways. Today, we are doing so in troubling times, as we face conflict, the climate crisis, and the rollback of rights and freedoms around the world. Our dynamic global community is a powerful counterpoint to such challenges, so I am especially honored to be selected to serve and engage all of you now.”
Before joining CEU, Tanner was director of private sector initiatives at the International Crisis Group, a Brussels-based NGO dedicated to the prevention and resolution of deadly conflict. Prior to this, she spent a decade in the arts as a fundraiser, communications specialist and educator, including work in external relations and development at Artpace, a global artist residency program. In all of Tanner’s professional roles, she brings a deep understanding of how to connect and engage diverse constituents. She has worked to create and support contemporary, mission-aligned programs while empowering key stakeholders and volunteers to advance the critical work of their organizations. We are excited for the opportunity for her to bring this expertise to the Alumnae Association.
Tanner, who graduated from Mount Holyoke with a major in critical social thought and a minor in studio art, has a long history of involvement with the Alumnae Association. She has volunteered in various capacities for more than 20 years, including serving as her class president, a member of the Clubs Committee and co-president of the Mount Holyoke Club of San Antonio. Her dedication was honored in 2015 when she received the Young Alum Volunteer Leadership Award in recognition of her “organizational strengths, initiative, enthusiasm and energy” and for offering diverse activities “designed to appeal to the different aspects of our community.”
“Trisha is a strong strategic thinker and a believer in the power of digital engagement to expand reach and affinity. We are excited to have her leadership as we continue the important strategic planning work started this year,” said Alumnae Association President Ellen Hyde Pace ’81. Tanner and her family will be relocating to the Pioneer Valley in September.
