From the President...
Welcome! The Wellesley-in-Westchester Alumnae Club has a simple purpose: to support the College through the fostering of connections among alumnae in our local geographic area.
When Wellesley College alumnae in Westchester connect with our Wellesley neighbors, our community becomes stronger. We are enriched in each other's company; we benefit from sharing our common or wide-ranging interests, and from exchanging ideas as we continue to stretch and learn when we participate in local alumnae programs, excursions and informal gatherings. We serve the community in which we live by engaging in local volunteer opportunities throughout the year and when we provide direct support to the College, through local alumnae admissions interviews, visits to area college fairs, and when we contribute to scholarships which provide financial aid to local students attending Wellesley. Additionally, by contributing to the book award program, we are able to recognize more than 50 local high school girls each year for their academic achievement and service to the community.
As President of Wellesley-in-Westchester, and on behalf of the rest of our Board, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our local landing page, designed to help alumnae make connections right here in Westchester. Here you will find links to the College's web site, information about upcoming activities, a list of governing board members from a diversity of class decades and towns, and an archive of past newsletters. From time to time, we’ll share news of local alumnae, women making a mark on our world.
If you haven’t already, make sure to update your email address with the college to receive notices of upcoming Westchester gatherings throughout the year. If you are interested in volunteering or if you have ideas you'd like to share, please let us know. Email us at WCWestchester@alum.wellesley.edu, or write to our local Membership Co-Chairs, Kathleen Prystowsky '07 or Margaret Prystowsky Rogers '04.
To keep informed, become a member if you aren't already one today or reference our Events calendar above. I hope to see you at an upcoming event this year!
