The Hutchison Distinguished Alumna Award recognizes and celebrates alumnae who are making a difference in the world through exceptional professional achievement, singular artistic creation, and selfless and visionary service. Throughout her career, Susan Springfield ‘82 has often been one of only a few women at the table. She wants to change that. Though modest about her professional accomplishments, Susan does not hesitate to wield her considerable professional influence to effect change and benefit the women who follow her. She has been recognized nationally and locally for implementing changes to improve women’s opportunities and lives through her role as Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Credit Officer at First Horizon Bank and her tireless community engagement, including her work for victims of domestic violence. A former Hutchison trustee and member of the Alumnae Association Board, she and her fellow Class of 1982 graduates created a scholarship dedicated to financial assistance. Susan’s laser focus on creating opportunities for women and girls is a tremendous community asset.
Alumna Service to Hutchison Award
Robyn McGee Raby '88
The Alumna Service to Hutchison Award recognizes the school's appreciation for exceptional and longstanding service to and advocacy for Hutchison. When Robyn McGee Raby ’88 graduated and was headed to the University of Alabama, she was ready to embark on her new adventure. She says Hutchison was clearly in her rearview mirror, and she did not think she would be back anytime soon. Thankfully for us, she did return and has been an engaged community member since. As a parent to five Hutchison girls, four alumnae, and one in middle school, Robyn is an active and engaged advocate for students and alumnae. She has served multiple leadership roles on the Alumnae Association Board and is always ready to assist with anything from hosting a class gathering to tracking down outdated information on alumnae. Robyn always brings a fresh perspective and adds excitement to any project. Her energy and upbeat attitude are inspiring. As a mother, a friend, and a colleague she is a role model to us all.
