Middle and upper school girls participated in the 2019 World Language Fair at The University of Memphis where they demonstrated their knowledge of world languages and cultures along with more than 1,000 high school students in the Memphis area.
During her senior year at Hutchison, Brittany Trimble ’08 started charting her course. She emailed a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force and said something along the lines of: “I hear you’re a fighter pilot, and I would like to be one. Please help me.”
Trimble admitted her note was a bit more formal than that. But that was the gist.
It might seem simple: you’re a writer and have published three novels of a successful series. They feature a southern heroine named Leelee who finds herself in all kinds of crazy situations. The stories are funny, touching, and popular; people love the character. The titles themselves sell the books: Whistlin’ Dixie in a Nor’easter, Yankee Doodle Dixie, and Southern as a Second Language.
The Class of 1982 truly demonstrates the meaning of “better together.” This year, the Class of 2019 chose the phrase Better Together as Hutchison’s school-wide theme. Despite being separated by more than 35 years, both classes know that strong bonds are part of the Hutchison ethos.
Learning is a lifelong pursuit. These teachers practice what they preach.
What if teachers could make math more hands-on for girls, so that they truly understand numbers and shapes, instead of just memorizing formulas? What if a shy girl could be suddenly emboldened by her classmates’ positive responses to her unique “video book trailer?” What if the practice of adjusting a person’s mindset could be put to use in the classroom to open up new possibilities for students?
