Thank you to all the Reunion 2014 alumnae who contributed to your class gift!
The first major gift to Hollins was $5,000 from John and Ann Halsey Hollins of Lynchburg in 1855. In gratitude, the trustrees changed the name of the school to Hollins Institute. Ann Halsey and her husband made the generous gift because they shared Charles Lewis Cocke's belief that young women had as much right to an education as did their brothers.
Where would Hollins be today without the foresight and generosity of the Hollins' in 1855?
Hollins today needs your support — to continue a tradition of excellence in educating young women.
President Gray and Hollins trustees joined members of The 1842 Society and Miss Matty's Circle for our annual weekend for leadership donors. More than 100 alumnae and friends enjoyed a big Texas weekend with Hollins flair.
