Tinker Day goes global
On campus, students headed up the mountain after fueling up on donuts and coffee, but they weren’t the only ones celebrating. Alumnae from cities around the country and around the world gathered to commemorate Hollins’ favorite tradition.

Leadership summit brings alumnae to campus
The third Boyce Lineberger Ansley ’68 Leadership Summit kicked off a late-September weekend of connecting and collaborating. Alumnae across six decades came together to connect, learn from each other, and share ways to serve and lead in their communities and at Hollins.
The summit was named in memory of Boyce Lineberger Ansley, a recipient of Hollins’ Distinguished Service Award. Ansley was a committed volunteer on behalf of Hollins and also in her hometown of Atlanta. Weaving together both leadership and volunteering, the theme of the September summit was “Designing a Life of Consequence.”
Participants enjoyed a state of the university address from President Lawrence, an inspiring keynote address from Debbie Meade, a member of the Board of Trustees, and an afternoon of sessions designed to help them continue to build a life of consequence.
Attendees called the day energizing, inclusive, and inspiring, noting that the best part was meeting and connecting with other alumnae.
