This year's 25th Reunion speaker, Julia Hobson Haggerty '90, spoke about the parallels between her study of community resilience in rural locations and the lessons she learned at Winsor: a strong sense of place, women working together and women with voices.
As this year's 50th Reunion speaker, Kate Merritt '65 shared memories of growing up during the 1950s and 1960s, "part of the generation who watched giant cracks appear in the old rules and the old assumptions." At school, Kate reflected, "Winsor told us we were first-class – not second-class – citizens," and prepared girls for a world that didn't exist yet.
As Persis Gleason Laverack '45 celebrated her 70th reunion, Winsor celebrated her as the 2015 recipient of the Julia Lyman Simond '17 Prize. Head of School Rachel Friis Stettler presented her with the honor at Alumnae Weekend.

The 2015 Annual Meeting of the Winsor Corporation reunited many of the school's most loyal and ardent supporters. Images capture the joy of the evening as well as the excitement of tours of the new Lubin-O'Donnell Center offered prior to the event.
