You might call them trailblazers, disruptors, agents of change, or the first THIRTY-five.
We call them Raiders.
Fifty years ago, on February 15, 1971, then Headmaster Dr. Paul Chesebro, proposed a change of school policy to The Hun School Board of Trustees. Dr. Chesebro wanted to begin admitting girls, a move that would fortify enrollment and lead to a dramatic expansion of programming in the subsequent decade. Six months later, The Hun School’s first girls – thirty-five coeds across four grades – enrolled to create the largest student body the school had ever had.
Her at Hun is a year-long Celebration of 50 Years of Girls and Women at The Hun School. A full roster of anniversary events and programming aims to further enhance the girls’ experience at Hun, while honoring the paths of those who came before us.
Join the celebration by attending one of our events virtually or in person, reflecting on the female experience, or supporting Her at Hun philanthropically.
To all the women who have ever walked our halls, with Her at Hun, we thank you and we honor you.
