Danner Schmunk Riebe ’79, Alumna of the Year
Few people have contributed as much to The Hun School as Danner Schmunk Riebe ’79. She arrived at Hun just four years after the first girls were admitted, and among her many academic accolades, was the second girl elected president of Student Council, in 1978. If student leadership wasn't enough, she was also a pioneer on the athletic fields, persuading the administration to create the first Hun School girls’ lacrosse team. After college, she returned to work in Hun’s Admission Office and coach lacrosse before leaving to raise her family abroad. After returning stateside, Head of School Jonathon Brougham called to ask Mrs. Reibe to serve on the Board of Trustees, of which she has been a member for seven years. Her admiration for the School and her commitment to giving back led her to establish the Schmunk Family Scholarship, to help other students gain access to the Hun experience.
