From the Alumnae Association President Kendra Armer ’93

Change has been in the air at Scripps over this past summer. In mid-May, the Alumnae Association welcomed the Class of 2016 to our ranks, and in August the Class of 2020 arrived on campus. We also welcomed Lara Tiedens to Scripps as our ninth president, just in time to celebrate the College’s 90th year. And, now, I am so excited to follow in the footsteps of Libby Greig DeMeo ’95 as Alumnae Association president.

Spending this past year as president-elect has helped strengthen my connection with other alumnae and with the College. It has also reminded me what powerful mentors and leaders Scripps graduates are. We are leaders in our professions, our communities, and our institutions. This issue of the magazine highlights just some of the passion, commitment, and change that we bring to the world every day. I hope to connect with many of you during my term as Alumnae Association president and to hear more of your stories.

And let me know what I can do, and what the Alumnae Leadership Council can do, to help you get connected and stay connected to Scripps. What do you want us to know about the Scripps community and your experiences in it? Email me at or reach out to the Office of Alumnae Engagement at

Whether you attend a milestone reunion or a regional event, establish new relationships with other alumnae, or reconnect with a long-lost classmate this year, I hope you add your voice to our community.

Best wishes,

Kendra Armer ’93
