Message from Liz Lee ’02
President, Alumnae Association
It was here that I learned to question, analyze, evaluate, and turn knowledge into action.
As a proud member of the Class of 2002, I am so excited to be the incoming president of the Alumnae Association.
As a first-generation college student raised in a scrappy immigrant family, I walked onto campus in 1998 with the desire to learn. What I didn’t know then was that I would also be joining an intellectual community of diverse thinkers, doers, and leaders. It was here that I learned to question, analyze, evaluate, and turn that knowledge into action. In the almost 20 years since graduation, these critical thinking skills have led me to opportunities in law and policy, as well as a dedication to volunteering and serving in various communities. As I step into this role as president, I recognize that I stand on the shoulders of generations of leaders that came before me. Over the past year, I’ve had the privilege of learning from our outgoing president, Juanita Nash-Dahlen ’72. As my mentor, Juanita has taught me the value of creativity, resilience, and always seeing the positive potential in challenging situations. With these lessons fresh in mind, I am optimistic and excited to work with the College and the Alumnae Leadership Council as we endeavor to strengthen our community while tackling a global pandemic and political, social, and economic upheaval and adjusting to a “new normal” in hybrid in-person and remote opportunities in our school, work, and personal lives. In light of these challenges, the need is great for our collective critical thinking skills as we come together to work toward solutions.
I’ve seen the Alumnae Leadership Council step up to engage and bring together voices, skills, and resources from our talented alumnae, and I hope to encourage this trend. You can reach me at email@example.com or email the Office of Alumnae Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our voices and our experiences are diverse, and I welcome the opportunity to hear your ideas for further engagement with the College and other alumnae, as well as your vision for the future of our Scripps community.
