INTRODUCTION

The impact on a girl’s future when she is exposed to a mentor is unparalleled. At this juncture in their development and in their lives, it is critical for girls to be encouraged by leaders, having experience in “real world” settings as they seek to discover their unique interests. As we say: “Girls have to see it to be it.”

Jacqueline L. Landry, Head of School
