"Linden Hall has impacted all areas of my life – I am the person I am today because of this school. The role models I had equipped me to be a parent, the education prepared me for college and laid the foundation for my career, and the diverse friendships I have made and maintained have supported me through life's struggles and successes."
~Courtney Frankhouser Myers '93
"Linden Hall gave me the confidence and insight to navigate the challenges ahead and succeed in a global economy. Linden Hall was a defining experience that helped me find my voice and values. My part in the Linden Hall sisterhood transcends time, class and background. Each sister is brilliant in her own way, and I am so humbled to be part of this phenomenal group of women. We all shine with brilliance in our homes, the workplace and our communities. I love that I am part this fierce and fabulous sisterhood!"
~ Heather Lemmert Wilson '85
"I owe a lot to Linden Hall. Being there gave me the confidence boost I needed during adolescence. Professionally, I owe a lot to my experience, not only at Linden Hall, but also as an exchange student at Fukuoka Daiichi High School in Japan– an opportunity I was afforded through Linden Hall. It was that experience that made me want to work as a Diplomat, and I am well on my way to achieving that goal."
~Andrea Perego '00
"The experience of going to Linden Hall shaped my life. It was my first experience where I was judged for who I am, instead of what I am (female, member of X family, etc). It was the first time I was surrounded by people who believed I could accomplish anything I put my mind to."
~ Margaret (Becky) Carpenter Melton '67
