Ashley Hall is thrilled to celebrate the life and work of distinguished alumna, Madeleine L’Engle Camp Franklin, class of 1937. L’Engle attended Ashley Hall as a boarding student beginning in 1933 and went on to write the award-winning novel A Wrinkle in Time. Known to her readers as Madeleine L’Engle, her book, A Wrinkle in Time, went on to win the Newbery Award in 1962. This year marks the centennial of L’Engle’s birth as well as a the exciting release of a new major motion picture by Disney of her beloved story, A Wrinkle in Time. We are proud of this Ashley Hall girl.

We were thrilled to have alumna and former First Lady Barbara Pierce Bush ’43 visit campus on February 17. During a special assembly held in her honor, students, faculty and staff, and Board of Trustee members enjoyed hearing Mrs. Bush regale fondly of her time at Ashley Hall where she served as captain of the Purples and also played the role of the speaking angel in the school’s annual Christmas Play. Exuding her signature warmth and wit, Mrs. Bush graciously answered numerous questions from the students covering both political and personal areas of interest. Head of School Jill Muti closed the program by honoring Mrs. Bush with the Distinguished Alumnae Award and an Ashley Hall Alumnae pin which she wore proudly throughout the rest of the day.
