*Given every year since graduation according to our Annual Fund records which begin in 1989
The Edna Heft ’32 Society recognizes all donors who have given consecutively to McGehee’s Annual Fund for ten or more years. 

Edna Heft ’32 gave loyally to McGehee’s from the time of her graduation until the time of her death. Just as Edna’s enthusiasm for McGehee’s was unrestricted so were the gifts that she gave to the school, culminating in a monumental $1,000,000 gift from her estate.  We are proud to name this important society after such a steadfast supporter of the school.

To the left you will find a list of all members of the Edna Heft ’32 Society.  This list will be published in our publications and on our website.  Membership in this society demonstrates an unwavering belief in what we do every day to care for and educate the leading women that pass through our gates.

Jessica Henricksen, Director of College Counseling

The moment I stepped onto this campus, over twenty years ago as a young English teacher, I felt the liberating power of Louise S. McGehee’s mission.  To this day I still can’t help but want to rewrite my own girlhood, imagining myself maturing in this environment and the character-strengths I might’ve have exercised earlier had I grown up with mentors, teachers, and coaches like the ones I proudly call my colleagues. This is a special place. Its mission to support and empower each girl is fully realized every day, and it’s a privilege to be apart of this daily celebration. That is why I give--and will always give--to McGehee.
