Meet the Heathwood Hall Alumni Council. The purpose of the Alumni Council is to help classmates stay connected to each other and Heathwood Hall.  The Council encourages participation in key school and alumni events, serves as the communication liaison for exciting news, contact updates, and life events, and brings awareness to opportunities for alumni to support the school with their time, talent, and treasure.
