Harvardwood was honored to receive the Harvard Alumni Association's annual award for Outstanding Club & Shared Interest Group Contribution, in recognition of exceptional efforts resulting in outstanding and innovative programming.
Officially founded in 1999 by Mia Riverton Alpert AB '99, Stacy Cohen AB '89, and Adam Fratto AB '90, Harvardwood is especially excited to receive this HAA award during the celebration of our 20th anniversary. Today, Harvardwood runs on the volunteer manpower of President Allison Kiessling Ed.M. '05 and our Board of Directors.
The award was presented to Harvardwood at the 2019 Alumni Leadership Conference awards dinner, and Executive Director D. Dona Le AB '05 was in attendance to accept the award on behalf of Harvardwood.
We share this honor with all of the hardworking, dedicated Harvardwood Board of Directors, Chapter Heads, and volunteers who keep our programs thriving. In addition, the vibrant and nurturing Harvardwood community we've built would not be possiblew without the passion and participation of all of our members and supporters.
Harvardwood is deeply grateful to the University and the Harvard Alumni Association for their longstanding support of our organization. We are thrilled to be a part of the HAA community, among all the other Shared Interest Groups and local Harvard alumni clubs worldwide! We thank the HAA for this great honor, and we look forward to many more years of collaboration on such invaluable programs as Global Networking Night and the annual Speakers Bureau program.
Finally, Harvardwood recognizes HAA Executive Director Philip W. Lovejoy and the team of HAA staff members who work tirelessly on campus and travel to Harvard Clubs/SIGs near and far to strengthen Harvard connections beyond campus.
