President's Welcome


It is such a privilege to have been elected President of our Alumnae Executive. ​Once a Millie, Always a Millie ​is a phrase I have proudly embodied since graduating in 2008. SMLS has always held a special place in my life, and I have stayed committed to giving back to the school as a mentor, alumnae executive volunteer, and donor. As I transition from my role on the Alumnae Executive as VP, Events to President, I hope to apply and nurture the skills and relationships I’ve developed over the last 16 years as a Millie.
Our goal as your Alumnae Executive is to connect you with the international network of SMLS alumnae, and to create programming that provides opportunities for you to benefit from both professionally and personally. Whether you’re joining us for a virtual Speaker Series, or attending our annual Alumnae Brunch, I appreciate your contribution to our Alumnae community and will continue to work hard to keep us all connected - even if it looks a little different this year!
As always, I encourage you to submit your exciting news and updates - we love celebrating your milestones and achievements as a community! Remember to update your information on SMLS Alumnae Connect, and to stay informed by following us on your preferred social media channel. I always enjoy getting to know members of our alumnae community, so please do not hesitate to ​contact me directly​ if you have any questions, or want to get to know me a bit better. I’m always available for a virtual tea date until we’re able to meet again in person!
Wishing you all a safe and wonderful year ahead.
- Your Alumnae Executive President, Bisma Bhatti ‘08
