On February 2, the South Jersey Observer covered 10 Purnell School students' participation in Empowering Female Voices: President's First 100 Days, a national virtual event sponsored by the National Coalition of Girls' Schools.

Purnell School, the only college preparatory boarding and day school for motivated girls who learn differently, announced 10 student delegates are participating in Empowering Female Voices: President's First 100 Days, a national virtual event sponsored by the National Coalition of Girls' Schools, the Close Up Foundation and the Hockaday Institute for Social Impact.

Taking place weekly from January 26, 2021 through March 2, 2021, the conference commemorates the recent 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted American women the right to vote, the election of the nation's first female vice president, and a record number of women in Congress in 2021.

"I am proud our young women have the opportunity to engage with other students from across the country in such meaningful dialogue, staying active and involved after a consequential election year," said Anne M. Glass, Ed.M., head of school, Purnell School. "As we prepare the next generation of female leaders, we strive to provide opportunities for our students to collaborate and address current challenges with their peers at other schools."
