Schools were always a warm place of comfort for Grace during her childhood. She thrived under the care and attention of her teachers who always made her feel seen and understood. Because of her own experiences, Grace feels a special affinity for the Small Learning Community model at Hillsdale High School. She understands how important it is that kids feel special on an individual basis, surrounded by adults that care about them. Grace enjoys her work on the Hillsdale Foundation Board, helping to build community at the school and raise resources to support the needs of all the students. Grace and her husband Chad have two children, Sean (HHS Class of ’26) and Claire (HHS Class of ’30).
