From the Scripps Parent Leadership Council Co-Chairs

It is our honor to serve the Scripps community as the new co-chairs of the Parent Leadership Council.

As parents of both an alumna and a first-year student, we see Scripps as a family affair. This past May, we proudly watched our eldest daughter, Izzy, graduate with the Class of 2019. During Izzy’s time at Scripps, we were delighted to see her grow intellectually, discover new passions, and develop an abiding confidence that we know will serve her well as she launches into life after college. We couldn’t be happier that our younger daughter, Emily, is continuing our family legacy at Scripps as a member of the Class of 2023. It will be a joy to watch her grow and flourish at Scripps, as well.

As we begin our new role, we express our sincere gratitude to Michele-Anne and H. Mac Riley P’18, who energetically served as co-chairs before us. Under their leadership, parent and family involvement at Scripps deepened considerably, and we intend to continue building on their efforts. With your help, in the coming years we aim to expand the number of local and regional gatherings, deepen the College’s network of active volunteers, and expand participation in the Parent Leadership Council. There are many opportunities for families to get involved, whether by hosting events, opening your networks to students and alumnae, or engaging in philanthropy. Your participation, in any capacity, creates an even more exceptional experience for our students.

Please feel free to call on us with your questions and share your ideas for family involvement at Scripps. With a deep love and appreciation for the Scripps community in our hearts, we look forward to walking this path alongside you in the coming years.


Marie and Jamie Crouch P’19, P’23
