Faculty members at PoCC worked through the topic of “Elevating our Worth, Our Agency, and Our Excellence.” The event provided Porter-Gaud faculty a space to learn, collaborate, and support one another as we continue to nurture a sense of belonging for the entire school community.
Our students and faculty were among 7,800 students and adults who attended the conferences from across the United States and 11 additional countries.

“I look with envy now on the diversity of sports, academic, and community programs women can choose from at PG. We broke the ice.”
Dr. Kathy Heinsohn (’80) entered the 8th grade at Porter-Gaud with fifteen other girls. Though she was scared at first, they were warmly welcomed by their male classmates, and the group bonded as a whole and remain friends to this day.
The first girls were quickly recruited to athletics. “If you were tall, as I was, you were automatically recruited to play basketball on a JV girls team in 8th grade. I had never played before, many of us had not, but I became known as ‘Tree,’ the center for the Lady Cyclones.”
Dr. Heinsohn currently resides in Maryland and is a Ph.D. Entomologist with American Pest.
This weekend, you won't want to miss our US Performing Arts students starring in "An Evening of One Acts"! Saturday night's show will begin at 7pm and Sunday's start time is 3pm. Both shows will be in Gwynette Auditorium.
