What a celebration! On November 1, HIPPY USA friends, supporters and current and former board members gathered to celebrate 30 years of impact! Local event co-chairs Kristie Hadden and Adam Kohler brought enthusiastic greetings, along with HUSA Board Chair Robin Frank and Development Committee Chair Dora Lipper. Our Clinton Presidential Center friend Ann Kamps, and Skip Rutherford, Dean of the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service, provided insightful historical facts about HIPPY's deep Arkansas roots.

The evening's highlights also included remarks from founding Executive Director Miriam Westheimer, as she thanked HIPPY USA for the endowment in her honor. This fund will support The Westheimer Rising Speaker Series and will be used to highlight rising speakers and lecturers in the field of home visiting and early education.

Annette Dove introduced this special video from Hillary Clinton before bringing a thoughtful keynote message to the guests, and Regina Black closed out our evening by sharing her moving HIPPY story! 

Building on the previous evening's momentum and excitement, former members of the HIPPY USA National Board of Trustees joined the current members for a reunion breakfast the following day to continue networking and strengthen strategies for long-term engagement.

Thank you to every individual who helped make this event a success!
