Honoring Retiring Hilltoppers: Gena Eggert
Assistant to the Director of Admissions Gena Eggert will be retiring after working at Hopkins for fourteen years.
As part of the Admissions Office, she oversaw “all aspects of the admission process,” including but not limited to: processing application materials, scheduling interviews, and coordinating mailings and events. One of Eggert’s favorite memories on The Hill is the 350th celebration of Hopkins School. Eggert will miss the camaraderie she enjoyed with her office mates, who “all had lots of stories to share about [each other's] lives and things that happen in the Admissions Office.” Looking forward to moving to a warmer climate, Eggert hopes to "get out more and explore new areas" with her dog, and engage in volunteer work at animal rescue organizations. Her favorite item on her desk was a hand-painted rock, given to her by a former student: something she plans on taking home with her to her life beyond The Hill.
