Hillary Dixon BA ’99

L&C Alumni Leadership Award (for service to L&C alumni)

Hillary was an English major at L&C who worked on the student produced literary magazine, the Literature Review. Hillary interned for the British Museum and Bloomsbury Publishing and went on to complete her MA in English from Boston University. Later Hillary would begin her work in social services, focusing on survivors of domestic violence. She initially worked on the crisis hotline for Call to Safety and most recently at the Gateway Center for Domestic Violence Services. She feels enormously privileged to have had a Lewis & Clark education and has helped to create an annual English student scholarship. Interested in volunteering her time, Hillary joined the Board of Alumni in the fall of 2012. During her eight-year tenure on the board, she served in many capacities, including president.
