This year the Hackley community enjoyed a wonderful visit from parent David Einhorn who delivered our Bruce C. Forbes Lecturer for 2015. The purpose of this Lecture Series is to introduce Hackley students to speakers who will address important issues of history, politics, culture, and public policy. It was established in 1989 by Malcolm S. Forbes '37 in honor of his brother Bruce, Hackley Class of 1935. Previous speakers have included Thomas R. Casten, Steve Forbes, Donald P. Gregg, Rabbi Brad Hirschfield, Joe Klein '64, William Kristol, Dr. Arthur B. Laffer, Douglas H. Lasdon ’73, Ralph Nader, Barack Obama, Henry Wendt '51, and Howard Zinn.

Lohud this week reported:"Hackley’s Sammy M. has been on a tear since the start of the season, and is a key reason for the Hornets’ strong start. The junior midfielder scored her 100th career goal for the Hornets during a 14-5 win over Fieldston. On the week, [she] totaled 15 goals and seven assists in three games, leading Hackley to a perfect week, including a six-goal, two-assist performance in her milestone game."
