Hannah Platt ’08: Advancement

Isabel Llevat

Hannah Platt ’08 is the newest addition to the Advancement Team as the Assistant Director of Alumni Relations at the Middle School.

For three years, Platt has been the Program and Outreach Director at Camp Ramah. There, she was in charge of the mental and physical safety of 350 staff members ages ranging from 17-72, as well as 1400 campers from grades three through 11.

In addition to a year-round programming camp, she oversaw the planning of summer programs like field trips, camp-based events and overnight camping trips. Platt was also in charge of overseeing staff events such as group bonding exercises and training camps.

Platt is a cum laude graduate of the University of Pennsylvania. She earned her bachelor’s degree with a major in Sociology and a minor in Art History.

“I am very excited to be a part of the Harvard-Westlake community,” Platt said. “I think touching upon an alumni community brings a lot of new, cool things to a job rather than working with the current population as well as in a school setting. My favorite thing about my job is bringing people together and reconnecting them to the community they grew up in.”
