Alice Dixon ’82 named Alumnae Board president

The Sweet Briar Board of Directors has named one of its members, Alice Dixon ’82, to serve as president of the board of the Alumnae Association. Dixon also chairs the board’s Alumnae Committee.

A native of Charlotte, N.C., Dixon followed her undergraduate degree in biology from Sweet Briar with a Master of Humanities from the University of Richmond. After working in the pharmaceutical industry in Richmond, she went into the residential mortgage lending field, where she earned the Certified Professional Mortgage Specialist designation.

“Proving that a graduate with a liberal arts degree can do anything,” Dixon says, she decided that teaching is her true passion, and is now a chemistry teacher at the Collegiate School in Richmond.

While at Sweet Briar, Dixon served as Student Government Association president, junior class president and freshman class president. In her sophomore year, she was on the Judicial Committee. Dixon was a QV and an Earphone, and played field hockey, basketball and lacrosse all four years. She was named in the 1982 edition of Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities.

In her community, Dixon has been active with her church and was a longtime member of the Junior League board, and a member of its executive committee. Dixon also was very active in the Richmond chapter of the Sweet Briar Alumnae Association, serving as the club’s president for a number of years.
