Schall of Oglethorpe University and Elizabeth Kiss of Agnes Scott College (both in Atlanta, Georgia).

President Huntington has also added her name as signatory on a letter to President Obama from college and university presidents which pledges support in response to his call at the Sandy Hook memorial service call to do everything in our power to prevent more tragedies like this. In the letter, the higher education community pledges to "do what we do best in our academic communities: engage thoughtful leaders, faculty, students, staff, Trustees and friends in meaningful debate and dialogue, which, in turn, might lead to positive action."
