Valle, Maria

Maria Valle ’12 facilitated San Jose's second annual leadership conference for young women in the spring. The theme was "Strong Girls, Strong Women."

About 260 high school girls, their mothers, and grandmothers attended the conference at the Mexican Heritage Plaza. Organized by the American Association of University Women and the Santa Clara County Office of Women's Policy, the meeting featured a series of panel discussions on economic, educational, and health equity for women—as well as discussions on crime and violence.
 
The week before the conference, Valle had taken a group of Andrew Hill students to Sacramento to lobby for health care for all and funding for schools. Valle is a secretary at Our Lady of Grace Nativity School.

Henninger, Bianca
The Houston Dash have acquired goalkeeper Bianca Henninger ’12 from FC Kansas City in exchange for the team’s third-round selection in the 2014 NWSL college draft, the team announced in January.
 
Henninger, recently on loan with FC Bayern Munich of Germany’s Frauen-Bundesliga, played four years at Santa Clara University before being selected by the Philadelphia Independence of the now-defunct WPS in 2011.
 
Henninger, 23, also played with the New York Fury of the WPSL Elite before being drafted by FC Kansas City in early 2013.
 
The Los Gatos, Calif. native was also a member of the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup championship team and played in all 5 games for the Gold-Medal winning U.S. team in the 2010 CONCACAF U20 World Cup qualifying tournament.
 
“We made a great trade in solidifying our goalkeeping needs,” Dash head coach Randy Waldrum said. “Bianca played for me with our U-23's, and she is one of the best young US goalkeepers out there.”
