The Saint Andrew’s Society of San Francisco proudly welcomes our incoming President, Francesca McCrossan. Francesca is the first female President in the Society’s storied 177 history, as well as an active and energetic member since 2012. Having lived in both Glasgow and the Bay Area, Francesca is well qualified for her leadership role of our Society which bridges our local members with our cultural and philanthropic efforts in Scotland. Francesca earned a BA in English Language, Literature and Letters from Berkeley as well as a PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in Folklore and Folk Life, both of which inform her participation in, and stewardship of, our Society’s social influences.
In her own words, Francesca says “I am delighted and honored to accept the position as President of the SASSF. This means so much to me, and to women all around the world. We hope to expand our 2019 membership and welcome all who have Scottish roots and connections”.
