Above: Brandon Smith, Jennifer Oliff Jennette and Andrew Gilligan volunteered to be our first three Alumni Ambassadors.

In 2020, three alumni from three different decades were selected as the first faces of our newest Annual Fund initiative to reconnect with Mighty Monarch graduates interested in supporting current and future students at Saint Mary’s Catholic School.

“As Ambassadors, these individuals have graciously lent their images and voices to our annual appeal efforts. Thus far, we have received hundreds of gifts from current staff, families of students and parishioners. We decided to ramp up our efforts with alumni since we know the school holds a special place in their hearts too,” remarked Jennifer Janus, a current Saint Mary’s parent who also coordinates all giving initiatives for the school.

The initiative continued to grow in early 2021, with the addition of four more alumni: Eileen Cabiling (’83), Tim Legler (’80), Alicia Hudalla (’10) and Chip Wirth (’72). Most recently, we’ve added Natalie Maurer (’15) and Jordan Bendura (’16).

There are several ways for Alumni to reconnect and support the school, including:

  1. Making an Online Gift – Any amount will help us reach our $65k goal
  2. Spreading the Word – Like, Comment, Share social media posts
  3. Becoming an Ambassador – Send us your headshot and a quote

Annual Fund gifts help keep tuition affordable and provide students and teachers with the resources they need to thrive. For more information on our Alumni Giving Program or nominating/becoming an Alumni Ambassador, please connect with Jennifer Janus.
