Greetings John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls’ High School alumnae!
John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls’ High School has remained committed to providing young women with opportunities to grow in spirituality, scholarship and service. As the new Director of Annual Giving and Major Gifts, I am excited and eager to get to know each of you and form what I hope will be a long and successful relationship.
Each alumna plays an important role in enhancing this distinctive community of over 40,000 graduates.
Alumnae also play a vital role in ensuring that Hallahan remains a successful secondary institution by demonstrating selfless acts of volunteerism, charitable support, and overall enthusiasm for our school. The energy and passion of our alumnae is undeniably one of the greatest gifts afforded to us by our alma mater. I am looking forward to capturing the stories of these inspirational women so that the Hallahan legacy will live on for many years to come.
I invite you to stay connected and to continue your story as active alumnae. To remain strong as an active and thriving educational institute, we need all of our alumnae to consider the many different ways of being involved and active. There are a number of opportunities to volunteer and share your school spirit. Whether it’s helping with one of our many planned events, attending one of our regional receptions or getting involved in our “Leading Ladies” speaker program, our community appreciates everything you can contribute. I look forward to sharing such opportunities with you in the future.
Our Alumnae is comprised of alumnae who are passionate about Hallahan, the education they received, and the relationships they developed at the School. The Alumnae encourages lifelong ties with the school and fosters enduring friendships between schoolmates. The bond of being a “Girl of the Hallahan High” alumna binds us all – you can always come home to Hallahan!
I also want to stress the importance of alumnae gifts to Hallahan. No matter the size, each and every gift has great importance. Without your generosity, we would not be able to strengthen our curriculum, improve our facilities, or carry on our mission of spirit and charity to the young women that enter our doors each year. Every gift proves to be a testament of your “spirit of charity”, enthusiasm and loyalty as a proud Hallahan alum.
Stay active and stay connected by updating us with important information. We do not share our alumnae information with anyone.
Something new this year is an exciting new initiative called “Class Agents”. We are also looking for former alumnae who would like to volunteer their time to assist the Advancement team gather updated contact information and news about their classmates. If you are interested in becoming a class agent, please contact Alexis Leonard at Aleonard@jwhallahan.com.
Note: There is NO solicitation of donations required of Class Agents.
My office door is always open so please feel free to drop by for a visit, call or email at any time. You can reach me by phone at 215-563-8930, ext 251 or email at Dgeist@jwhallahan.com. Again, I thank you for the irreplaceable role that you play in contributing to the Hallahan experience. We grow stronger each day because of your energy and presence.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
