Alumnae Board

Alumnae Board

The Mount St. Mary Academy Board is a group of MSM Alumnae who share an admiration to our school. Each member of the board wants an active role in supporting Mount St. Mary Academy through connecting our alumnae, cheering on our current students, and participating in school events and fundraisers. The Alumnae Board will serve as an extension of the Development Department to aid in Alumnae Stewardship and communications. The Board will be responsible for providing information on MSM Alumnae to the Development Department, offering new ways to connect with alumnae and the outside community. The Board will offer ideas on the Focus Alumnae Magazine and Monthly Alumnae Newsletters.

During Alumnae Weekend, the Board will be responsible for the planning and execution of the Alumnae Golf Tournament - a means to provide funds for the Alumnae Scholarship Fund. The Board will work with the MSM Admissions Department on choosing a recipient for the Alumnae Scholarship Fund for a member of the incoming freshmen class every year.
