Director of Enrollment and Alumni Affairs
Mrs. Jennifer Tolbert
It’s great to be a Yellow Jacket! As we enter into the 2017-2018 school year, I cannot help but think about how instrumental our alumni are to the success of McGill-Toolen Catholic. Our academics are stronger than ever, boasting a professional and dedicated staff – many of which are alumni. I was able to witness the love and support of our alumni donors who made the new Student Center possible at its dedication this past fall. It is both amazing and inspiring to see the amount of support our school, programs, and teams receive both in person and via social media from our alumni. They are so proud of their alma mater and the accomplishments of the programs that they were once a part of. Once a Jacket, always a Jacket!
The Class of 1958 became the first class to hold a reunion in the new Student Center when they met on Saturday, April 22nd. They held an intimate Mass in the new White-Lipscomb Chapel dedicated to their deceased classmates. The Class of 1967 became the first class to hold their 50th Reunion in the new Student Center on Saturday, April 29th, and it was a raging success. Almost 200 people were in attendance to celebrate this special milestone event. They also celebrated Mass in remembrance of their deceased classmates in the White-Lipscomb Chapel and took a tour of campus. Both events played host to graduates from Bishop Toolen, Convent of Mercy, and McGill Institute. We love having our alumni back on campus and are looking forward to hosting the Class of 1968’s 50th Reunion on campus next spring!
We are still looking for volunteers from each class (McGill Institute, Bishop Toolen, Convent of Mercy and McT) to serve as Class Agents. These Class Agents will represent their peers on various McT boards and committees, including the alumni CHSAAM Board; help update their class rosters with current contact information; serve as liaisons during class reunion years; and research and nominate fellow class members for consideration to the McGill-Toolen Catholic Hall of Fame. It is our goal that these Class Agents help bridge the gap between the school and our alumni body, bringing everyone closer together and back “home”. Please let me know if you are interested in serving as a Class Agent by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 251-445-2913. We may have more than one representative from each class, and you do not have to live in the Mobile area to serve. I look forward to hearing from you soon as we look to get started later this summer!
Please make plans to connect with us next school year and we hope to have you as a part of our 2017 Homecoming Celebration. “Who are We? McT!”
