Director of Enrollment and Alumni Affairs
Mrs. Jennifer Tolbert
It’s great to be a Yellow Jacket! As we wrap another successful school year, I cannot help but think about how instrumental our alumni have been in its success. Our academics are stronger than ever, boasting a professional and dedicated staff – many of which are alumni. 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 month of April brought us the first annual Alumni Giving Challenge, with donations going towards The Fund for McGill-Toolen Catholic. The Challenge brought in 50 new donors and helped push our total Alumni giving to The Fund to over $268,000 for the 2017-2018 school year. The Class of 1985 came out on top boasting the highest number of donors, with the Classes of 1968 and 1959 finishing second and third respectively.
The Class of 1968 held their 50th Reunion in the Student Center on Saturday, April 21, 2018 hosting alumni from Bishop Toolen, Convent of Mercy and McGill Institute. They held an intimate Mass in the White-Lipscomb Chapel dedicated to their deceased classmates and took a tour of campus, reminiscing about classrooms, teachers and the memories they made together. Over 210 alumni and their guests enjoyed the main event in the dining hall. Afterwards, classmates put their own stamp on the storied McT tradition of painting the cannon! We love having our alumni back on campus and look forward to hosting the Class of 1998 in the fall and the Classes of 1969 and 1999 in the summer of 2019.
Please make plans to connect with us next school year and we hope to have you as a part of our 2018 Homecoming Celebration. “Who are We? McT!”
