Welcome home, sister!
“A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.” – Isadora James
How long has it been since you have come back to Mount St. Mary Academy – a few months (looking at you, recent grad!)? Ten years? Forty or more years? No matter the length of time, we are ready to welcome you back to “the best school we know of.”
Perhaps you are like me and didn’t fully appreciate how unique this school is until after you graduated. But think about it…for close to two centuries – 168 years! – the Mount has been preparing young women to meet the challenges of the future with wisdom, compassion and integrity. That alone is special, right?
Many times I hear alumnae say, “I don’t know how I can get involved at MSM since I don’t have daughters who will be going to school there.” As a mom of two boys, I understand. It seems easier to reconnect when you have a daughter attend. However, there are so many ways to stay connected: Career Day, the Alumnae Picnic and being a member of the MSM Alumnae Association just to name a few.
Believe me, the Mount is still an incredible school. Just take a look on social media and you will see it firsthand. Though the buildings have changed over time, the feeling of family is still here. And you, one of our alumnae, are a part of our history. So come on home…we would love to see you!
