A Special Welcome from our Alumni Board President

I am thrilled and truly honored to serve as President of the Cretin-Derham Hall Alumni Board for the coming year. My personal goal and commitment as President is to continue to engage the alumni to support and assist the school in its current mission and to help keep the school strong for generations to come.

This drive to continue my support for the school is rooted in a long family history with this institution. Cretin-Derham Hall has always been an integral part of my life and family. I learned the importance of an education at Cretin from the example set forth to me by my parents. As alumni of Cretin and St. Joseph's Academy, my parents demonstrated the value they placed on a private Catholic education by sending their four children to Cretin and Derham Hall. My wife and I placed an equal value on a CDH education by sending our two children here.

As we all know, CDH provides a well balanced education and establishes a family with alumni, parents, teachers and staff, as well as long-lasting ties with classmates that stand the test of time. I’m proud to have been able to experience CDH as a student, parent, volunteer, and Alumni Board member.

I’m looking forward to meeting and talking with CDH families in the coming months to hear their stories about why they decided to keep CDH as part of their families. If there’s a way the Alumni Board or I can assist you, or if as an alumni you would like to volunteer your time and experience, please reach out to us.

I’m looking forward to what we will achieve together in 2023/2024.

Live Jesus in our hearts, forever.

From Our Alumni Board Vice President

As an alumna of Cretin-Derham Hall, it brings me joy to foster connections between our school's past, present, and future. These relationships strengthen the ties between generations of graduates and this place we called home for four formative years. While many teachers, coaches, and staff have retired since my time as a student, the school's continued commitment to Catholic social teaching, local and global citizenship, servant leadership, and quality academics remain the bedrock of a CDH education. 

The work we do now will impact families in the CDH community for decades to come, including my own. My toddler has already made herself at home during our annual Cookies and Cocoa with Santa event each year! 

Every alum has a story to tell and talent to offer. It is a privilege to help cultivate both as a member of the Alumni Board. Through our stewardship and support, we can help ensure that CDH remains an outstanding institution for generations to come.

Live Jesus in our hearts, forever.
