RYE, N.Y. -- Various alumnae ranging from the class of 1964-2004 revisited the School of the Holy Child last week to share success stories and offer advice to the all-girl secondary school's students.
Executives from places like IBM, J.Crew Group and The Michael J. Fox Foundation all returned to their roots to offer guidance to some of Holy Childs current students.
"It was an exciting opportunity to give back to the community, and share my life and work experiences," Associate Director of Research Partnership at Michael J. Fox Foundation Tracey Marren Mumford, Holy Child Class of '02, said in a press release.
Alumnae Diedre O'Brien, '93, agreed with Mumford and stated that the event was a "great opportunity" to network with current Holy Child Students.
"It was a wonderful opportunity to meet juniors and seniors and speak with them about their futures, OBrien said. It was very inspiring to hear from the girls about their goals and ambitions.
Other speakers included Elizabeth Buckely, '04 and Sharon Treacy Driscoll, '76. Buckley, a recruiter at J.Crew, originally studied early education at Miami University in Ohio, and assured students that it's okay to change career paths. Both Buckley and Driscoll, a VP of Marketing at IBM, told the students to do what makes them happy.
You've got to find what you love, Driscoll said. Theres a happy future for all of you. Take the time to find out who you are and what really makes you happy.
