Archbishop McNicholas High School is building a first-class Alumni Association! Our first goal is to find ways in which we, the alumni, can benefit each other through business-to-business networking, employment opportunities, social events, and service opportunities. Secondly, we would like to find ways we can use our time, talent, and treasures for the benefit of the current and future students of McNicholas including career shadowing, guest speakers, and scholarship opportunities. Here are some samples of the many things your Alumni Association has been putting together:
Rocketing Into Your Future
Rocketing Into Your Future was an extraordinarily productive meeting of Rockets past and present took place Saturday, Oct. 13. About forty current students participated in the college and career seminar presented by the McNicholas Alumni Association. A number of accomplished working professionals trained the students in skills such as networking and developing a personal brand statement. A panel of college students gave the students insights about making the most of college. The fact that the alumni and students share the McNicholas family bond made the presentations by the alumni especially helpful and the attention by the students especially keen. What a wonderful gift from the alumni!
Alumni Trip to Keeneland
This year’s Alumni Trip to Keeneland was held on Saturday, Oct. 20. Nearly 55 alumni gathered for a fun day in the sun. A great time was had by all. We hope that you can join us October 19, 2019, for next year’s trip. We will have 2 buses next year, so plenty of room for you and your group! Sign-ups will begin next year!
St. Nick at McNick
St. Nick at McNick’s mission is to raise funds for gifts and support to people in need during the Christmas season. For some, St. Nick will provide gifts, and for others, the program will provide necessities such as warm gloves and scarves, clothing, food, and household items. We will have a gift-gathering party on December 11, and we will deliver the gifts to CAIN (Churches Active in Northside) on December 17. If you would like to donate please click here.
