Leah and Sarah Kilby, the daughters of Kate Kilby in Holy Cross Human Resources, and Kaeleigh and Maeve Sullivan, the daughters of Brenda Hounsell Sullivan in Student Affairs, brought their pint-sized purple pride to the first home football game of the season. The Crusaders bested Morgan State 29-26.
The Massachusetts Bar Association (MBA) held its annual dinner on May 15 at the Westin Boston Waterfront, and three Holy Cross alumni were front and center: the MBA’s secretary, Christopher A. Kenney ’87 (left), keynote speaker Chris Matthews ’67 of MSNBC’s “Hardball” (center) and the MBA’s vice president, Christopher P. Sullivan ’71 P02 (right).
Photographer John Buckingham captured these gorgeous spring images as he criss-crossed campus this week: St. Joseph Memorial Chapel framed by hot pink azaleas and a brilliant blue sky, and a student relaxing in O’Neill Plaza near the statue of Rev. Pedro Arrupe, S.J. (the twenty-eighth Superior General of the Society of Jesus).
The College held its first-ever accepted Chinese students reception in Beijing recently at the Park Hyatt Beijing. According to Xiaofeng Wan, assistant director of admissions, the event was a hit with the students and their families, who commented that no other college or university where their children had been accepted had planned such a welcome. Hank Hulick ’11(in the center behind the banner), Nate Nault ’11 (on the right with yellow tie) and Nestor Santana ’04 (holding the tip of the pennant) hosted the reception.
Th Minority Education Professional Network aims to create a welcoming environment for minority professionals in Worcester’s colleges, universities and public schools. Rob Jones, associate director of multicultural education at Holy Cross, and Jacqueline Peterson, the College’s dean of students and vice president for student affairs, serve on the group’s steering committee, and hosted its networking reception in the Hogan Campus Center on Feb. 26. Worcester’s public school superintendent, Melinda Boone, served as the keynote speaker. Jones, shown here with Boone; Charise Wilson, an admissions counselor at Becker College; and Dean Peterson, commented on the networking event: “What a pleasure to network with the many education professionals of color in the Worcester Community!”

On Dec. 14, volunteers from the Holy Cross Club of the Capital Region joined Boston College alumni at Arlington National Cemetery to place wreaths at the graves of deceased Crusaders and Eagles. This joint event, part of a national “Wreaths Across America” effort, aimed to honor our fallen heroes. Through the on-campus research of Rev. Robert Keane, S.J., director of Special Projects in Mission, 15 Holy Cross alumni were identified as being interred at Arlington. If you know of alumni who are buried at the National Cemetery, please contact the Alumni Relations Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-793-2483.
