Alumnae Spotlight Series

Sacred Heart Greenwich alumnae work in a range of fields and industries across the world. The new Alumnae Spotlight Series highlights our graduates’ stories and provides unique career insights.

College Alumnae Congé

It was a busy day on the Sacred Heart Greenwich campus earlier this month as college-aged Sacred Heart alumnae from the classes of 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 joined Sacred Heart juniors and seniors for a lunch and panel in the Core Center. Panelists Maddie McLane '17, Adriana Arias '19, Claire Liddy '19, and Daisy Steinthal '19 offered advice and answered students' questions about college life. They also encouraged students to use the Sacred Heart alumnae network to learn more about the schools they are considering.

Alumnae Sports Reunions

During the Christmas break, we welcomed back many of our Tiger alumnae for the annual Sports Reunions. Thanks to all of you who joined us, we loved getting to see you back in action on our home courts/pool!

Angela Lewis shares message of forgiveness at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Prayer Service
