McQuaid Grads of the ’90s,
I’m reaching out to invite you to a McQuaid gathering for the alumni of the decade of the ’90s. My wife and I were recently blessed with our fourth child, a boy. This magical experience has caused me to reflect on who I am as a person and how best can I prepare my children for the world ahead of them. As I started down this path, my McQuaid experience really jumped out at me. The education, the brotherhood and the mindset caused me to realize how important McQuaid was to my own personal development. The education that prepared me to excel in college, the brotherhood that has always been there for me and most importantly, the man I have become are what stood out. I feel blessed to have had the McQuaid experience because of what it has done for me and to me. I want to give back.
So, I’m sponsoring a reception at McQuaid to be held in the new Wegman Family Science and Technology Center. This new state-of-the-art science building will take our younger brothers to the forefront of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) worlds. You need to see it and all of the changes that McQuaid has undergone since our graduation. So, please allow me to buy you and your significant other, a little food and some libations to show you what McQuaid has become. President Fr. Bob Reiser and vice president for advancement Tim Nally ’67 will take us through the current environment at McQuaid and what lies ahead for future Knights. It’s intended to be an education evening for you. If you like something you see and you want to participate in McQuaid’s future then we can take it from there. If not, you’ll be up to speed on what your alma mater is doing for the young men at McQuaid and the community as a whole. I hope you’ll take me up on dinner and drinks at the Wegman Center.
The event will be Thursday, March 8, 2018 from 6-8 p.m. in the Wegman Center. You can sign up below or contact director of special events, Heather Whiting . I’m really looking forward to seeing old friends and sharing the experience that is McQuaid Jesuit.
