1 Year Ago Today...

One year ago today was my first day "back at school".  For those who are not aware, I currently am working in the same building I went to school in for middle and high school! Sitting at the same lunch tables, seeing some of the same faces, and of course listening to the same end of the day announcements from Mrs. Boatwright! It was such a crazy feeling to be back as an employee, but it has been so worth it. 

Norfolk Collegiate is an independent school in Norfolk, VA that has been around for over 65 years! I work in the Development office with three lovely women who all add their personal touches that make our team work well together. My official title at Norfolk Collegiate is Alimni Relations Coordinator. I know, how fitting right?!?! But that's why this job is perfect for me. Coming into this job I knew I would feel comfortable with classes ranging from 5 or 6 years ahead of me all the way down to the most recent graduating class! It would be more of a challenge getting to know some of the classes in the 70's, 80's, and 90's, but that's what I love about my job. I get to meet new people that at one point in thier lives made memories in the same hallways that I did.  I get to plan events that bring people back together that haven't seen eachother or the school since graduation! It's a great feeling to remind someone of tier high school because to me, high school definitely helped make me the person I am today.

I am so honored to be working at my alma mater and see it continue to improve, grow, and thrive! I love being able to share the news of the school with former parents and alumni and keep them in the loop on what's happening there now! 

Year 2 can only continue to improve the alumni relations the school has! Here's to many more successful events and more alumni coming back to the school this year!
