Alumnae Forum 2019

On Tuesday, January 8, Sacred Hearts Academy held its annual Alumnae Forum. This was a great opportunity for recent graduates to come back to the Academy and share their college experiences with our current students in grades seven thru 12. 

The 2019 Alumnae Forum boasted a record number, 33, of participating graduates representing nearly 20 different colleges and universities. Colleges such as St. Martins University, Boston University, Creighton University (NE), Fordham University (NY), George Washington University (DC), St. Bonaventure University (NY), Waynesburg University (PA), George Mason University (VA) and the University of Hawaii were represented.

Special guest speaker, Roxanne Solidum Bruhn, Sacred Hearts Academy alumna from the Class of 1973, shared her educational journey while providing
good insights to the senior and junior divisions during the forum.
“I felt in my heart that I had a message to share with them about college, about life, and about the education given at the Academy. It is an honor to be allowed to participate!” -Roxanne Solidum Bruhn, '73
Following the formal portion of the Forum, alumnae gathered in the Academy's gymnasium to host a mini
college fair with opportunities for students to ask questions of the alumnae directly and gather information on their respective colleges.
