Connelly Career Day 2008 
February 21, 2008

A big 'thank you' goes out to all of the Alumnae for taking the time to return to campus and share their experiences with the Connelly girls. I have received wonderful feedback from the students, faculty and staff. It was exciting to engage the SMART Boards in making the presentations. I appreciate the efforts of those who traveled a great distance and made personal sacrifices to attend Career Day. You are all remarkable, generous and talented women. I am proud to be a fellow Alumna.
