Welcome Fellow Hawks!
On behalf of the Hendricken community, I thank you for visiting the alumni pages of Hendricken.com. One of the most important responsibilities of the Office of Advancement is to partner with you in advancing the mission of Bishop Hendricken, and I welcome your input and ideas about our efforts. I look forward to having you back on campus for special events throughout the year, and giving your Time, Talent, and Treasure to another generation of Hawks.
A part of our Advancement, we want you, our alums, to know that Hendricken will always continue to be part of your life journey. Our Hendricken alumni are everywhere doing great things and our Hawks are always looking to connect with other Hawks. We have recently unveiled www.hendrickenconnect.com, which is our alumni version of Facebook and LinkedIn to help our alumni connect, reconnect and network with other alumni and current students. The platform will have a directory, chatrooms, newsletters, and career services which will include job postings and mentorship opportunities. It will also inform you about the special opportunities for alumni to network with each other online and at our various alumni receptions around New England and the U.S..
Another new piece that we will be rolling out in 2017-18, will be an Alumni Chaplain Program for our alumni to connect with the many alumni priests and chaplains that have a positive Hendricken connection. The program will give our alumni a chance to connect and reconnect with their Catholic faith through retreats, fellowship, and faith.
One example of our alumni giving back, if you didn’t know, is Jon Cyr ’86, who started a Facebook page called Hendricken Net that has been a great way for Jon, as a Class Agent, to help Hendricken’s marketing strategy by promoting all the great things going on at Hendricken and the great things our students and alumni are doing. We are certainly grateful for his efforts.
With your help, we will continue to provide the best academic, athletic, artistic and spiritual opportunities for each young man who walks through our doors. I encourage you to visit the school often, keep us updated on the important events in your life, and share your time, talent or treasure with us whenever possible. Please let me know how the Advancement Team can be of service to you, and feel free to contact me at anytime to share your input or ideas.
