A message from Tommy:
"Let me start by saying that I am honored and humbled to be chosen to serve as the Director of Advancement at Ursuline Academy. As the oldest Catholic school in the United States, Ursuline has both a rich tradition and a history of excellence in the education and development of successful young women.
The school has graduates who have not only been successful businesswomen and leaders in the community here in New Orleans, but all over the country and the world. It is an honor to have the opportunity to be a part of the great work of the leadership, faculty, and staff and help continue to move the school forward as it approaches its 300th anniversary.
As a native New Orleanian and a graduate of Brother Martin High School, I have the privilege of knowing many Ursuline graduates already. One of my goals in coming to Ursuline is to engage more alumnae to get involved and support their school in time, talent, and treasure. Working as a team, we can continue to make the strides necessary, both in the education offered to the young women of this city as well as to the State Street campus and facilities, to make sure Ursuline is an important part of the community well beyond her 300-year anniversary.
Throughout the year, there are numerous events taking place on campus, from La Fête to Our Lady of Prompt Succor's Feast Day to Spaghetti Fest and many others in between. I'd like to invite you to attend as many events as possible and be a part of the Ursuline community. This is your home and you are welcome back anytime. We welcome your support, help, and feedback.
