Face to a Name
Meet Julia Clark, Director of Annual Giving
This summer I have had the opportunity to meet many of our new Freshman parents. It has been a joy to give our newest Marauder parents a call to chat and welcome them to the Jesuit family. They are excited, a bit nervous, and full of hope for all that the Jesuit experience will bring for their son. These conversations bring back memories of when I was a Freshman parent and my son (Neil ’07) first walked onto campus to begin his journey. Once a Jesuit parent, always a Jesuit parent and no matter the era,
we are all linked by the desire for our sons to receive a Jesuit education.
“Together, our administrators, faculty and staff are honored to partner with you to educate your sons for their future, preparing them to be ‘Men for Others’.”
Although my son has long since graduated, in my role within the Office of Advancement I have the good fortune to see firsthand the wonderful education our students continue to receive today. I am blessed to be able to interact with current and former families and hear how their time here made an impact on their lives.
Being a member of Jesuit High School allows the student, the parent and often their extended family to become part of a lifetime community driven by our shared mission. When I speak with families and alumni, I continue to be moved by the stories I hear and am especially touched by those that share from their heart and remain Marauders for life, long after graduation. These moments are such a powerful reminder that what we do each day at Jacob Lane makes a difference!
