THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE - ELLEN RUSNAK, OUTGOING MOTHERS' GUILD PRESIDENT
On behalf of the 2017/2018 Mothers’ Guild Board and the entire Mothers’ Guild, we would like to extend a warm and appreciative THANK YOU to Ellen Rusnak, our 2017/2018 Mothers’ Guild President for a wonderful and very successful year for the Mothers’ Guild.
Ellen has been an exemplary leader, who truly respected our time-honored traditions, while introducing a few new ones that were added to our “premier” list of traditions, not to mention guiding us through our most financially successful year yet.
Under Ellen’s guidance, and Judy Krohn’s hard work, we have finally launched an idea that has been tossed around for a few years, the Suit, Tie and Blazer Swap. Also, Ellen recognized that sometimes traditions can become antiquated and saw a need for a new way to honor our faculty and staff, and thus, the Faculty and Staff Appreciation Breakfast was launched this year. Finally, our annual donations amounted to a record total of $47,000, which were directed towards the audio system in the Frederico Theater in the Holt Center. These are amazing results that will leave a positive impact on future generations of students, faculty and staff to come through Holy Ghost.
Ellen, you have led the Mothers’ Guild with grace, respect, efficiency, hard work, dedication and you are an excellent example for future presidents to follow, and we sincerely thank you. You will be truly missed, but we all look forward to coming back to Alumni Mom events and reminiscing about the fabulous 2017/2018 year!!
Thank you, Ellen!!
