The Nonprofit Administration Program is excited to share that soon-to-be graduate and former graduate assistant for the program, Hannah Hill, was selected as the new Alumnae Director at Saint Joseph Academy, her high school alma mater in Cleveland.
Hill begins her new role in June following her graduation from the program this month. After spending the last 6 years at John Carroll, she is excited about this next chapter and to return to one of her favorite places.
Saint Joseph Academy “empowers each young woman to achieve academic excellence and inspires a life of compassionate leadership and service in a global society.”
Hill said, “though it’s been a while since attending SJA, my love and appreciation for my time there has only grown; I’m eager to see it from a completely different perspective. I mean, how many jobs can you tap into your sentimentality and nostalgia on a day-to-day basis? I’m immensely grateful for this opportunity.”
In her new role as Alumnae Director on the Institutional Advancement Team, Hannah is responsible for conceiving, planning, and executing a multi-faceted program of activities, events, communications, and services that deepen the school’s relationship with alumnae, engage alumnae in the life of Saint Joseph Academy, and lead to increased alumnae philanthropic support.
As her time in the program comes to an end, she says, “What began as an interest in service and social justice developed into something far more meaningful and impactful than an addendum to a college application or resume. My experience was everything I was seeking in a graduate program and much more. The last two years have been crucial in my growth and development as a leader, student, professional, and person. I have felt challenged, valued, and accepted throughout my time here. Those with whom I have shared my time in the program have contributed to those feelings tenfold; my classmates are unmatched in terms of support and kindness.”
Hannah also credited her mentor and fearless leader of the Nonprofit Administration Program, Dani Robbins, for making the transition to graduate school relatively seamless amidst a pandemic and all-around tough couple of years.
She said, “the impact that powerful and inspiring women have had on me is vast. Dani is no exception to that. Her leadership has helped me take leaps of faith and trust myself. We’ve had a lot of fun the last two years. And because of that, I now have a lifelong mentor and friend.”
Please join us in congratulating Hannah Hill on this exciting new role! She is truly an “unapologetic social justice leader!”
