A Golden Group: Golden Stars shine in the Alumni Office

The next volunteer session will meet on Thursday, February 6, 2014, in Greenville Hall, 9:30 - 11:00 a.m.

In a busy office, things can pile up. Luckily, some of our Loyola alumni have stepped up to the plate and are lending a helping hand. Once a month, the Golden Stars meet to socialize and assist the Office of Institutional Advancement with a variety of administrative tasks. “It's a good feeling to volunteer at Loyola and to repay in some small way for the education and four year scholarship,” stated Erwin Caswell ’56, J.D. ’70.

From organizing binders, to folding t-shirts, and addressing envelopes, the Golden Star volunteers provide much needed and appreciated assistance to Loyola staff. The local group meets on a monthly basis on the first Thursday of each month, 9:30 – 11:00 a.m. in Greenville Hall, front parlor, located on the Broadway campus.

“We have helped prepare packets to be distributed to attendees at Loyola functions, we made phone calls to other graduates informing them of upcoming activities, and we have also contacted new students by phone to let them know the advantages of a Loyola education,” said Mary Ann Sherry ’62.

In some ways our offices would be inundated with work if it wasn’t for our volunteers. “Thank you for volunteering! We appreciate your passion and enthusiasm for Loyola University New Orleans. You are a strategic resource of great importance. Thank you again for all you do to support the university,” remarked Lisa Adams, Associate Director of Alumni Relations.

Several of our Golden Stars love the fact that they can return to campus and meet other alumni. “I enjoy working with other Golden Stars, most of whom I did not know during my years at Loyola,” said Caswell, “It gives alumni a chance to see the ongoing construction and renovations taking place on campus.”
