This year’s Fall Conference was a great success. More than 40 alumni gathered on a beautiful early fall day at SugarLoaf. To start the day, we heard from our president, Sister Carol Jean Vale, Ph.D., about the exciting things happening at the College. In Session 1, Nancy Dachille, director of Career Development, Mark Hammons, Ph.D., '08, '10 SGS and Mary Ann Stahl Patton ’87 of First Financial Group presented on professional networking, branding and how CHC can help you throughout your career.
After lunch, we enjoyed an inspiring keynote by Abigail Palko, Ph.D. ’96, director of the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center at the University of Virginia. Session 2 was a panel discussion with CHC alumni, Mary Katherine Ortale '16, Cathy Lockyer Moulton '92 and Regina Maxwell Schwille '66 on their involvement with the College and how as alums we can engage with the College in a variety of ways.
