Monday Morning Update

November 26, 2018


SONS OF SERENDIP SERENADE: Recently, the Sons of Serendip, featuring lead singer Micah Christian ’06, became the first musical group to perform in the May building’s Kate Phalon McCarthy Auditorium. During the inaugural concert, Christian paid tribute to Kate, who died in an accident before she could attend Stonehill, and recognized the extended McCarthy family, which had 30 members in attendance, including her uncle, trustee Brian Doherty ’94. See a Snapshot of their performance here.

HONORING A LEGACY: For 20 of the 30 years he spent in Peru, Rev. David Farrell, C.S.C. '64 served the people of Canto Grande, an impoverished community next to Lima, the capital city. In tribute to what Fr. Farrell, a former Stonehill trustee, achieved as the pastor of 250,000 parishioners in Peru’s largest Catholic parish, the Congregation of Holy Cross recently dedicated a new community Sports and Cultural Pavilion in his name. Learn more about his legacy here.

SUPPORT THE MEEHAN SCHOOL ON #GIVINGTUESDAY: Tomorrow, the College celebrates #GivingTuesday: a day of Stonehill pride, spirit, and phillanthropy. To thank our incredible donors for giving at such a pivotal time to the Meehan School of Business, your name will be proudly displayed on a donor scroll during its construction. Join us tomorrow as we rally toward a historic day of giving, no matter what you give! Support the School of Business here. Support the College fund here.

CARE PACKAGES: During exams last winter, students flocked to the visiting W.B. Mason truck, whose reps distributed care packages of snacks, pens, paper, and other supplies. Given that success, the company just announced their truck will be in the Duffy Lot on reading day, Wednesday, December 12 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Get more information here.

SNEAK PEEK: At the end of a recent tour of the Meehan School of Business work site, Zoe Randolph '19, Dean Debra Salvucci, Janine Murray '19, Molly Jones '19, and Jaqueline Marconi '19 (left to right) got the rare chance to view the campus from the roof of the construction.
