Back in August, I wrote about several changes taking place in the Advancement Office. Since that blog, changes have continued and progress has been made to keep our office moving forward.
In September, Natalie Stevens joined our team as the Development Database and Alumni Relations Administrator. Natalie spent the last 4 years working for Franciscan St. Elizabeth Hospital ensuring legal and ethical compliance with patient medical records. She stays busy with her career, family, and sports. Her and her husband Ricky, of 9-years, have three children: Kellen (7), A.J. (3), and Cali (1). Both Natalie and Ricky share a passion for sports and continue to give back through their love of coaching. Natalie recently joined the CC softball coaching staff after spending 12 seasons as an assistant for Jeff H.S., and Ricky spends the Fall season as an assistant coach for Jeff H.S. football team. Natalie also represents “The Ohio State” football team around the office whenever possible. Natalie recently shared, “I love doing this for the kids and a better future.”
In February, Emily Bollock ‘09, joined the team as the Manager of Constituent Relations. Emily graduated from Purdue University in 2013 and spent the last two years working for the United Way as a Community Impact Associate. She and the Bollock family are no strangers to the Lafayette Catholic School System. Emily’s father James (Jim) graduated in 1982, and her grandparents, Ronald and Kathryn Bollock, have been longtime supporters and also sent a daughter, Denise Bollock ’86, through the system. Emily is the oldest of three siblings: Casey Bollock ‘13 is currently a junior at Purdue, and her youngest sister Holly is a senior at Central Catholic Jr.-Sr. High School. She speaks fondly of her graduating class and her time in the Lafayette Catholic School System. She was even her senior year prom queen! I asked Emily what had been the biggest adjustment so far. She said, “Coming in February and the (Blue Knight) Auction is in April!” Translation – my mind is spinning!!!
Please join me in welcoming these two fine young women to the LCSS Advancement Team. They have truly hit the ground running and understand the reason we are here.
