After almost four years of distinguished and devoted service to the Saint Anselm College alumni community, this summer Kevin Fitzgerald '00 announced that he is stepping down as President of the Alumni Council.
In an email to the alumni community, Fitzgerald wrote, "It has been a real honor to help our efforts in supporting our Alumni across the globe and I am most proud of the work we have done over the last several years to better engage with current students in way that helps to develop the long term sense of pride we all share for Saint Anselm College."
Michaela (Rocha) Scott '09 has been named the new President of the Alumni Council. She has served on the Council for several years and has been a leader for her classmates and fellow Anselmians since she arrived on campus more than 10 years ago. She brings a broad understanding of the important issues facing alumni and the college community, as well as a focus on working with current students. Michaela currently also serves on the Athletic Director's Advisory Group, and has returned to the Hilltop to bring the benefit of her experience to students for events such as last spring's "Soaring to New Heights: Women's Success Stories" panel presented by the Multicultural Center and Career Services.
"I'm humbled and honored to serve as Kevin's successor as President of the Alumni Council," says Scott. "I'm incredibly proud of the Council's devotion to our entire Anselmian community, and I'm so looking forward to working with the Council members in continuing to represent our alumni."
Scott is a Vice President at Boston Partners Financial Group LLC in Boston, Mass., where she has won multiple awards for excellence in client services, including the Five Star Wealth Manager Award by Boston Magazine, an honor presented to less than three percent of the advisors in the Greater Boston area.
Robert Elliott '95 will remain in his position as Vice President of the Alumni Association to assist with the leadership transition.
