Meet the Director of Alumni Relations & Development

A native Chicagoan, Ann Cherry has worked in the not-for-profit field for more than 20 years, including St. Xavier University where she obtained her bachelor’s degree, and Lewis University in Joliet where she served as in a variety of positions in development and alumni relations. Most recently, she was the Director of Alumni and Constituent Relations at the Laboratory Schools of the University of Chicago.

Her main objective in setting up the first alumni office in H-F’s history is to create a solid database of the more than 33,000 graduates and launch a volunteer driven alumni association. Other objectives include creating an alumni speakers bureau to invite alumni back to campus to interact with our current students and the on-going development of a wide variety of special events and philanthropic programs to encourage Viking pride!
