Please join me in welcoming Sean MacCready as a new Associate Regional Director for the Midwest Region. Sean will be working in our Chicago office beginning June 9, 2014. Sean comes to Notre Dame after coordinating the leadership gift advancement efforts of one of Chicago’s oldest academic institutions, Saint Ignatius College Prep.
Originally from Pottsville, PA, Sean earned his Bachelors of Arts in Anthropology and Gender Studies at Notre Dame before moving to Chicago and obtaining his Masters of Arts in Curriculum, Instruction, and Educational Planning as part of Loyola University of Chicago’s LU-CHOICE volunteer teaching program. Following three years of teaching junior high English, science, and social studies, Sean created St. Agnes of Bohemia’s alumni and development program while concurrently completing his Masters of Education in Educational Administration through Notre Dame’s Remick Leadership Program in the Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE). In 2010, Sean transitioned to St. Ignatius College Prep and led the leadership gift efforts at Saint Ignatius with a focus on alumni-driven philanthropy to support a robust tuition assistance program. Sean volunteers with the Notre Dame Club of Chicago’s Non-Profit Networking Committee, serves as the Board Chair of Saint Agnes of Bohemia Catholic Elementary School, is a member of the Auxiliary Board of the Big Shoulders Fund, and serves on the leadership team of Chicago’s ACE Advocates. As a proud Chicagoan of ten years and resident of the Little Italy neighborhood, Sean is excited to return to his alma mater and join Notre Dame’s Chicago-based team.
