Farewell Vanessa


It is with mixed emotions that I announce Vanessa Minahan will be leaving the ND Alumni Association. Vanessa and her husband, Mike, will be relocating back to California this fall to begin the next chapter in their lives. While Mike will begin at a law firm in Sacramento in early October, Vanessa has graciously offered to stay with the NDAA to see us through the Stanford Football Friday. This is one of the many examples of her dedication and passion for this team and the University.

What we’ll miss most about Vanessa is her positive energy and sincere enthusiasm to help anyone at any time. The class reps, our partners, student workers, along with all of us, have experienced Vanessa’s warm spirit and commitment to excellence. She has made such a positive impact during her time here and hers will be incredibly large shoes to fill. She will be truly missed.

We will be posting for the Event Coordinator position this week. If you know of a potential candidate, on or off campus, please let us know so that we may refer them to the posting online.

Vanessa’s last day in the office will be Friday, October 14. Please join me in wishing Vanessa and Mike the best of luck and well wishes for their future.

Erin Thornton

Special Events Program Director
