Dear UR Team,
I am excited to announce that Allie Griffith ’17, ’19 M.Ed. will be joining the Alumni Association on July 5 as Writer and Editorial Program Manager. Allie is coming to us from Cathedral High School in Indianapolis, where she taught literature and composition and was the head girls cross country coach. Previously, she taught literature at Providence Cristo Rey High School in Indianapolis while completing the ACE program here at ND.
As a student at Notre Dame, Allie majored in English and American Studies with a minor in creative writing. She was recognized as the Most Outstanding graduating senior in each of her majors, and was also recipient of the 2017 Pasquerilla West Spirit Award for exemplifying “the spirit of Notre Dame in social, recreational, residential, service, and religious activities that promote the welfare of the University and extended communities.” In January, Allie earned an honorable mention in this year’s Notre Dame Magazine Young Alumni Essay Contest for her piece “The Storage Closet.”
In her new position, Allie will manage We Are ND and play a key role in the expansion of our storytelling efforts. She will also oversee Echoes, serve as lead copywriter for the association, and work with ND Magazine and class secretaries on the quarterly Class Notes process.
Please join me in welcoming Allie to the NDAA and UR!
