Alumni from every decade — from the 1940s to the “aughts” — are expected to return to Holy Cross classrooms on April 20. More than 175 alumni, spouses, friends and parents will be back on campus for the 31st annual Classroom Revisited event sponsored by the Holy Cross Alumni Association.
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of coeducation, a committee of alumni volunteers, chaired by Paula Murphy ’76, and Amy Wolfson, associate dean for faculty development and professor of psychology, worked “to highlight the talented women and men who have chosen to return to Holy Cross as a career and help to educate today’s students,” according to Thomas Cadigan ’02, associate director of Alumni Relations.
Participating faculty members represent a diverse range of fields: Daniel DiCenso ’98, assistant professor of music; Joshua Farrell ’94, Thomas E. D’Ambra Professor of Chemistry; Ericka Fisher ’96, associate professor of education; Lisa Fluet ’96, assistant professor of English; Roger Hankins, director of the Cantor Art Gallery; Marybeth Kearns-Barrett ’84, P14, 13, director of the Chaplains’ Office; Ellen Keohane ’83, director of Information Technology Services; Edward O’Donnell ’86, associate professor of history; Mary Doyle Roche ’90, associate professor of religious studies; and Susan Rodgers, professor of anthropology.
More than 2,000 alumni have taken part in Classroom Revisited since the program’s inception.
