Alumni and Friends Gather in Fisher Island, Florida

Alumni and friends of Saint Xavier University gathered on Fisher Island, Fla., on March 29, 2011, for a reception hosted by alumna Sharon Lepore King, '72, and her husband Jerry Schwartz. Sharon King told the gathering how much her Saint Xavier education means to her, how it prepared her for a successful career as a television personality and producer, and how it continues to have an impact on her life.

Nearly 40 guests were introduced to President Christine Wiseman, J.D., who shared her vision for Saint Xavier students and the University. President Wiseman talked about the importance of preparing our students to become leaders of the 21st century workforce, and appealed for funds to support student scholarships and student retention, noting that we are educating the students they will want to hire.

The gathering was an opportunity to introduce President Wiseman to SXU alumni in Florida and to raise the profile of Saint Xavier to many new friends. President Wiseman stated, "We are most grateful to Sharon King and Jerry Schwartz for hosting this reception for our alums and for letting us share our important message with new friends."
