Fran Walters Davis ’82
I’m very grateful for all the opportunities that attending CSB afforded me. In addition to giving monetarily, I would like to give of my time and talent.
Joanie Borman Olson ’88
I feel the networking opportunities that are available for CSB graduates through our alumnae are very important. I want to make sure there are ample ways for alumnae to stay connected.
Nicole Schultz ’20
I want to be able to get into more volunteering now that I am fully settled in St. Cloud. Before coming to CSB I logged over 400 hours of volunteering. When I was a student here, I did continue my volunteering journey as well as take an internship where the focus was volunteer management on our campus.
Joan Van Grinsven Doss ’13
After I moved away from Minnesota, I began to feel disconnected from the college and alumnae organization. I hope to increase engagement of all alumnae, but with a specific focus on out-of-state alumnae. I am also interested in working with the diverse group of women to achieve our common goal of supporting the alumnae organization and the advancement of the College of Saint Benedict.
Libby Grygar ’19
I am excited by the opportunity to re-engage with the alumnae community and contribute to building better relationships between alumnae, current students, and other stakeholders within the college. There's a wealth of information shared between varying groups and I look forward to exploring ways to better reach and communicate with individuals, as well as planning and contributing to engaging events.
Alexa Bollig Lambert ’14
My main interest is giving back to the CSB Community. CSB has shaped the person I am today. Through the relationships I made at my time at CSB and the connections I have made as an alumna I feel the strength of the Bennie Community. I believe by serving on the CSB Alumnae Board I can take all that CSB has instilled in me and share that with current and future Bennies. Those that know me well, will tell you that I thrive in the unknown and love to take on challenges. This opportunity is no different and I think the unique skillset that I have with working with various leadership teams will be a value-add to the CSB Alumnae Board.
Sharon Cogley Paulson ’82
I love being able to interact with other Alumnae and to make a difference in the world. I was very fortunate to be able to attend Saint Ben’s and I feel a strong sisterhood to contribute to the continued development of Saint Ben’s. I have a passion for giving back & creating an inviting environment through fundraising events. I LOVE Saint Ben’s and am at a point in my life that I am working part-time, so I have the time to put my energy into this position.
Kathy Madison Reed ’92
As an enthusiastic CSB grad and a current SJU parent, I am excited about the opportunity to serve on the CSB Alumnae board! I have years of experience serving on local school boards and in church leadership and am looking forward to using these skills in a new capacity at CSB. I look forward to being part of a community focused on growing Alumnae relationships with the CSB institution as well as with other Alumnae. We all do better when we are working together and supporting each other beyond our years as students at CSB.
