Former Student Hannah Hill ’16 Returns to Saint Joseph Academy as Alumnae Director  


Saint Joseph Academy welcomes almuna Hannah Hill ’16 as the Academy’s new Alumnae Director. As Alumnae Director Ms. Hill ’16 will be part of the Institutional Advancement Team. In this role, Ms. Hill ’16 will be responsible for reconnecting with alumnae using a variety of outreach activities, events, communications and services. 

“The opportunity to return is one for which I am very grateful,” said Ms. Hill ’16. “It has brought me immense joy to share my excitement with others, especially my former classmates and other alumnae.”

Ms. Hill ’16 received her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and a master’s degree in Nonprofit Administration from John Carroll University.  There, she learned the necessary skills of event planning and alumni engagement, served as the liaison between her department and students in the Nonprofit Administration program and was a representative at community events and workshops.  

“Hannah’s experience and knowledge make her a great fit for this role; her passion and ideas for taking the traditions we have and building on those are amazing,” said Ms. Constance Sipple, Vice President of Institutional Advancement. “We can’t wait to share what’s next with our alumnae network.” 

Ms. Hill ’16 is excited to participate in her most cherished Saint Joseph Academy traditions again, but now through the lens of an alumna and staff member.

“I’ve always loved the ‘Walk of the Roses’ tradition; I went every year as a student because it’s such a beautiful event,” said Ms. Hill ’16. “A lot of people say that high school was some of the best years of their lives, but for those of us who went to Saint Joseph Academy  – that statement has a deeper meaning. There’s a rich tradition here, with many events that our alumnae look forward to. Now that I will be the one planning those activities, it’s energizing, and I hope to engage younger alumnae with new events and mentorship opportunities.”

Ms. Hill resides in Parma Heights. She is an avid golfer and previously played on the golf teams at Saint Joseph Academy and John Carroll University.

“Typically, when I tell people that I golf it becomes a talking point. Younger women golfers are hard to come by,” shared Ms. Hill. For more information about Saint Joseph Academy, please email Cheryl Arnold, Marketing Communications Director at
