Ohio Valley Alumni Chapter Scores a Great Start


More than 135 alumni returned to the Ohio Valley Tip-Off party, held Feb. 23, just before the Toppers took on backyard rival Wheeling Jesuit. Our men’s and women’s teams swept the Cardinals and the Ohio Valley Alumni Chapter was off to a great start!

“This was a very successful start to our new chapter. We look forward to an active and enjoyable association for everyone,” said Director of Alumni Relations Shane Stack ’10.

“The Ohio Valley alumni are the heart of the Forever Hilltopper alumni association since these graduates live closest to campus. We are thrilled with the turnout and look forward to continuing this momentum. We encourage all our alumni to get involved and enjoy and renew their time as Hilltoppers,” said Christine Carder ’72, president of the new group.

Four other Ohio Valley alumni officers are assisting in the organization of the new group: Christine Warco Battista ’10, Joelle Connors ’03, Ingrid Loy ’96 and Billy Niesslein ’08.

“I’m happy that the Ohio Valley alumni group now has a presence and is meeting and planning events. Our officers are working to create a useful network of contacts and to offer a variety of events to enjoy. I’m grateful for their work,” Stack said.

“It was good to reconnect with so many friends. We’ll continue to offer programs and events to enjoy both professionally and socially,” Carder said.
