Eileen Harmon Junkins '91, Ph.D. was recently named Director of Alumni Relations at Saint Ignatius. A familiar face in the Ignatius community, Dr. Junkins is a 1991 graduate and mother of Kate '19, Maggie '22, Marty '25 and Mary Grace '27. A deep believer in Jesuit education, Dr. Junkins holds a B.A. from Fairfield University, a M.Ed. from Boston College and a Ph.D. from Loyola University Chicago. Most recently, Dr. Junkins served as the Manager of the 150th Anniversary Celebration of Saint Ignatius.
In describing her new role, Dr. Junkins said, "While high school is a quick four years of life, the experience of Saint Ignatius lasts a lifetime. Values learned at Saint Ignatius are fibers woven into the tapestries of friendship, networks and experiences. The Saint Ignatius experience does not end at graduation. The global alumni community of Saint Ignatius is made up of men and women who are bound by the philosophy that faith is realized through action. Ignatians show up. We support others in times of joy, sorrow and in the everyday grind of life. As Director of Alumni Relations, my hope is to help connect alumni to each other, foster mentor and internship opportunities for current students, and ignite an excitement among the alumni community who are the lifeblood of Saint Ignatius College Prep."
