St. Genevieve Memories Website

Check out the website: www.stgenevievememories.org!

St. Genevieve/Gibbons Hall Headmaster Joe Lalley Jr., faculty Tish Anderson and Debby Wolcott, parent of SG/GH alumni Millie Elmore SGP ’64, and alumni Stephanie Smith SG/GH ’86 and Bob Lalley SG/GH ’73 have created a dynamic website to capture the history and legacy of St. Genevieve-of-the-Pines, the School for Secretaries, Gibbons Hall, and St. Genevieve/Gibbons Hall. Stephanie and her company, the Brite Agency, are designing the site, gathering stories, scanning yearbooks, and creating an intuitive place where alumni can connect with each other. As you can see in the image, users may sort by their school and class and view profiles on each alumnus/alumna, and coordinating pictures. The most significant piece is attributed to the work of a partner web firm setting up a user-friendly content management system that can be easily managed by the alumni office after it is launched. The up-front design for intensive site structure will create a site where alumni can update their own memories and pictures in perpetuity, once complete. Constructing the site to handle this much data and user flexibility will cost $28,000.

The hope is to encourage as many alumni as possible from all age groups to recall their days on their campus and share memories with each other. These memories will show a richer, more personal history that can more widely connect to alumni, teachers, and parents than any book or publication could provide. This vision reaches out to students of every generation and recognizes the schools they attended, even if their school no longer physically exists. Though the campus has changed and many of the buildings are no longer there, the school remains alive in the minds and hearts of the alumni, former teachers, and parents. The school also lives on as a part of the history and legacy of Carolina Day School. It is our hope to unveil the site in the fall, but this project is dependent on your support, so please donate today.
