St. Louis Catholic High School is building off its monumental August fundraising efforts with even more growth in its advancement department.  St. Louis Catholic is pleased to announce that Rachel Jones joined the staff Aug. 20 as the Advancement/Communications Coordinator, responsible for research and data collection and organizing Saints communications, as well as assisting Director of Advancement Ashley Ivey-Atkins with constituent relations and special events.

Jones comes to St. Louis Catholic from New Orleans, where she graduated from St. Mary’s Dominican High School in 2007 and most recently worked as the marketing communications manager at the New Orleans Business Alliance. A graduate of LSU, Jones also brings seven years of journalism and multimedia experience from the Lake Charles American Press and NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune.

“In hiring Rachel Jones, St. Louis Catholic High School is fulfilling a commitment to grow and professionalize our Advancement Department,” said Principal Andrew Bradley. “The best Catholic high schools in this country have robust advancement operations, and we are on the path to be one of them.”

St. Louis Catholic soon will expand its advancement team even more, as the school is currently searching for a Director of Admissions.

“Advancing the mission of St. Louis Catholic is the number one priority in the Office of Advancement,” Ivey-Atkins said. “As we evolve, our main focus is to make St. Louis Catholic viable & sustainable well into the future.”

All Saints Auction Raises $150,000 for St. Louis Catholic

More than 300 guests helped St. Louis Catholic High School raise more than $150,000 during the All Saints Auction Aug. 18 at the Historic Calcasieu Marine Bank. The venue was transformed into a Cuban paradise with the theme “Havana Nights.”

We are so grateful to our Auction Chair, Carrie Collins, and everyone in the St. Louis community who came together to launch this landmark event that set a school fundraising record. We sold all 100 available tickets for the Great Tuition Giveaway, the hottest drawing of the night, and the crowd enthusiastically bid on 24 live auction items that included a fishing trip to Costa Rica, a week-long excursion to Colorado, paintings by premier Lake Charles artist Eddie Mormon, a St. Louis graduation photo package and the “Saintsational” parking spot reserved for one lucky student. Monique DeSantos and Jennifer Tassin chaired the silent auction, which featured an incredible variety of items and prize packages including a delicious Sweet Shop.

The Flamethrowers concluded the night with live entertainment following the auction.
