Welcome to the 2016-2017 academic year at Holy Cross. We hope you will join us on the Parents Leadership Circle (PLC). This group of parent leaders is enthusiastic about connecting with faculty, administrators, and other parents, as well as supporting programs and activities that help students at the College.

Parents Leadership Circle members make an annual leadership gift to Holy Cross. There are a number of benefits that come with joining the PLC, and many ways for members to become involved at the College. Following below is a more detailed description of the benefits and opportunities available through this dynamic group of parents.

As co-chairs of the PLC, it gives us great pleasure to contribute our time and resources to Holy Cross. We have been so impressed with how the College engages the whole person, and how our son has thrived on campus.

Parents are an integral part of the Holy Cross community, and the PLC offers many ways to make a difference. Thank you for your consideration and your support. We look forward to seeing you this year.
