Alumni

Westminster School is pleased to welcome two alumni to the faculty this fall: Cristobal Gomez '10 now serves as director of alumni relations and Kelsey O’Brien '11 serves as director of young alumni programs. 
 
Cris Gomez returned to the faculty after gaining some experience with GiveCampus, an educational technology startup. When first appointed to the Westminster faculty in 2016, he served one year as associate director of admissions before becoming assistant director of leadership gifts in the Advancement Office. As part of his role in Advancement, he ran the Young Alumni Program, which fosters connections with alumni who graduated from Westminster during the past 15 years.
 
Prior to this fall, Kelsey was an advancement officer at Middlesex School where she served as a prospect manager, worked closely with young alumni and reunion classes, assisted with stewardship and communications, and worked as co-head of the school’s giving day.  She also worked in development at Belmont Hill School. 
 
Both Cris and Kelsey are delighted to be back on Williams Hill reconnecting with Westminster alumni in the months ahead.

Welcome Home, Martlets

Whether you graduated this past spring or are quickly approaching a milestone reunion, Westminster has undoubtedly left a lasting impact on your growth and your values. However, it is only with the benefit of hindsight and reflection that we alumni can really start to appreciate the ways in which the school has altered our lives and improved our well-being in an indelible way.
 
I came to Westminster in the mid-'90s as a city kid expecting four years of a challenging education. What I received instead was a thorough exploration of my potential. The community of teachers, coaches, classmates, and administrators challenged my comfort zones in the classroom, in the dormitory, and on the athletic fields. Subjects like calculus, sports like swimming, and extracurriculars involving public speaking were only possible to try because I knew that I always had the community to catch me if I failed. Without that sturdy safety net, the risk of failure would have been too great and the opportunity to push through my boundaries would have been lost.
 
One of my teachers once said, "Nothing worthwhile is easy." As active alumni, we have the ability to grow our community’s impact and continue to pave the way for generations of future Marlets through work and involvement. I encourage you to explore the various ways to lend your support — whether it’s through financial support, volunteering time, or simply social engagement. All of these actions are essential to ensuring that others will have the same ability to explore their own potential — learning to lose with grit and to win with grace.
 
I look forward to hearing from all of you,
Jakub Mleczko ‘00
President, Alumni Association
