Dear Eagle Parents,
Ernie and I are excited to welcome you and your student to the Benedictine family for an amazing school year! My name is Yvette Knox and I am the Director of Parent and Family Engagement.
It is my goal and intent to be an advocate and resource for you. The first year of college consists of transition and adjustments for both students and their parents. Your student will be faced with new challenges academically, culturally, and socially-- just to name a few.
Therefore, it is imperative that you and I build a partnership to develop a support system that is conducive to their success. I will be the liaison between you and the University, keeping you informed of deadlines, events, resources, and services during your student’s college experience.
I also look forward to hosting events tailor-made just for you, providing the opportunity to network with other parents and gain more knowledge on what to expect as you navigate your student's college years. Please be on the lookout for additional summer communications to keep you abreast of all the exciting things to come.
I look forward to meeting you in the fall as we make this a wonderful experience.
Director of Parent & Family Engagement
