SOE Alumni & Friends Gather at 3rd Annual Spring Networking Reception


Dean Shane P. Martin and SOE Alumna Mercy-Faith Kirkpatrick ‘11.

More than 150 Los Angeles area alumni, faculty, staff and community partners gathered at LMU on March 21 to reconnect with colleagues and friends and strengthen professional networks. Shane P. Martin, dean and professor of the School of Education, acknowledged the evening was an opportunity to “express our gratitude toward our alumni for being remarkable ambassadors for the School of Education in our area schools, and to thank our community partners for their continued collaboration and support.” Further he encouraged the group to continue their work in advancing the conversation of how best to change the lives of youth and build on our alumni’s lifelong commitment to making a difference through education. Martin also presented a new iPad to the winner of the alumni drawing, Mercy-Faith Kirkpatrick ‘11, chair of the special education department and a resource teacher at Animo Inglewood Charter High School, a Green Dot Public School.
