Cristo Rey bids a fond farewell to our Director of College Support and Alumni Relations, Dr. Elizabeth Galka. As you know, Elizabeth has been a great support for our alumni for more than four years now. Under her direction, Cristo Rey created a refined alumni database, expanded college support counseling, and increased college retention emergency funds awarded. Last month, Elizabeth earned her PhD and will continue her career supporting the wellbeing and development of young people. We are beyond grateful for the work Elizabeth has done at Cristo Rey and can't wait to see what's next for her!
As this role transitions into the College Counseling department, we warmly welcome Citlally Delgado as our new Manager of Alumni Support. As many of our new alumni know, Citlally (Lally) joined the Cristo Rey community in September 2018. As a College Counselor, Lally oversaw all aspects of the college application process with her caseload of seniors, she developed and maintained partnerships with universities and community access organizations, and managed summer enrichment programming. Prior to joining Cristo Rey, Lally served as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Recife, Brazil.
Lally is a proud first-generation college graduate and a Schuler Scholar alum. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Portuguese and Brazilian Studies from Smith College and is currently in graduate school at Northwestern University pursuing a Masters in Higher Education Administration and Policy. Lally serves on the auxiliary board for the National Museum of Mexican Art and is on the advisory council board for Cristo Rey St. Martin College Prep.
Our alumni represent the best in what Cristo Rey has to offer, and we are incredibly grateful to both Elizabeth and Lally for their dedication and hard work in supporting our graduates.
Alumni, please contact Lally if you have any questions or need assistance. And remember you are always welcome to come back and visit the school any time. We would love to hear from you.
