Patricia "Patty" Rose Landry '01
Wheaton College Alumnae/i Association
National Class Officer Chair
Patty reflects on her time as a student at Wheaton. "From the moment I stepped on campus during visiting day, I knew Wheaton was a special place. During my four years I met many wonderful friends, staff and professors both inside and outside of the classroom. My time outside of the classroom, especially, is where my transferable life and professional skills developed. My time as a member of the field hockey team, a preceptor, student mentor, programming council vice chair and eventually a class officer have all taught me more than I could have ever imagined."
With regards to her alumnae/i volunteer commitment to Wheaton, Patty conveys, "Students, staff and faculty gave so much to me, I continue to stay connected to help give back, and it doesn't hurt that I also get to be around the most amazing people. I am grateful."
Goals for Patty's terms as an Alumnae/i Association National Class Officer Chair and as her Class Vice President are as follows. "I have had the opportunity to be involved with my wonderful Class of 2001 since graduation, first as class secretary and for the past six years as class vice president. As I continue to serve as class vice president, I look forward to the opportunity to get to work with and learn from the many other class officers. I hope to gain more insight into the board in general and have the opportunity to serve as a voice for many of my fellow alums. I want to help build resources and access for class officer outside of the ALC/Reunion cycle and improve communication."
Patty is employed as a Manager of Annual Giving at the Children's Aid Society of New York.
