Mary Kirk - Secretary
Mary Kirk is a stay-at-home parent, and a new addition to the Seton LaSalle family with the 2019 transfer of her daughter Sydney, who will graduate in 2022. Mary became involved in Seton LaSalle right from the start—leading the Women’s Rebel Volleyball boosters then stepping directly into the role of adjunct marketing consultant on key events like the annual Seton LaSalle Gala, as well as many marketing initiatives, strategic annual planning, and the relaunch of the new SLS website. With over 25 years of experience in both traditional and non-traditional media and marketing in two of Pittsburgh’s largest advertising agencies, Mary’s extensive background in event planning and strategic communications (national and international) has been put to good use to support the strong leadership team at Seton LaSalle. Mary also served 10 years (2003-2013) on the Board of Directors for Sisters Place, a non-profit organization supporting homeless women and children.
Residing in Upper Saint Clair with her husband Bob and two children (Sydney, 17 and Ian, 15), she actively volunteers at both St Thomas More Catholic parish and at St. Winifred’s food bank. As a lifelong Catholic, Mary has fallen in love with the Rebel family and all things ‘Green and Gold’ and is excited to help move SLS into the next chapter as a member of the board of directors.
