Alumni, benefactors, volunteers, faculty, staff, and friends of Notre Dame Seminary have come to know Yvette LaCour and the passion and dedication she has for the mission of Notre Dame Seminary. Yvette and her husband, Greg, began as volunteers working on the second annual Gala and Auction. After two years of working as a volunteer, Yvette joined the staff as the first Director of Development in 2011.
Yvette worked tirelessly to establish a plan to set Notre Dame Seminary up for financial and organizational success. She worked with dedicated committee members and volunteers to establish the Annual Gala and Christmas Luncheon for Priests fundraising events. Both events have grown to welcome over eight hundred attendees each and have become major fundraisers for the seminary. During her ten years as Director of Development, Yvette also worked on multiple capital campaigns including the Priestly Formation Campaign and the I Will Give You Shepherds Campaign.
The seminary community thanks Yvette for her many years of dedication, leadership, and commitment to the mission of Notre Dame Seminary. Although Yvette is retiring from staff here at NDS, we look forward to her continued presence as a volunteer and dedicated supporter of priestly formation. Thank you, Yvette!
