Kate Havelin '83 is September's Macbassador of the month. For the last four years she has volunteered as a first-year dinner host, inviting a professor's class into her home for an evening of conversation. Next month she is hosting dinner for Professor John Kim's first-year class, "Screens." Kate gives regularly to Macalester's Annual Fund, helping ensure that all students receive an excellent Macalester education. She also co-chaired her class's 25-Year Reunion in 2008 and was on her class's reunion committee for her three previous reunions.

Why does Kate do so much for her alma mater? "Mac helped shape me into the person I am now," she says. "I'm happy to have the chance to help others benefit from Macalester."

Macbassadors are alumni who show their passion for their alma mater by volunteering for the college, supporting its mission through their gifts, and telling friends and neighbors about the excellence and uniqueness of a Macalester education.
