Mary Beth Paynter Engler '73
President, Visitation Academy Alumnae
The Visitation Academy Alumnae Association of St.Louis, Missouri, was founded in 1904. As recorded in the minutes of the first formal meeting of the Alumnae Association on February 22, 1905, our first Alumnae President stated that our aim is "to make our Alma Mater better known, to extend her influence, to be her constant advertisers, to be faithful to her principles, and to infuse them into others. This can be done only by action."
Although many years have passed, these words still accurately reflect the mission of our Alumnae Association. Throughout our long, colorful and vibrant history, we all remain very proud of our Alma Mater.
As one of the oldest and most esteemed schools in the St.Louis area, we have one of the longest standing and most active Alumnae Associations. We look forward to seeing you and many of your classmates at an upcoming Alumnae Association gathering.
