Involvement at MSJ:
I have been a member of the Mount Saint Joseph Mother’s Club since 2006.  Currently, I am a co-chair of the Saluting Our Mount Men Tribute Book.  Over the years I have also been involved with the Hospitality, Membership, and Faculty Special Events Committees.  My favorite events are the Welcome Tea, Communion Breakfast, Mid-Morning Munchies, Open House, and any type of Meet and Greet event with prospective and incoming students and families.  In addition to involvement with Mothers’ Club, I am also is the parent coordinator for the MSJ Band.  I have 5 sons, with 4 that have attended the Mount: Devin, Class of 2010, Liam, Class of 2014, Connor, Class of 2017, and Sean, Class of 2020.

Favorite Memory: MSJ is Home! We love it here! The MSJ families and the MSJ faculty and staff have always been welcoming to my husband, me, and my five sons. My family moved to the Baltimore area from southeastern Virginia in the summer of 2006, and my second son started at MSJ that fall.  Through the years, whenever we needed support, academically or through the guidance counsellors, someone was always there to help us out. My sons and I have also made wonderful friends for life through MSJ, and I feel that we are all so blessed to be a part of the MSJ Family.   I will miss cheering for the Marching Band at the football games, and seeing my sons and their friends in the MSJ and MDSA musicals and dramas.  I will be so proud of my youngest when he graduates this year, but I know that my heart will be breaking at the same time.

Jennifer Walker
Involvement at MSJ:
Since 2016, I have been actively involved in the Mothers' Club. From homecoming dance, open house, freshman meet and greet night, and donating a lot of desserts along the way, I was given excellent advice before my son even started at MSJ to become involved in the Mothers’ Club. It was great advice and has led to many great friendships.   For the past two years, I have been the co-chair of the Faculty Special Events Committee. This committee is so rewarding because we go the extra mile to recognize the faculty, coaches, and staff for all of their hard work and dedication in growing our sons into young men.

Favorite Memory: I have many fond memories of MSJ over the past four years and will continue making memories for another three years as my younger son continues at MSJ.  What is most meaningful to me is that my sons are walking the same halls and having some of the same experiences that their great grandfather, grandfather, great uncles, uncles, and cousins have had.


Griffiths Walker
Activities at MSJ:
For the past four years, I have been involved in Rugby, Volleyball, Student council, leadership club, business club, NHS, Rho Kappa, Kelly Scholars Program.

Favorite Memory: My favorite Memory at MSJ was being a Senior Leader on junior retreat; it was the most impactful experience I have had at school.

What will you miss most: My friends and hanging out in the junior & senior parking lots after school.

Adona Wimberly, Ph.D.
Involvement at MSJ:
I have enjoyed being a participant of The Mothers' Club including contributing to St. Bernardine's Christmas Drive, donating tasty snacks monthly to MSJ's Morning Munchies, providing desserts and items for other MSJ activities supported by the Mothers' Club, and offering the closing prayer several times during the closing of the Mothers' Club meeting.  Additionally, I have been a parent volunteer for MSJ's Kelly's Scholars Interview Night. I was selected to participate in a Parent Group chosen to share with The MSJ Board of Directors ideas about qualities to consider for "The New Principal Search. I have also initiated and organized the MSJ Track Team Banquets.

Favorite Memory: One of my favorite memories is when MSJ teachers told me that a transformation takes place in their students, which is evident by the end of the students' sophomore year, such that the students become more organized and mature.  I was pleasantly surprised to see this come to fruition. I went from checking the Parent Portal daily to checking it every once in a while because, by the end of my son's sophomore year, he took ownership of his portal and grades. I take delight in watching my son grow "from a Boy into a Man that Matters."


Theodore D. Wimberly, Jr. (Teddy)
Activities at MSJ:
Junior Class Vice President 2018-2019,  Student Council Vice President  2019-2020, Designed the MSJ's  “Spirit Week T-Shirts" 2017, 2018,  and 2019, National Honor  Society Member 2017 to present, Debate Team Member 2016- to present, Speaker at MSJ's Martin Luther King Day Prayer Service 2019 and 2020, MSJ Freshmen Lacrosse Team 2016, and MSJ Track & Field (All-Met and All-MIAA Sprinter) 2017 to present.

Favorite Memory:  Serving as a senior leader during one of the 2019 junior retreats. My junior retreat was one of the most impactful experiences that I had at Saint Joe. The moment I left that retreat, I knew that I wanted to be a senior leader, and signed up to become one the following year. This year, I was selected to be a senior leader for the first junior retreat of the year. My experience as a senior leader was even more significant than my experience in junior retreat. As a senior leader, I had to work together with classmates of mine to make this year's junior retreat as amazing as mine was. I was able to forge special connections with the juniors that I led during the junior retreat, as well as the seniors that helped me lead them.

What will you miss most: I will miss most are the relationships I have made with all of the faculty and staff. During my four years, I have had many great teachers. Many of these teachers, especially teachers that I've had for multiple classes, I still talk to and have a relationship. Some teachers have gone as far as to write numerous letters of recommendation for me. When I leave The Mount this year, I am going to miss walking through the hallways and having so many teachers greet me with a smile.
