New title, expanded job at St. Hubert’s

Robin Skubin Nolan, director of institutional advancement at St. Hubert’s High School, is now vice president of institutional advancement. The 1990 alum already is responsible for fundraising, alumnae relations, events and community outreach. With the new title comes more duties. “I’ll be taking on the overall marketing and branding of the school,” she said June 10. Lot of background there, she said. Her career before coming to St. Hubert’s was in marketing. Nolan intends to work hard to keep the Torresdale Avenue school associated with words and phrases like “dynamic,” “consistent” and “forward-thinking.” Her new title was approved by the school president’s advisory board on May 29. ••
