New Faces – Mount St. Mary Welcomes Director of Communications and Marketing

Mount St. Mary Academy is pleased to welcome Mrs. Jamie Groat.  She joins our staff as the Director of Communications and Marketing.


Jamie double majored in Journalism and Art at the University of Arkansas – Fayetteville.  After graduating in 2005, she joined the staff at Hendrix College as a Communications Assistant.    While there, she also served as the Enrollment Communications Manager and Assistant Director of Career Services.

Jamie is excited to get back to her Communications “roots” here at Mount St. Mary.   She recognizes that it will be a challenge to “learn a new community” but she is excited to continue telling the story about Mount St. Mary.  “Like Hendrix College, Mount St. Mary has a rich culture of service in the community and a strong tradition of values-based education.  I look forward to sharing with our community how our students and alumnae embody the Mission and Live Mercy.”


Mount St. Mary Academy, sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, develops young women with a moral and intellectual foundation rooted in Catholic tradition. Mercy-minded and college-prepared, our students meet the future with wisdom, compassion and integrity.
