MEET A CRUSADER FAMILY

The Ladd's
Tom Ladd '86 and Jennifer and their five daughters reside in Spring Lake where they attend St. Mary's Church.  Tom attended Central Michigan University and works at R.W. Baird in Holland as a Financial Advisor.  Jennifer grew up in Colorado, attended Colorado State and met Tom there.  They moved to Grand Haven in 1992.  They will celebrate their 24th anniversary in April 2018.  

Jessica '14 is entering her senior year at Saint Mary's College in South Bend.  She will double major in Psychology and Social Work and plans to earn her MSW.  Erin '16 will be a sophomore at Central Michigan majoring in Secondary Education.  Hannah '19 will be a junior, active in sports and student government. Future Crusaders Carolyn '23 and Lindsay '25 currently attend St. Mary's School in Spring Lake.

Tom and Jennifer are carrying on the Crusader tradition started by Tom's parents Mike and Donna Ladd.  MCC was not completed yet so both Mike and Donna graduated from St. Mary's High School.  Tom and all five of his siblings went on to graduate from Muskegon Catholic.  Geralyn '79, Anne '80, David '81, Mary '84 and Lisa '88.

Many people may remember Mike "Papa" Ladd in the press box, baseball dugout or basketball sideline keeping stats for any team that he could.  Tom is honoring this tradition by keeping stats for both girls basketball and girls soccer.
