Rebecca (Mackay) and Christopher Fitzpatrick
Rebecca (Mackay) '06 and Christopher Fitzpatrick '04 were wed on
October 11, 2009.
Chris Fitzpatrick (’04) and Rebecca Mackay Fitzpatrick (’06) met in August 2001 when Chris, at the time the Student Government Association Vice President, spoke at Rebecca’s Freshman orientation. They met face to face a few days later, with Rebecca recalling Chris’s speech, and became good friends. One month later, on 9/11, Rebecca stepped up to help Chris and the rest of the SGA and ASSIST plan and deliver a candlelight vigil and memorial service to help students cope with the trauma of 9/11. Chris and Rebecca remained friends and student leaders for one year until September of 2002 when they started dating. Chris was the SGA President at this point, and Rebecca was active with ASSIST and proud to call herself “The First Lady” of the SGA. They continued their relationship and were married in October of 2009. Both are active alumni, with Chris serving on the Recent Alumni Network Committee, chairing the SGA Affinity Group, and sitting on the Career Services Advisory Board. They moved to Mount Tabor in March 2013 and plan to start a family of little Red Hawks in the near future.
