LEGACY 2011/12 1


To Carlow University’s Benefactors: In this annual publication where we acknowledge gifts of self and substance, we at Carlow University give thanks for and to our many benefactors. We offer our primary and constant thanks to our God who gifts us with abundance and diversity of life and who graces us with the opportunity to educate students in the vision, tradition, and values of the Sisters of Mercy. We offer our continuing thanks to the Sisters of Mercy, who founded and served Mount Mercy College, now Carlow University, and who donated themselves and their substance as the first benefactors of this unique institution. We offer our thanks to all the faculty, staff, and volunteers who have joined us in our mission to educate students to be life-long learners, thinkers, questioners, advocates, change agents, and examples of ethical behavior and servant leadership. We offer our thanks to all the students who have chosen Mount Mercy College/Carlow University as their academic home at all levels of education, and who as alumni continue to make good things happen in their lives, in their professions, in their communities, and for their alma mater by their knowledge, research, service, support, and leadership…all grounded in their Mercy education. And with the publication of this Legacy report, we offer our thanks to you, our benefactors, who have contributed your gifts of self and substance to enable Carlow University to plant the seeds of wisdom, to cultivate student learning, and to reap the harvest of achievement. We live in a time of significant change and challenge, and in a world of transition and transformation. Carlow University’s position on a hill reminds us of the true meaning of “higher” education. We are called to provide a higher educational experience for our students. We are motivated to hold higher expectations of those who inhabit our community of learning. We are challenged to demonstrate the higher responsibilities of educated persons in service to others. We are committed to represent the higher values embodied in the charisms of our Sisters of Mercy and in the Catholic Intellectual Tradition. Without the generosity of our beloved benefactors, Carlow University would struggle to embrace challenges and reap opportunities. Given our mission of service and social justice, our slim tuition resources are dedicated directly to educating our students. Carlow will never be a wealthy institution, nor will we ever aspire to that status. But your gifts help us to meet the ever-growing needs of our students and the increasing costs of providing them with a quality education. Your Carlow Fund contributions, your scholarships and endowments, give access to those students who cannot afford the full cost of their education. Your gifts provide program enhancements and out-of-class opportunities for those students, and support professional development and technology for their faculty and staff. Your grants allow us to reach out to others in our community with special programming and services, and support our efforts to improve our facilities. For all you do to make a difference at Carlow University and to help our learners fulfill their academic and career goals, we offer our heartfelt gratitude. Sincerely,

Dr. Mary Hines President Carlow University

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT 2


Every day, you are making an impact at Carlow University. Your continued commitment to our mission and our students is allowing Carlow to rise to its fullest potential, hopeful and prepared for the possibilities of what is to come. It is because of you, our generous benefactors, that we are able to uphold the Mercy legacy by continuing to offer our students a Catholic, women-centered, liberal arts education. At the same time, you enable us to reach towards our bold vision for the future as a 21st-century learning institution. On behalf of a grateful Carlow community, I thank you. Fundraising continues to be a challenge for many colleges and universities in this economic climate. However, each of the gifts we receive from our alumni and friends goes a long way in supporting our students, faculty, programs, and facilities. Throughout this report, you will read stories that illustrate how every gift matters and each gift has a meaningful impact at Carlow. Whether it be through a grant to enhance student support services or renovate physical spaces, a contribution to commemorate one of life’s milestones, a challenge gift to inspire others to give, or the donation of their precious time and talent, our benefactors have had an indelible effect on the Carlow community at large. To all of you who are benefactors, thank you. Your generosity is helping Carlow to support the educational goals of our students, while also enriching their lives by providing opportunities for personal, professional, and spiritual growth. We consider your gift an investment in Carlow’s future and, more importantly, our students’ futures, and we are committed to being excellent stewards of your contributions. We trust that you agree. To those of you who have thought about giving, or who have thought that what you do will not matter, I encourage you to read the stories of those whose generosity has been meaningful to Carlow. We hope that you will be inspired to join us in supporting this worthy mission. With gratitude for all that you have already made possible and all that is yet to come,

Few things cause more anxiety for students than receiving their grades. Carlow University students who suffer a few anxious moments before opening an envelope or, in more recent years, going online to see their grades have it relatively easy. Rita M. McGinley, class of 1940, remembers having to face the intimidating presence of Sister Regis Grace, the first dean of students and one of the co-founders of the University, just to find out her grade in freshman composition. “My first semester I had all A’s and one C,” McGinley remembers. She says Sister Regis Grace would read the course title then pause for a moment before reading the grade. If the grade was an A, she would simply say something like, “good” or “well done,” and move on to the next one. To this day, though, she can repeat exactly what Sister Regis Grace said when she reached the course in which McGinley received the C. “She said, ‘Oh my child, what a fall,’” McGinley recalls. “Facing Sister Regis Grace was worse than facing my parents.”

There are moments in everyone’s life that shape and define it. For McGinley, facing Sister Regis Grace was one of those moments, but hers is a life with many such defining moments. Her earliest memories are from her hometown, Braddock, Pa., the Mon Valley steel town which was also the site of Andrew Carnegie’s first steel mill, the Edgar Thompson Works. The Braddock of McGinley’s youth was a booming metropolis where the sidewalks were alive on a Saturday night. “You could get everything you needed in Braddock,” she says, and the names of the nine department stores come flooding back. “There was The Famous, and Hirshberg’s, Sach’s Ladies Store, and Butler’s Grocery.” “Everything you needed” extended to healthcare, too. Her family’s neighbor, Dr. Carlson, who later became more famous as Doc Carlson, the head basketball coach at the University of Pittsburgh, removed her brother Jack’s tonsils right in the office. Carlson was often seeking to offer assistance, says McGinley. “Doc Carlson used to let everyone know that he was leaving for the University of Pittsburgh at a certain time, and anyone from the neighborhood who needed a ride would be standing on Braddock Avenue when he went past,” she remembers.

“Everything you needed” would extend to the generosity of one to another, too, even the folks who didn’t speak English. In McGinley’s youth, Braddock was a melting pot of European cultures and languages. Her father came to know Father Abromaitis, the priest at St. Isidore, the Lithuanian church in town, whom he affectionately called “Father A-to-Z” because of the difficulty in pronouncing his name. “When my father heard St. Isidore didn’t have money to buy coal for their furnace, he rallied the men from St. Brendan’s, my home parish, to raise the money so St. Isidore could fire up their furnaces that winter,” McGinley remembers. The parish’s selfless act was another defining moment for McGinley, who learned the importance of extending a helping hand to others. Perhaps it was one of the reasons she became a teacher. “I thought I’d become a doctor,” she says, then recalls the ill-fated salamander dissection in biology class. “Dr. Finn told us to cut into our salamanders, and as soon as we cut it, it jumped and we all started to cry. Can you imagine how I’d be in an operating room?” McGinley stuck with her biology major, but decided to teach rather than practice medicine—following in the footsteps of her mother, who taught


Rita M. McGinley ’40

English at a small Braddock business school. She recalls her proud father saying, “I am surrounded by teachers.” Following footsteps is something McGinley has done all her life, and she has had plenty of examples, from Doc Carlson, to her father, Barney, to those who helped define her path while a student at Mount Mercy College, now Carlow University. Those moments spent face-toface with Sister Regis Grace made a tremendous impact on McGinley,

inspiring her to focus on student success during her 45-year career as a teacher and guidance counselor in the General Braddock and then Woodland Hills school districts. She maintains her focus to this day, notably as the centerpiece of her philanthropic efforts at her alma mater. The Rita M. McGinley Center for Student Success is at the core of the newly envisioned Carlow University Learning Commons. Soon to be located in the repurposed Grace Library at the

center of campus, the new Learning Commons will become a focal point of the Carlow student experience. The new Center will integrate an array of services that support student and faculty learning. It will include Carlow’s Center for Academic Achievement, the Learning Laboratory for Math Education, the Service Learning Center, the Mercy Center for Service, the Center for Global Studies, the Center for Faculty Excellence, and Academic Advising. Carlow also plans additional learning laboratories, including a literacy lab in writing and technology, and a language lab to support global education. When asked to contribute to Carlow, McGinley had a simple request. “I said I would like to fund something that shows how you can get the most out of a small college,” she says. “When I was at Carlow, it was always a small college, everyone was so friendly, and ready to help you if you needed it.” The Rita M. McGinley Center for Student Success will come to fruition because McGinley remembers. She remembers the examples of Doc Carlson, of Sister Regis Grace, and most importantly, she remembers the example of her parents’ determination to always help those in need. Because McGinley remembers, Carlow students now, and in the future, will be forever grateful.

NEW S TEM L A B ENH A N C E S STUDE NT L E A R NI NG

Within the next five years, the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics predicts that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) jobs will grow twice as quickly as occupations in other fields. At a time when the economy needs more STEM professionals, STEM education has struggled to keep pace. Thanks to the generous help of the Buhl Foundation, PNC Charitable Trusts, and the A.J. and Sigismunda Palumbo Charitable Trust, Carlow University has bolstered its STEM education initiatives. Notably, the University christened its new STEM Digital Learning Laboratory, which allows all students, especially those in STEM disciplines, to have access to the best technology to enhance their learning. The lab also prepares teachers to use the newest technology available to aid students. “We think what’s interesting about it, is it’s not simply technology for technology’s sake,” says Fred Thieman, president of the Buhl Foundation, which donated $150,000 to support high performance initiatives in mathematics education. PNC Charitable Trusts and the A.J. and Sigismunda Palumbo Charitable Trust combined donated $50,000 to the STEM lab.

“STEM is critical on a number of levels. In a global economy, the United States is really falling behind on the key science-based areas … The teaching techniques to close that gap are important,” Thieman adds. The new STEM lab is located on the second floor of the A.J. Palumbo Hall of Science and Technology and features state-of-the-art educational tools. A laptop and projector transform into a SMART board that enables students to share notes electronically and save them. Students have access to high-speed desktop computers with touch screens, allowing them to manipulate molecules, atoms, and chemical compounds. They also can use one of 10 iPads and the most advanced models and books. Thieman notes that Buhl believed furthering STEM education at Carlow was important because women traditionally have been underrepresented in STEM fields and Carlow’s dedication to such initiatives helps women access the educational resources so important to STEM careers. “We are so impressed with [Carlow’s] historic commitment to women; it’s also committed to women who are first-generation college attendees so it is reaching out into a population that has historically been underserved.”

Hilary Brown Purcell, project planner with PNC Charitable Trusts, says this project was a perfect fit for one of the trusts interested in supporting education in Western Pennsylvania. “We knew that Carlow would deploy these funds for the greatest impact—that this lab would make a big difference,” says Brown Purcell. She also believed that investing in Carlow’s STEM lab would have a reaching impact: “Carlow works with all different types of students at all different levels—that kind of education is reaching a population that sometimes hasn’t been given the opportunity, whether they are first-generation or an older student, or a student that needs a little bit of support. But [Carlow is] providing a quality education and giving them [skills] to find jobs right here in Pittsburgh.” Both Thieman and Brown Purcell note that the leadership of Carlow and the enthusiasm of the students and faculty is what truly makes it a worthwhile investment. “It is something that is important to the region, so it is just a perfect fit. The lab is beautiful and the faculty couldn’t be more sincerely excited,” says Brown Purcell. John W. Kowach, executive director of the A.J. and Sigismunda Palumbo Charitable Trust, envisions

the STEM lab as a continuation of quality education at Carlow. “Carlow University has an outstanding tradition of academic excellence, especially in the areas of science and technology,” says Kowach. “The grant awarded by the A.J. and Sigismunda Palumbo Charitable Trust will hopefully enable Carlow to fulfill its vision of creating a STEM lab that will provide an integrated learning experience for all of its students. The Palumbo Charitable Trust is proud to support this initiative that will help students secure the skills needed to succeed when faced with the demands and challenges of the contemporary college curriculum.”

For eight years, Pamela Clark took courses to earn a bachelor’s degree in theology from Carlow University. In her classes, the mother of four met other nontraditional students, many of whom juggled family, school, and a career. “I met the most amazing women in my classes, young and old alike, who were nontraditional students who were raising families and working full time and trying to better themselves and get an education so they could get a better job—I admired them so much,” says Clark. Clark’s children were older when she returned to school and her work schedule was flexible, so her experience at Carlow differed from other nontraditional students. As her December 2011 graduation neared, she realized her siblings, parents, in-laws, and children would want to give her gifts. Instead of asking for presents, she requested that her family make donations for a scholarship for nontraditional students. “I asked if she wanted to endow her own fund ... but she felt that growing an already established endowment

10 LEGACY 2 0 1 1 / 2 0 1 2

for adult students would be the best way to apply her gifts,” explains Anita Dacal, executive director of advancement and alumni relations. “As we were talking, I thought, ‘Oh my goodness. We already have a fund named Clark.’” And it turns out the Leonard and Mary D. Clark Memorial Scholarship was the perfect scholarship for Pamela Clark to support—it’s awarded annually to a female, undergraduate nontraditional student. The fund, established by Eleanor Clark Quigley, who graduated in 1975, honors the memory of her parents. “Mary, my mother, was very interested in education and in my education. When I graduated high school in 1950 I wasn’t going to go to college,” explains Clark Quigley. But Mary Clark convinced a cousin to chat with Clark Quigley about Mount Mercy College, and Clark Quigley attended for two years before leaving to get married and start her family. When Clark Quigley was in her 40s, she re-enrolled at Carlow. When she graduated, she became a first grade teacher in the Norwin School District, where she taught for 22 years. “I was a nontraditional student. Mount Mercy helped me obtain scholarships and loans. I was thrilled to be given a job to pay off those loans and it helped me decide that

[starting a scholarship] would be helpful,” says Clark Quigley. Her daughter, Susan Hankowitz, also graduated from Carlow in 2001 as a nontraditional student.

In today’s global economy, the spotlight is on education as never before. And while the world’s top-paying jobs are increasingly tied to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) innovation, statistics show that American students are falling behind their international counterparts. It’s imperative that schools reexamine educational approaches to these subjects. That’s why STEM and now STEAM, which adds an “A” for Arts, are the buzzwords of the moment. In an effort to strengthen education on both collegiate and elementary levels, Carlow University and The Campus School have forged a new initiative: STEAM RISES (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics as a Rigorous Integration of Student Engagement in School). Beginning in Fall 2011, Campus School and School of Education faculty began to examine how to best focus on STEM training within their schools. A lead team was formed, comprised of faculty and staff from both The Campus School and the School of Education, and a new

initiative was begun. STEAM RISES seeks to strengthen the relationship between the two institutions, build upon new goals, and better align with the national STEM movement. To date, financial support for STEAM RISES has come from The Campus School’s Founder’s Legacy Fund, which includes professional development funds, gifts from current and former Campus School parents, and from unrestricted dollars garnered from the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC). Grant funding is currently being solicited, as well. Carlow and The Campus School contracted with the National Center for STEM Elementary Education, located at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minn., and are in the process of revamping curriculum, focusing on a different STEM subject across all Campus School curriculum, for each of the next three years. This year’s focus is on chemistry, and subsequent years will highlight engineering and biology. The entire Campus School faculty, as well as faculty from the School of Education, came together for five days of professional development in August 2012, working with Carlow’s new Scholar-in-Residence Lori Maxfield, an education specialist who has been an integral part of the National Center for STEM Elementary Education, and chemistry faculty member Annalisa

Jordan, both from St. Catherine University. The summer sessions focused on “chemistry and life” concepts which are being incorporated into the Campus School curriculum. “It’s important that elementary education teachers are comfortable teaching STEM subject matter,” says Campus School Executive Director and Head of School Michelle Peduto. The research shows, she says, that exposing students to STEM content across the curriculum, fostering critical thinking skills as part of the process, has a strong impact upon learning outcomes. “The more they are exposed, the more they learn,” emphasizes Peduto.

CREAT I V E G I V I NG CAPOZZI KIRR CHALLENGE CONTINUES TO PAY IT FORWARD

Barbara Capozzi Kirr ’60 has a message to tell. She wants to make sure others know the life-changing quality of the Carlow experience. A social work graduate, Capozzi Kirr says she’s very grateful for the solid education she received, but also for the perspective she gained, inspiring in her a love of learning that continues to this day. Capozzi Kirr is a former Carlow trustee and her husband, David Kirr, is a life member of Carnegie Mellon’s Board of Trustees. They both know the importance of giving back to their alma maters, and they have decided to spread the word about Carlow in the form of generous gifts that keep on giving. In 2005, the Kirrs set aside $50,000 for the Barbara A. Capozzi Kirr ’60 and David M. Kirr Endowment for Teaching Excellence. At the same time, they gave an additional $50,000, creating the Capozzi Kirr Endowment Challenge. It was, says Kirr, a way to share their good fortune and inspire others to do the same. Their challenge gift, available in 10 $5,000 grants, would match any individual or group of individuals or organizations that would give $20,000

12 LEGACY 2 0 1 1 / 2 0 1 2

Barbara Capozzi Kirr ’60 and David Kirr

toward establishing a new, named endowment for $25,000. For each new named endowment, the Kirrs would contribute $5,000. “We’ve seen instances when people have made a gift as a challenge, inducing other people to match the gift one-to-one,” says David Kirr. “In that fashion, they multiply the magnitude of the gift they’ve made. I suggested to Barbara that we could do that, but if we could use that gift to further multiply what others would give, the University would benefit much more.”

Kirr recalls learning that the minimum gift to fund an endowed scholarship at Carlow was $25,000. “We thought, ‘hmm…, if we gave $5,000 and inspired people to give $20,000, it was a four-to-one effect rather than a one-toone effect,’” he says. Anita Dacal, Carlow University executive director of advancement and alumni relations, says that, seven years since its inception, the Capozzi Kirr Challenge has been “tremendously successful.” She points out that, after the first $50,000 in matching grants


was given out, the Kirrs continued to give—helping to fund a total of 28 endowed scholarships. “It’s so incredible,” says Dacal. “They helped us in ways you can’t even count. It’s a real, organic, philanthropic experience. This is relationship building. It’s understanding where your money is going and who it is educating. It’s a whole different feel than just making a gift.” Dacal says the challenge has inspired many to give more—including Georgia Lundberg Navaretta ’63. Having pursued a fulfilling nursing career, first as a U.S. Naval Officer and then later as a public health nurse and a pediatric hospital nurse, today Navaretta and her husband, Gerald Navaretta, live in Kingwood, Texas. They came across the Capozzi Kirr Challenge while researching endowed scholarships on the Carlow’s website. “It was too hard to pass up,” she says. “It gave us a way to give money now, and direct where the money would go. The Kirr matching funds were an opportunity to set up our scholarship earlier than we planned.” While the timing was perfect— honoring Navaretta’s fiftieth reunion in 2013—her greatest wish was to ensure that young people could grow from the Carlow experience just as she did. “Mount Mercy educated me so that I could pursue my career of

Georgia Lundberg Navaretta ’63

nursing and created in me my love of volunteering which has brought me much happiness,” says Navaretta. Together, the Navarettas created the Georgia Lundberg Navaretta Nursing Scholarship, a need-based scholarship awarded to a full-time junior or senior female undergraduate student in nursing who demonstrates satisfactory academic progress and a commitment to pursue nursing as a profession. To this day, Navaretta remembers classmates at Mount Mercy who struggled to make ends meet. She

hopes that her gift can make a difference to those in need. “I would hate to see someone have to give up on their dream because they couldn’t afford it,” she says. Capozzi Kirr is thrilled to support students and also to spread the word about Carlow. “When you can help or encourage other people to know about your cause, that’s one of biggest benefits,” she says. “We hoped we’d be able to spread that message a little broader, and we feel very grateful that we were able to do this. We’re grateful that other people have benefited.”

THE A B I L I TY TO D RE A M CAMPU S SC H O O L PA RE N T WORKS TO I NFUSE C L A SS I CA L MUS IC I NTO TH E C U RRI C U LU M

As a young girl growing up in Lebanon, Nayla Abu Hamad was surrounded by classical music. After a long day at work, her father would return home, turn on the stereo, and relax as symphonies filled the household. His passion for music became hers, as well. Today, as a mother of three living in Pittsburgh, Abu Hamad sought to instill this same passion in her own three children. However, while also trying to keep up with their homework, extracurricular activities, and her position as an Arabic instructor at the University of Pittsburgh, she really didn’t have time. How was she to make her music theirs? So Abu Hamad found a new approach—one that would not only benefit her own children but also their peers at The Campus School of Carlow University. When she heard out about the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s Meet the Maestro program, which infuses the study of classical music into all aspects of the curriculum, she knew it was a perfect fit. Working with Campus School Executive Director and Head of School

14 LE GACY 2 0 1 1 / 2 0 1 2

Michelle Peduto and the school’s music staff, Abu Hamad has been the driving force behind what is already a great success. As one of only five Pittsburgh schools to partner with the program this academic year, the school is filled with classical music in ways Abu Hamad never could have imagined. Meet the Maestro is led by violinist Monique Mead, director of special programs for the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO). Early in September 2012, Mead began working directly with Campus School teachers and students, as well as Carlow School of Education student teachers, giving them direct contact with the Symphony’s music director, Manfred Honeck. “With this program, I feel the excitement and dedication that Monique has for music. I feel she can give students the ability to dream. This is what classical music can do,” says Abu Hamad. To kick off the musical excitement on campus, students took part in an interactive assembly on Friday, September 14, featuring Carnegie Mellon University’s C Street Brass Quintet, in residence at Carnegie Mellon University, and partners in the Meet the Maestro program. One of the program’s highlights was discounted admission to

the PSO’s September 23, 2012, performance of Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Opus 95 “From the New World,” Richard Strauss’ Orchestral Songs, and Strauss’ Concerto No. 1 in E-flat major for Horn and Orchestra. Students and their families were also treated to a special pre-concert reception with Maestro Honeck and enjoyed Campus School seventhgrade student Hannah Kwiecincksi’s performance of “Goin’ Home,” accompanied by Campus School Music Teacher Anna Sproul. “This is a great way for the school to bond through an experience that can be enjoyed on many different levels,” says Mead. “The program has high energy through the caliber of musicians involved, and it adds to their natural joy of learning.” Mead is conducting workshops throughout The Campus School. During social studies class, students learn about Antonín Dvořák’s life while listening to violin excerpts. In math class, they manipulate note values, as Dvořák did, creating themes that sound different, but which are actually based upon a common denominator. The musical excitement continued on campus this November, as Carlow School of Education students assisted budding middle school


musicians as they simulated a piece called “Mothership” by young New York composer Mason Bates using percussion, keyboards, and iPads. The goal, says Mead, is to have the piece performed by the PSO. Abu Hamad is thrilled by these musical endeavors, and also by her ability to truly make a difference. “In Lebanon, we have a culture, most of the time, where you feel you cannot change anything. Here, I learned, if you persevere, if you just give time and effort, you can get somewhere,” she says. She recalls her first visit to enroll her eldest son, Samir, at The Campus School upon moving to Pittsburgh from Lebanon in 2005. “I felt the spirit of Carlow through Sister Mary Paul,” recalls Abu Hamad, “and I feel that same spirit today working with Mrs. Peduto and everyone at Carlow. It’s a special place.” Today, Samir is a student at Georgetown University, and Abu Hamad’s two younger children, Sari and Sarah, are in fifth and eighth grades, respectively. Abu Hamad says she’ll do anything to help the school. “There is a wonderful atmosphere at Carlow,” she says. “You feel like it’s one big family. All one. And we’re working for one main purpose. I am honored to give my kids my time.”

When Ann Young Pontiere graduated from high school, she attended college at Mount Mercy, made possible in part because of a scholarship she received from the Sisters of Mercy. After graduating with a sociology degree in 1947, Young Pontiere enjoyed a long career in the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency. As a way to thank the university that provided the foundation for her fulfilling career, Young Pontiere made a donation to Carlow University. She hoped her scholarship would honor the generosity of the Sisters of Mercy as well as her parents. “I wanted to contribute something in the memory of my parents who sacrificed a great deal for me to have an education. I also wanted to give thanks to the college for giving me scholarships to get a college education. And, my third purpose was that I wanted to help someone from Sacred Heart Parish,” Young Pontiere says. As a one-time member of the Sacred Heart Parish, Young Pontiere wanted to enable others to obtain a Carlow education.

graduates from Oakland Catholic High School, specifically from the Sacred Heart Parish. Young Pontiere believed that Sacred Heart was as integral a part in making her the woman she is as Carlow was. But she isn’t the only Carlow alumna who wanted to help a student from a specific high school. Several graduates decided to support Carlow students who hailed from beloved schools or parishes. Take, for example, Haley Hopper, a sophomore biology major at Carlow who received the Penny Nikolich McKenna Oakland Catholic Scholarship, dedicated to a graduate of Oakland Catholic High School.


“Being in college is really expensive. Just being able to have that money to help pay for tuition really helped a lot because I can only work so much,” says Hopper. Much like Young Pontiere, Nikolich McKenna endowed the Oakland Catholic scholarship because she hoped to make it easier for women to access higher education: “I wanted to help young women with their education,” she says. “My experience at Carlow opened up many avenues that I was able to pursue.” Nikolich McKenna graduated in 1969 with a degree in English and a minor in theology and education, which led to a career as a teacher, principal, and director of religious education for the Diocese of Pittsburgh. Sometimes a scholarship represents more than simply wanting to help a student from a favored high school. Martha Welsh Crane endowed the Martha Welsh Crane ’61 Scholarship as a way to help young men and women access education at Carlow, but also to recognize the successes of her high school, St. Joseph High School in Natrona Heights. “I like that an alumna can contribute to the college and help someone from her own high school at the same time,” Welsh Crane says.

Welsh Crane felt happy that St. Joseph flourished during a time when other Catholic high schools and grade schools were shuttering their doors. “I am proud of the honors received by the high school and individual students,” she adds. She also notes that she wanted to make a meaningful gift to Carlow as it had been 50 years since she graduated with a degree in math. She spent her career teaching and working as a system analyst and she knows that Carlow paved the way for her successes. And those connections to parishes and schools live on—even as some institutions no longer exist. Rita Blieszner ’46 gave money to start the Blieszner Family Endowed Scholarship before she passed away in 2009. The scholarship supported students graduating from Oliver High School in Pittsburgh’s North Side neighborhood. Today, though Oliver has closed its doors, the scholarship will help graduates of Perry High School who demonstrate academic excellence and financial need as well as a desire to continue their education. In this way, Blieszner’s generosity will support generations of ambitious students for years to come.

The Callaghan Society Members Callaghan Society members are part of the Carlow University tradition that began in 1822, when the Callaghans, the adoptive parents of Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy, made her the sole heir of their estate in Dublin. At that moment they could not possibly have imagined the enormous good, which would result from their bequest over the next two centuries. Today, legacy commitments from Callaghan Society members through their wills, trusts, or other estate gifts ensure the vitality and development of Carlow University and its Mercy-based mission from one generation to the next. List is complete as of November 5, 2012. New members are listed in italics.

“Last year, I became a member of the Callaghan Society. When I think of my four years at Carlow, this is where I blossomed; where I grew up. I didn’t know it at the time, but Carlow had a tremendous impact on my life: academically, personally, and professionally. From my professors who were genuinely interested in my advancement, to my involvement either on stage or behind the scenes in Carlow’s theatre productions, or to the career jump-start Carlow gave me in the spring of my senior year when I was encouraged to pursue—and obtained— my first professional job as the producer for the Jack Bogut show on KDKA Radio, Carlow truly nurtured me every step of the way. I made a bequest to Carlow University as a thank you for all that I experienced while I was a student and with the hope that my gift might help other young girls to blossom and grow here at Carlow.”

—Lois Reid Folino ’78
