I absolutely know we can be THE high school of choice for girls in the region.
– BONNIE COTTER, PRESIDENT
A word from our
ear Carondelet Community,
The theme of this Carondeletter might be: legacy, pride and promise. We have the opportunity to reflect with gratitude on the inspiring ministry and legacy of our dear Sister Eleanor, CSJ and to look forward to our school’s promising future through the eyes of our dynamic president, Bonnie Cotter. Sandwiched between these “bookends” are stories of our students, faculty and alumnae that make us all proud.
young women with an exceptional foundation of learning and character on which they can rely the rest of their lives. THE high school for girls? Absolutely! I invite you to cherish the legacy, enjoy the Carondelet of today and look forward to a very bright future for “our girls” and our school. With gratitude,
The article on page 4 captures some of the emotion and gratitude evident at the on-campus celebration of Sister Eleanor’s life on August 19. The presence of so many Sisters of St. Joseph and hundreds of alumnae and friends at that event reminded us all of the generations of Carondelet students touched by Sister Eleanor and all our CSJ Sisters. I left the service inspired to carry forward to future generations the vision of Sister E and the charism of “unifying love” of the entire CSJ community. Our president’s dedication to that vision and charism shines through her responses in the interview starting on page 6. As our cover says, Bonnie believes that Carondelet can be THE high school for girls in our region. It is inspiring to work together with her and all our faculty and staff to provide our

A VALIANT WOMAN
he Carondelet community lost a valiant woman this summer – a spirited leader who dedicated her life’s work to educating young women, serving the dear neighbor, and sharing the CSJ charism. During her 35 years at Carondelet, Sister Eleanor Eagan, CSJ touched the lives of generations of students, their families, the women and men with whom she taught and an extensive community of fellow sisters and friends. Sister Eleanor taught Religious Studies and English and then worked in Admissions, Alumnae Relations, College Counseling and Public Relations, founding the Carondeletter – originally a four-page newsletter printed in black and white. She was also the school’s resident historian, capturing momentous occasions and everyday life on film and through her eloquent writing. At the request of former Carondelet principal and president Sister Kathy Lang, CSJ, Sister Eleanor wrote and published the 232-page book, “Valiant Women,” which recounts the first 50 years of Carondelet history. In it, she writes: “A jewel in our Province, Carondelet High School is, I believe, a special place, where everything works toward the good and where everyone serves the goal, the purpose, the mission – a Catholic school committed to leadership and service to the dear neighbor.”

Hundreds of Sister Eleanor’s loved ones attended her memorial Masses in Los Angeles and at Carondelet, and dear Sister E crafted her own necrology to be read unaltered. But her life story could not be done justice without the stories of those whose lives were made better by knowing her. President Bonnie Cotter offered her own tribute: “Sister Eleanor, there is no doubt about how much you care, nor how much you are loved. You have hundreds, thousands of daughters, and sons, too. You are a most-loved teacher. A second mom, a mentor, a true friend. You made a huge impact and left footprints on our heart. When we think of you, words like sunshine, joy, compassion and pride come to mind along with the memory of a loving smile, warm hugs and sheer kindness.” At the on-campus celebration on August 19, scores of alumnae, friends, and faculty – past and present – turned out to pay their respects and pray for the woman who has left a legacy. Following the Mass, guests filled the Inner Court to share memories and reconnect with each other and with Sister Kathy, who made a special trip up from Los Angeles to join in the tribute. Thank you to all who shared photos and memories of Sister Eleanor, and who joined us for this celebration. To those who could not make it, we certainly felt your love.

A CANDID CONVERSATION WITH DAVE MACMILLAN, CHIEF ADVANCEMENT OFFICER
“To me, the sisterhood is part of that unifying love for each other…”
– BONNIE COTTER PRESIDENT
he Carondeletter recently found time on President Bonnie Cotter’s busy schedule to ask her about the school’s students, faculty, Catholic identity, strategic priorities and more. Bonnie’s relentless commitment to excellence for “our girls” was evident in her straightforward answers. How would you describe today’s Carondelet students? Courageous, composed, confident, eager to learn more, to tackle what’s ahead of them. Also, their caring for the community and each other is really palpable. What does “sisterhood” mean at our school? Sisterhood is a great word, because it means more than just being a sister to each other. It’s about being a sister of the world, about going forward and looking outward. I connect sisterhood to the CSJ charism of service to the dear neighbor and how there’s a unity and a unifying force of God that runs through all things. To me, the sisterhood is part of that unifying love for each other and for those people and things that are around us. You claim that Carondelet can become “THE high school of choice for all girls in the region.” Is this really possible? I absolutely know we can be THE high school of choice for girls in the region. We are in a unique position to change the trajectory of young women – in how they view themselves, how they relate with the world, how they see their future, their opportunities – we can impact that. On top of that, we have a spiritual grounding that makes our girls much more
6 | Carondeletter | Carondelet High School | Fall 2017
aware of the world around them and their duty to be a force for good. Developing caring young women with the sky as the limit… you don’t get any better than that and that makes us the best.
An impressive group of science and technology leaders is teaming with Carondelet faculty to develop STEM and Innovation facilities and curricula. What do you expect will come out of this effort? Incredible relationships and partnerships that will provide more exposure for the school, for one thing. People in tech industries, both in Silicon Valley and throughout the Bay Area are learning about our school and our amazing kids. They will be able to provide entrée for internships for our students as well as mentorships for our faculty. In addition to science, technology, engineering and math components, we envision innovative programs in creative design, leadership skills, project management, and entrepreneurship. These partnerships will help us create all that and ensure that it is real-world and relevant. Are we prioritizing STEM over other disciplines? Not at all. The cross-disciplinary, hands-on approach we are taking is going to be highly effective across the board and requires the humanities and the arts to be fully integrated in all learning. A new development in science has ethical implications. Developing new technologies requires creativity and problem-solving skills. The real world requires bringing disparate ideas from across all disciplines to bear in creating new solutions to the world’s problems. You believe that diversity and inclusion are marks of an excellent education. Why? Understanding how others think is essential for personal growth. Having classmates from other backgrounds challenges us to look at things a different way and reflect on our own thinking. It also helps all of us to understand that every action, every word has an impact that resonates beyond
just ourselves. What we say and do has a ripple effect that extends well beyond the immediate circumstance.
What have you found to be the biggest misconceptions about Carondelet? I think two things. One is that we only serve Catholics. That is not who we are, that is not who Catholic schools are, that is not what the Sisters of St. Joseph are really all about. It’s about serving everyone but to do so from the heart and teachings of our Catholic traditions and values. The other misconception is that we are just a smaller public school with Catholic faith mixed in. In fact, we are an independent school with a high expectation that we deliver an excellent and personalized educational experience that brings out the best in each and every young woman who attends our school. That includes not only what they will come to know, but who they come to be and what they are called to do to make the world a better place. With only a few Sisters on campus, is today’s Carondelet less Catholic than it was a generation ago? Not at all. The Sisters recognize that lay leaders are now the stewards of their ministry. We are relying on the Sisters to help us learn everything we can about their charism and history so we can carry on this wonderful mission through the years ahead. Even with only a few Sisters here, we continue to live out the CSJ charism to ensure the mission of the school stays strong while also responding to the needs of the times. How do you get students and faculty to understand and buy into Cardondelet’s mission, vision and values? First of all, we try to make it very present in everything we do. We have visible symbols – the mission and vision statement and core values are posted in every classroom and all meeting Carondeletter | Carondelet High School | Fall 2017 | 7
rooms. Secondly, for our adult community, we are actually embedding these values into every job description and every performance evaluation. For our students, we embed them across our curriculum as standards for what we expect from our students. We continue to hold liturgies and daily prayer as a central focus for bringing the community together and all of our student activities and events are explicitly tied to how they further and promote our mission.
As you start your fourth year as President, what is your vision for Carondelet in these next years? My overall vision has remained steadfast—to strengthen the very core and fiber of the school in order to support the mission in such a way that, no matter what the school faces in the future, it will always be nimble and proactive and strong. That means building an organization with a deep talent pool and a culture where everybody understands and contributes to who we are in our bones.
Do you feel students who aren’t Catholic are comfortable here? I believe our Catholic values are easily embraced by people of all faiths so when students and parents from other faiths visit, I find that they do feel comfortable here. And when they actually enroll, the students feel very included. We show respect for other faiths in celebrating our Catholic Masses and in our classrooms. Faculty members would not really know which students in their class are Catholic and which are not.
What trends do you see on the horizon that Carondelet will face? The world of technology has really changed the game in education - students learn differently. Also, our graduates will need to be prepared to adapt to ever-changing career opportunities, whether they work locally, nationally or globally. Flexibility will be essential. What stays the same here, however, are our mission and the core values we believe will sustain our women no matter what they face. Will Carondelet be able to continue to recruit and retain the teachers that you’re describing as critical to our mission? First of all, I think people like to work here because we are a supportive, congenial community; we have wonderful students and wonderful colleagues. Secondly, we are competitive in our compensation. Third, and perhaps most important, is our environment in which teachers can both innovate and know they’re making a long-lasting impact on the lives of kids – that’s what drew them to education in the first place. Our principal, Kevin Cushing, is doing a great job creating this environment. When you watch our young women playing soccer, tennis, lacrosse, softball, water polo, and swimming and diving at the new Athletics Complex – what will you be thinking? I will be thinking that for over 50 years the girls didn’t have this, they had to do without. That was never okay. But our team tackled this inequity and made fixing it a priority. The community got behind it, donors got behind it and it has been full speed ahead. Within a few months the girls will have
8 | Carondeletter | Carondelet High School | Fall 2017
a beautiful new home for the next 50 years and beyond. That’s a pretty incredible testament to the school and community. Bishop Barber has expressed concern about the state of parish schools. Are you concerned about our parish schools and especially the middle school years? What can Carondelet do to help? Yes, we are concerned about the state of Catholic parish education in our region which is just a reflection of what is happening nationally. We continue to reach out and look for new ways to support and partner with the principals at our elementary and middle support schools as well as the diocese to find creative solutions. We want to help strengthen all of our Catholic education components because we are dependent on each other. What is your greatest challenge going forward? I think the greatest challenge is just that there is so much to be done. You look at the girls and it just compels you to want to give everything to them right now - to help improve this or that aspect of their Carondelet experience. We have to prioritize so we can sustain the initiatives we’re undertaking and continue to deliver the level of excellence that our girls deserve.
of alumnae, friends of the school and our past and current families to become enthusiastically engaged in building our future. As much as we love the good old days, standing still is not an option anymore. We have to look ahead to help create that future for these girls and we’re stronger when we all do come together.
“My overall vision has remained steadfast—to strengthen the very core and fiber of the school…” – BONNIE COTTER PRESIDENT
What is the role of the Board today? The trustees are really great, both the lay members and the four CSJ Sisters on the board. They have been wonderfully supportive of the direction of the school. They understand the day-to-day business side of the school and how the charism and business side need to be in sync in order to keep the mission strong. It is not easy work, but together we have achieved much and we are dedicated to moving our school continually forward. What is it that we haven’t discussed that you would want readers to know? We need to have everybody on board to keep the school strong and thriving, especially as we have fewer Sisters to help and we have these significant challenges ahead of us. We need alumnae, parents

STEM Experts Advise on
INNOVATION CENTER “My hope is that we will be able to successfully leverage all the fantastic expertise within the group across the technology, research and education sectors.” – EMILY ST. JEAN DUGGAN ‘05, STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS, GOOGLE
Advisors and students, including Elyse McClure ‘19 (above) shared their thoughts on how to create the ideal learning environment.
ow do you begin imagining the kind of science, technology and innovation center that will equip young women for careers that don’t yet exist? Ask the experts. Carondelet has recruited a diverse group of advisors from the most successful tech companies and the most respected university faculties to help design a truly unique STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and Innovation Center for students. The Advisory Council was launched at the IBM Watson Center in San Francisco this summer, and subsequent workshops with advisors, faculty and students have explored curriculum of the future and how to design flexible space for maximum innovation. “We hope the Advisory Council can help shape the vision for a truly innovative facility and curriculum that will prepare the young women of Carondelet for the world of the next 20-30 years, which will look a lot different than today,” said Jack Russi, with his wife Jodie, two of the Co-Chairs of theThis is Our Time Campaign. “This Council should also be a strong ‘connector’ to the top STEM minds and companies that can make that vision a reality.”

“The STEM Advisory Council is incredibly eager to help Carondelet become even better suited to prepare students for the type of problem-solving that is needed for college and the next generation workplace,” she said. “My hope is that we will be able to successfully leverage all the fantastic expertise within the group across the technology, research and education sectors.”
CHRIS BROOKS • University of San Francisco
Carondelet science teacher and inventor Randy Grishaber brings his background in industry as well as his classroom experience to the council. “What is so exciting about the dynamics of this group is that it is rich in ideas and savvy to the challenges of implementing necessary change to help Carondelet move forward well into the future,” he said. President Bonnie Cotter and Principal Kevin Cushing believe the Council will provide added benefits, including internships for students and professional mentorship opportunities for faculty. They expect Carondelet to emerge as a national leader in STEM and Innovation learning for young women and that the role of the Council will come to be recognized as a best practice. The Carondelet community can look forward to seeing concept drawings of the new facility in January 2018.

Carondelet Athletics Complex
AQUATICS CENTER The new Aquatics Center now bears the name of Natalie Coughlin, Carondelet’s Cougar alumna from the Class of 2000, who is a three-time Olympian and generous humanitarian with a heart of gold. Coughlin has earned 12 Olympic medals in her career, and she will be featured prominently at the new athletics complex, with a largerthan-life image of her diving into the pool at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Her image and athletic accomplishments will also be displayed in Carondelet’s Hall of Fame, to be unveiled in spring 2018.
s of press time, the Carondelet Athletics Complex is just weeks away from welcoming our Cougar athletes. The 6-acre facility will be home to seven Carondelet sports programs and will include a regulation soccer/lacrosse field, softball field, 10-lane competition swimming and diving pool, six tennis courts, and a newly remodeled student center. Fifty years in the making, the new athletics complex will provide hundreds of Carondelet athletes with their first home field advantage. The former Club Sport Valley Vista has been transformed into a vibrant second campus in just 11 months. The pool and student center are now complete, as is the custom-designed art and landscaping for the Natalie Coughlin Aquatics Center, Jeffery Field and the Gratitude Wall honoring donors. The final phase of construction will see the artificial turf installation for our soccer/lacrosse and softball fields. A series of grand opening events will kick off in January 2018 and include a ribbon-cutting ceremony and facility blessing, inaugural sporting events for our Cougar teams, and our first-ever athletics Hall of Fame induction ceremony. We can’t wait to see you there! Go, Cougars!

Carondelet’s Anderson ‘19
ON USA U-17 ROSTER
Just after completing her sophomore year,
goalkeeper Angelina Anderson ‘19 was called up to the U.S.’s Under-17 Women’s National Soccer Team. Over the next year, the squad will compete in several international events with the goal of qualifying for the U-17 FIFA World Cup in Uruguay. Anderson is one of a pair of goalkeepers on the 20-player roster for the USA squad. Over the summer, Anderson made her first international starts versus Canada and China, tallying eight saves total. Just weeks after starting her junior year at Carondelet, Anderson and the USA squad traveled to Portland to take on England’s U-17 team. The United States’ team defeated their English counterparts 6-1 and 6-2 in their two-game match up. Anderson earned her third international start in the first win of the series.

$15 MILLION PLEDGE
Benefactor Lisa Hofmann Morgan publicly announced in February that The Hofmann Family Foundation was pledging $15 million to Carondelet – half of which will support need-based financial scholarships for students; half of which will support the construction of a new Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) Innovation center. “This really is a historic occasion for my family, my daughters and the Carondelet community at large. It is my hope that our family’s philanthropy will inspire others to do more, be more and imagine more for all the young women here at Carondelet and in our community,” said Ms. Morgan, whose five daughters graduated from Carondelet.

Thank You &
FAREWELL The Carondelet community bids a fond farewell to four long-time teachers and staff members who retired in May after years of dedicated service to our students and families. We wish them well in their future endeavors. DR. MARCY FOX | Religious Studies Teacher – 27 years “I am enjoying every minute [of retirement],” says Dr. Fox. “I am taking art classes and am considering a graphic novel in the future… Also, I am in hiking groups and my two book clubs in which I have been a member for over 25 years. I am also having fun promoting my youngest sister’s mystery novel, Redemption of the Cube Dweller. She has based the main character on me!”
KATHY HARRIS | Educational Learning Support Specialist – 39 years “I love spending afternoons with my dad who just celebrated his 93rd birthday,” says Ms. Harris. “I am grateful for the additional time we have. Along with [my dog] Maggie Mae, I’m still an active member of Molly’s Miracle Mutt’s, a therapy dog group started by alum Molly Norris ‘14 and continues with the leadership of her sister, Abigail ’18. I also treasure my quiet time at home reading, gardening, and less-quiet time with family and friends.”
STEPHANIE MONDELLO | Religious Studies Teacher – 10 Years “The best news is: not much is happening,” says Ms. Mondello. “I’ve relocated back to Illinois where I’m enjoying being closer to my grandkids. I’ve started taking classes in Tai Chi and Yoga—things I’ve been wanting to take up for years. I’m also enjoying hiking three miles a day through prairie meadowlands. Life is good.”
NEVILLE SUSICH | College Counselor – 17 years “I have learned that retirement is mostly about the glorious gift of added time to spend with friends, family and also for having fun!” said Mrs. Susich. “It has also been about figuring out how to redirect and refocus my time going forward. I spent the beginning of August at the University of Redlands as a volunteer college coach for College Summit, working with underrepresented first-generation high school students from south central Los Angeles. I will continue as a holistic reader for the University of California, as a College Advisory Board Member for Drexel University, and as a member of the local and national college admission advisory boards.”

”From the deepest love we showed one another on Kairos to the resounding cheers at every rally, I have learned what it means to love loudly. May we show this heart to everyone we meet, and always remember that love is the evidence.” – OLIVIA CONTE, CO-VALEDICTORIAN

Alumna of the Year ANGELA SCHROETER ‘88
clean water advocate in some of California’s most polluted communities, Angela (Varian) Schroeter ’88 has spent her career fighting for environmental justice and helping disadvantaged communities. This spring, Angela was honored with the 2017 Alumna of the Year award recognizing her as a woman of heart, faith and courage.
Nominated by her sister Skye Hayworth ’91, Angela works as a supervising engineering geologist with the State Water Resources Control Board. Among her accomplishments, she has successfully worked to expand requirements for irrigated agriculture to protect groundwater in the Central Coast area of California from further contamination. “We are so proud to see her living the Carondelet mission and making meaningful changes in our world,” said classmate Michelle Missaggia Daly ‘88. When she returned to Carondelet to receive her award during the senior assembly, Angela addressed the school’s 800 students, saying: “I am excited to see so many young women, so capable and full of energy, ready to change the world. Our future is very literally in your hands.” Congratulations, Angela!

WHERE ARE THEY NOW? LESLIE SHAW KLINGER ‘74 In August 2016, I made my Life Promises to the Order of Preachers, becoming a Third Order Dominican. Following in the footsteps of St. Martin de Porres and St. Catherine of Siena, I get to live in the world according to the Rule of St. Dominic. To live in a way that shows the world that we Catholics know Truth is a great privilege. I retired from Contra Costa County in 2017 after 29 years of service—but I have not stopped working! I am now the Coordinator of Children’s Catechesis for St Joseph’s Parish School of Religion. While I have been a Catechist for RCIA for over 15 years, to get to actively help shape the next generations of Catholics is a great privilege. I am blessed. This year I celebrated 25 years of continuous sobriety. I continue to work with men and women caught in the bondage of alcoholism and credit the Sacramental and Liturgical Life of the Church with helping me stay sober, one day at a time. None of this would have been possible without the strong Catholic foundation I received at both Christ the King and Carondelet. I am not afraid, today, to declare myself Catholic Out Loud. For that I am grateful and I challenge you all to grab onto your Catholic faith and live it. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, is better! KRISTIE ABBOTT-WALKER ‘75 I have been busy with my first grandson, Lochlan Vincent Walker. He is, of course, beautiful! In 2015, I opened my training studio, Personal Training Team, in Concord. I offer group training sessions and one-on-one, too. I love it so much; helping other people get healthy, stay healthy and strong, and improve their mental and emotional health has been incredibly gratifying. I am grateful to the Carondelet community for its support, especially members of the Class of 1975, who have been unwavering. I hope to see other Carondelet alums in my studio. We give the gift of health back to the community! TANIA HANSON-DE YOUNG ‘75 After taking some time off to travel, I graduated from St. Mary’s College in 1980. I married Wallace De Young from DLS in 1982 and worked for a number of years in the import business, then in administration for a food manufacturer. I eventually stayed home to raise our two children. I initially volunteered regularly at their schools, but gradually shifted to running various
38 | Carondeletter | Carondelet High School | Fall 2017
outreach programs through our church, with Adopt A Family Bikes being one that I started. I became involved with a start-up non-profit, the Gretta Foundation (TGF), and have volunteered since its inception over eight years ago; I currently serve on the board of directors. TGF provides incountry nursing and midwifery scholarships to impoverished people in Uganda. We currently work exclusively with the Uganda Catholic Medical Bureau, which runs 13 schools and over 32 clinics and hospitals. I have traveled twice to Uganda, most recently in 2016. Many of our scholars are survivors of Joseph Kony’s 20-year reign of terror in Northern Uganda. KAREN RATTO WHOOLEY ‘85 I am a Washington State-based, award-winning crochet author and designer. I recently self-published a collection of shawl designs, my 20th book! In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my husband, David, and our college-age children. I love NFL football, ‘80s rock music, gardening, and enjoying the Pacific Northwest. PAULA HOELPER SKOCZEN ‘90 I was originally known as Jennifer Hoelper, but I changed both my first and last names. I am very glad that I was in Chorus during my senior year, because only two weeks after I joined my present church, Diamond Bar United Church of Christ, the choir director asked me to join the choir. I’m glad to say that I’m still in the choir two years later! We get a nice long summer break from choir, but those of us who want to can also sing for the special music at the services in the summer as well. I will be going on the church’s Women’s Retreat and I will bring my church music with me as I did last year. My pastor is a sweet woman who is glad that I’m going to her church. I will also most likely be reading the Scripture, because I did volunteer after one of my fellow parishioners suggested that I do that, too! JENNIFER BENTON DEAN ‘91 Wow! It had been a long time since I last was in the Carondelet gym. I played basketball all four years and I don’t think I had been back since! My daughter Zoe plays 5th grade basketball at Christ the King and her babysitter, Laura McFarland ‘17, suggested to Zoe that we go see the Carondelet basketball team play. What a great game against Archbishop Mitty: we were hooked! We brought Zoe’s whole team back the following week and the girls loved it. Athletic Director Caitlin Main ‘05 asked Zoe’s coach if the team
KRISTIE ABBOTT-WALKER ‘75
KAREN RATTO WHOOLEY ‘85
would play a little showcase scrimmage during half-time at the following week’s senior game. The girls jumped all over that and had the time of their lives! I know that playing on the Carondelet court with her team will be a night that neither Zoe, my husband Anil, nor I will ever forget. Oh, and I got a surprise when I discovered my senior team’s name is still painted on the storage room wall 26 years later! Go Cougars! GINA MINDER-MALDONADO ‘92 I don’t have the best memories from my grade school years. Then, I was lucky enough to go to Carondelet. It was the first time I felt that teachers actually cared about me

CAITLIN LAWSON MAIN ‘05
being more than just a name on a roster. I was pushed to be the best that I could be. These “champion” teachers motivated me to do more than I thought I could. It is because of the teachers that I had at Carondelet and De La Salle that I became a teacher. I am so honored to say that my teaching journey has led me to be chosen as Contra Costa County’s 2016-2017 Teacher of the Year! It is an honor to represent not only my school and my district, but Carondelet as well! CAITLIN LAWSON MAIN ‘05 CARONDELET ATHLETIC DIRECTOR Caitlin (Lawson) married Dan Main on June 24, 2017, in Walnut Creek.

CARONDELET ALUMNAE - WHERE ARE THEY NOW (CONTINUED)
COURTNEY DREW CALON ‘06 Last year, I married my best friend, Robert Calon DLS ‘06 (formerly Robert Caples,) in Park City, UT. It was a long journey to get to where we are today, but—of course—it was all worth it. Before we got married, we decided to choose a last name to take for our new family. We chose “Calon,” a Welsh word meaning “heart,” that figuratively means “one’s innermost being, soul.” Now we live together in North Portland with our two cats, Aladdin and Ziggy. NICOLE CRENSHAW ‘08 I graduated from UC Irvine with my PhD in Informatics this year. I’m now working with Blizzard Entertainment as a UX Researcher. CHELSEA RUSSELL SPENSER ‘09 My husband and I are excited to announce the birth of our daughter, Emily Anne Spenser, on February 18, 2017!
COURTNEY DREW CALON ‘06
BRITTANY STICH ‘10 After earning my BA, MEd and MBA from Stanford, I co-founded Guild Education. Guild helps employers offer Education as a Benefit to their employees, enabling HR leaders to turn their education cost centers into a positive ROI by offering a range of programs from GEDs through bachelor’s and master’s degrees. We were recently honored to be named to Forbes’ “30 Under 30 for Education”! What a foundation Carondelet, my family and the community provided for me! STEPHANIE STEINBRECHER ‘12 I graduated from Scripps College in Claremont, California, in 2016 with a BA in English and a minor in Environmental Analysis. Since graduating from Carondelet five years ago, I’ve lived in Washington D.C.; Siem Reap, Cambodia; Steamboat Springs, Colorado; and, currently, San Francisco. I work for a boutique management consulting firm in the city. I returned to Carondelet to see my sister, Sam, graduate this year. My own fondest memories from CHS are the moments of genuine connection I made—to my peers at Kairos, to my English teachers who shaped my interest in the discipline, to the broader community on Winton Drive and beyond that continues to inform my values and worldview. REBECCA VILLEGAS ‘12 I have been a loyal Sun Devil at Arizona State University since 2012. I have earned both my Bachelor’s and

Master’s degrees in the past five years. For both degrees, I studied justice with emphases in economic and social justice. I am passionate about helping people and bettering the society that we live in. I have been interning for a Congressman in Phoenix since January of this year, and from that experience, I realize that I want to pursue a career in constituent services or justice-related case work. Right now, I am in the final stages of interviewing to work in New Orleans with an AmeriCorps program. SYDNEY CHING ‘13 I graduated in 2016 from the University of California, Irvine, as a Psychology major with a minor in Asian American Studies. The day after I graduated, I returned to the Bay Area and began work at the UC Berkeley Career Center. Back to school I go, though! In the fall of 2017 I began graduate school at San Francisco State’s Industrial/Organizational Psychology Master’s Program. Thank you, Carondelet, for preparing me for college and beyond. Due to my strong educational foundation, I enjoyed college and can pursue my goal of grad school. ROSEMARY COOK ‘13 I graduated from St. Mary’s College in May 2017 and was awarded the De La Salle award which is SMC’s top honor, given annually to the graduating senior with the highest record for scholarship and general excellence. I am also the recipient of awards in each of the two departments in which I have earned degrees: the Jane Addams Award in Sociology and the Brother Leo Meehan Award in English.
ROSEMARY COOK ‘13
KRISTINA WATERS ‘13 I graduated from Loyola Marymount University this year with majors in Communication Studies and French, and I recently accepted a position at Universal Music Group as a Digital Marketing Coordinator. I spent two years working for UMG in the College & Lifestyle Marketing department and I am looking forward to beginning my full-time career at their office in Santa Monica. My fondest memory of Carondelet is being a part of Chorale and Concert Choir. It was the best part of my day and participating in those groups taught me that music is something that fulfills me in ways that other things cannot. I credit Mrs. Amy Way for helping me discover my passion for the music industry. TURNER WILEY ‘13 I graduated with my bachelor’s in biology from Mount Holyoke College in the spring and in the winter I started my master’s at Johns Hopkins School of Nursing! I will be graduating in 2018 as a Registered Nurse. I plan to work for a few years and then return to school again to become a Nurse Practitioner. BLAKE HAVERTY ‘14 After playing for three years at Carondelet, I won a golf scholarship to Cal State Monterey. I recently won the Maverick Invitational in Colorado by shooting a 71. Thank you, Carondelet, for giving me an opportunity to excel in life!

KINDNESS & GENEROSITY BY MICHELE (EGGERS) LAGO ‘97 Jennifer (Eggers) Attenasio ‘97 (left) pictured here with her twin sister Michele (Eggers) Lago ‘97.
ennifer (Eggers) Attenasio ‘97 lived a love-filled and dynamic life that truly reflected the core values of Carondelet’s mission of heart, faith and courage because of what she accomplished, but more importantly, the values-based way she lived. Having been a key member of Cardonelet’s varsity basketball and track teams, Jenny continued her athletic pursuits as a high jumper on University of Oregon’s prestigious track & field team. She graduated from Oregon’s Honors College as valedictorian of the Advertising Department. Post college, an internship brought her to New York City where she made her home for the last 17 years. Pursuing a career focused in writing and branding, she most recently was an executive at Siegel & Gale Branding Agency. In addition to her successful career, Jenny was a published writer, a skilled photographer and completed numerous triathlons, including two Ironmen competitions. She also was a world traveler, adventuring to places such as Cuba, Russia and Switzerland. Jenny took the time to stay in close touch with family and friends, and despite a full-life, put others

first. For the last four years, she was a mentor in the I-Mentor program, guiding an at-risk girl from Harlem through high school and the college application process. This girl is now the first in her family to go to college. Two years ago, Jenny married Pat at a beautiful ceremony in Brooklyn, NY. On January 30, 2017 Jenny gave birth to their first baby, Edward “Teddy” Michael Attenasio. Tragically, two hours later, Jenny suffered a catastrophic pulmonary embolism. Even in the darkness of her death, Jenny brought light to five people whose lives were saved because she was an organ donor. Jenny was the epitome of kindness and generosity in her everyday actions, so it is fitting that she would offer this incredible gift as she left the world. To read more about how her organ donation saved other people’s lives, please visit: CarondeletHS.org/Alumnae.
