Work by Dragana Jurisic curated by Amy Stevens. CFEVA’s Travel Grant Program helps its Visual Artist Fellowship Alumni take advantage of opportunities involving travel that could have a significant and positive impact on their work. This year’s recipients visited destinations in Ireland and France. Amy Stevens is presenting images that are the result of a collaboration with four photographers that she met in Ireland during her Travel Grant opportunity. Each week one photographer would post an image on-line, on a blog created specifically for the project, and then the next photographer would provide a photographic response. This process repeated itself, with one image per week being presented, and resulted in the current exhibition. The title of the blog – (it’s kind of like) telephone – refers to the children’s game of Telephone, Operator, or Whisper Down the Lane. In addition to Amy, the four photographers involved in this visual banter are Kate Nolan, Mandy O’Neill, Dragana Jurisic, and Ăšna Spain. In keeping with his long-standing interest in the visual possibilities of comics, John Karpinski attended the annual Angouleme International Comics Festival in Angouleme, France, as part of his Travel Grant. The trip inspired the artist to create his series Memory Play, in which he explores the possible history of play in specific locations from his childhood. In his own words, the artist describes the series: “In these places, we battled and triumphed. At times, we looted. Here, I married at least once and I was never Robin. Spells were cast and experiments were conducted to make us something other than human. For at least one week, I could not stop dying. Lava and quicksand awaited us, always a step away. There was the slow realization that invincibility also proved to be a potent antidote for fun. Through it all, we remained oblivious to the universes of adventures and imaginings that had transpired before our arrival, in these places.â€? Amy Stevens is an American artist living in Pennsylvania and an alumna of CFEVA’s Visual Artist Fellowship program. She earned a MFA in Photography from Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia, and a BFA in Photography/Studio Art from Arizona State University. She has participated in both group and solo shows in major US cities as well as Canada, Ireland, China and Lithuania. Stevens has notably shown in the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Delaware Art Museum, Jen Bekman Gallery in New York and the ShiJiaZhuang Art Museum in China. Amy’s work is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, The Cleveland Art Museum and The Beaverbrook Art Gallery in New Bruns-

As the Archdiocese encouraged elementary school walkathon traditions, students from 4th through 8th grade would take a bus ride into Philadelphia to walk together with other Catholic students in uniform proudly representing their school through the River Drive circuit. Shortly thereafter, school administrators involved realized the best place for the students to make a lasting impression and experience this fine tradition was to bring the walkathon home.

Every student makes a difference in the walk while generating enthusiastic school spirit which builds friendship and the sense of community that maintains the well deserved ‘small school – big heart’ theme. The top place awards are given to those students who raised the most funds with 1st place going to: Roman Nepucomenco (1st grade) and his sister Mia Nepucomenco (KB). Second place winner: Paige McNally and 3rd place winners: Tierney Ryan (grade 3B) and Quinn Ryan (grade 2). Fourth place winner was Mikey Petrucci (8th grade).

Representatives for Brooke Tocci’s third grade, Robert Atlass and Wells Flinn, get ready to place their class boat in the pool. very year right before Thanksgiving, Haverford School third-graders learn the story of the Mayflower. A more recent part of the tradition is a coordinated science project in Bill Palmer’s science class where each of three thirdgrade sections build their own Mayflower boats and then sail them in the School’s swimming pool. The project allows Palmer to teach concepts such as the study of matter in all three states, as well as buoyancy, displacement, and celestial navigation. For the latter, he sets up an inflatable classroom planetarium that his students crawl into to learn about the stars. Each boat’s mast was attached by guide hooks to weighted fishing lines that kept each of the three boats in their lanes. The boys aided the process by using three fans. As their classmates cheered, the wind pushed the boats across the pool. This year, all three classes’ boats were winners because they all stayed afloat as they were propelled across the pool and all three made it to the finish line.

great composers’ dreams and imaginations, sorrows and fears.” Also featured in the evening concert is 14-year-old cellist Alex Wu, who has been studying at the Nelly Berman School since the age of 6, taking two-hour lessons per week, as well as participating in chamber music groups. “Even with everything else: schoolwork, sports and friends, music is still an important part of my life,” Alex said. “Just like Rachmaninoff once said ‘music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music.’” Alex was a concerto competition winner and a featured soloist with the Bucks County Symphony Orchestra and the Ambler Symphony Orchestra in 2013. Award-winning pianist Jordan Hurly, age 15, who heard about the Nelly Berman School from her native South Africa, will also be performing. After winning competitions in Estonia, South Africa, and the Czech Republic, as well as performing as a soloist with the Johannesburg Symphony and Philharmonic Orchestras at the age of 13, Jordyn and her family decided to move to the United States so that Jordyn could advance her music studies at the Nelly Berman School and attend the Agnes Irwin School for Girls. The concerts will take place on Saturday, December 14 at 7 p.m. at St Luke’s Church, 568 Montgomery Avenue, in Bryn Mawr. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children. Please call 610-896-5105 or email nbsmusic@comcast.net to purchase and reserve your seat for this exciting event. All proceeds benefit the school’s scholarship program.

he Malvern Retreat House presented its annual St. Joseph the Worker Medal to Dr. Rosalie Mirenda, president of Neumann University, on November 10, 2013. Dr. Mirenda is the first woman in the 100year history of the Retreat House to receive the award. “You were selected by our committee to receive this award due to your exemplary life of faith and service to the Church and Community,” wrote Retreat House President James Fitzsimmons in a letter to Mirenda. Dr. Mirenda became president of Neumann University in July of 1996. Since she became president, the total enrollment tripled (from less than 900 to almost 3000), the campus has expanded from 14 to 68 acres, new academic programs were added (including four doctorates), athletic teams have grown from 9 to 21, and fully wired residence halls have been built to accommodate 850 students. Dr. Mirenda is committed to the Catholic The Malvern Retreat House presented its Franciscan mission of the University, which annual St. Joseph the Worker Medal to Dr. is based on the belief that knowledge, while Rosalie Mirenda, president of Neumann valuable in itself, is best used in the service University, on November 10, 2013. of others. She has enhanced this distinctive identity, taking great delight in sharing her Catholic faith, beliefs and wisdom with others, both as a writer and as a speaker. She serves on the board of the World Meeting of Families 2015, Inc., and served as Chair of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary’s Task Force on College. She was appointed by the late Bishop Joseph McFadden to the Ex Corde Ecclesiae Working Group for the Committee on Catholic Education, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and is a member of the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities. Dr. Mirenda has been recognized by a number of organizations. She is receiving the Gary Papa Award (2013) from the Delaware County Community Foundation, and has received the Sons of Italy Distinguished Achievement Award (2013), the Sourin Award (2012) from the Catholic Philopatrian Literary Society, the Catholic Graduate Hall of Fame Award (2011) from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, and many others. Dr. Mirenda earned her Ph.D. from Widener University, her MSN from the University of Pennsylvania, and her B.S. in Nursing from Villanova University. She is married to Anthony D. Mirenda. They have three adult children and five grandchildren.
