“Find a need and fill it” Ruth Stafford Peale’s simple yet profound directive has been embraced by generations of CSG students. When perusing Meditations of the Heart, which outlines All School programs dating back to 1908, one finds interfaith services dedicated to serving others. Although the notion of service has changed over time, it could not be more important than it is today. As Gregory Smith and David Sobel explain in the Spring 2013 issue of Independent School magazine, making connections between that which occurs in classrooms and the lives students lead in their communities is crucial not only to the lives of our students, but also to the world in which we live. Acknowledging that US citizens have become more isolated from one another over the past several decades, Smith and Sobel suggest that “…community-based learning can serve as one antidote to this isolation by taking young people into neighborhoods, workplaces, agencies, and city council meetings where they can interact with adults and see themselves as fellow citizens with shared responsibilities…” For this reason and others, Columbus School for Girls provides many opportunities for students to work in the Columbus community and beyond, where they identify and seek to solve problems. As you will see in the pages of this issue of Forte et Gratum, students in the Program for Young Children all the way through Upper School are working with their teachers to make a difference in the world by serving others. From collecting books for Reach Out and Read in the PYC and Lower School to

a service trip to Guatemala during Senior May Program, CSG students are empowered to contribute to the community both meaningfully and globally. As the students acknowledge, the opportunity to help others affects them in ways they could not have imagined when they began their projects. Embedding the transformational impact of service in our classrooms has a lasting impact on CSG girls. As they experience the enduring effects associated with identifying and filling needs, our students often internalize this message and seek ways to make a difference independently.

in Cape Coast, Ghana. Katie traveled to Africa, built these laptops and the servers to run them and then taught students how to use and maintain the computers. She reflects on all that she learned on this service trip in her blog technologyforghana.weebly.com. The scope and scale of Katie’s effort to make a difference is extraordinary, but it is not surprising. Students at CSG internalize the ethos of service to others, and because of the support of such dedicated, like-minded teachers as Ms. Murakami, they are empowered to make a difference in the world through service. Certainly this stance is more than a learned behavior: it is a way of being for CSG alumnae. Service is one of the many enduring characteristics that CSG helps our students to develop. The pages of this issue of Forte et Gratum illustrate the many ways that Columbus School for Girls is developing this ethos of service today.

Significantly CSG The PYC Treehouse Dedication
CSG’s Squirrel City has a new structure. On Friday May 1, 2015, the PYC Treehouse was dedicated in an official ribbon-cutting ceremony. PYC students, faculty, staff, parents, and Upper School engineering and design students gathered for the groundbreaking occasion. Throughout the 2014-2015 school year, the 4/5 class in the PYC was hard at work, collaborating with teachers, parents, the local community, and their “brain buddies” in Dr. Kevin Sweeney’s Upper School engineering class, to conceptualize and construct the brand new treehouse. “The catalyst for this project was a combination of the dynamic and movable Continued on next page

pieces of the PYC playground and the 4/5 class’ frequent trips to Cynthia’s Woods. The girls learned about and incorporated elements of Squirrel City into the treehouse,” said PYC Division Director Lynné Steinhaus. The students were encouraged to work on this project in the classroom in very unique ways. Teachers provided students with the opportunity to build digital and physical prototypes and develop dioramas of the space. “Working with the constraints of space, budget, functionality, and elements, the girls used the same project work flow that is used for the Upper School engineering class. Some work utilized input from the entire group whereas other aspects required committee work and component design teams,” explained the 4/5 class teachers. Having started in September 2014, this project involved working with the City of Columbus over Spring Break to get permits, using technology like the computer program Tinkercard to explore the differences between 2-D and 3-D to create 3-D models, conducting site visits to local tree houses like the one at Inniswood Metro Gardens, and

Fetters said, “I had thought about writing a book about different cultures or about my experience coming to America and being the only person in my third grade class who didn’t know how to read, write, or speak English.” Fetters was born in Laos and came to the United States with her family as refugees in 1979. She was ultimately inspired to write this book after teaching elementary students for nearly 20 years. She observed that many of her students experienced similar social anxieties and feelings of exclusion but for different reasons. She noticed students needing guidance with making friends, asserting themselves in a group, or just learning to express their own feelings. Her book touches on core value topics such as courage and perseverance. It is written in first person to provide

Significantly CSG A Study in Sound: Ruch Dining Room Early in the fall of 2014, Mrs. Gullett’s Form XI physics class was asked to investigate the noise levels in the Ruch Dining Room and propose solutions to make the dining experience quieter and more enjoyable for all. The class first studied the physics of light and sound waves and how they interact with each other and their physical environment. Then, groups of students started developing hypotheses that included solutions to reduce noise. The excitement grew as they started to design the best way to collect data, test their ideas, and apply what they learned in class. By December 2014, the Form XI physics class had blueprints of the Ruch Dining Room with the location of decibel meters and a method for collecting the data. Form VII girls worked with sound in science class as well. In groups, they conducted investigations, graphed the data, and compared the decibel levels produced by common
As part of their research, Upper School students went to lunch at area restaurants to collect sound levels. After analyzing their results, they found that the Ruch Dining Room, like Chipotle, averages about 80 decibels. Students pictured from left to right are: Caroline Davakis ’16, Mady Price ’16, and Emma Kemp ’16.
activities. Then students from Form IV, Form VII, and Form XI participated in data collection and analysis at an age appropriate level. The girls set up equipment at five randomly-chosen locations and recorded the sound levels during lunch over the course of several days. The girls saw that there were only a limited number of times where noise levels exceeded 85dB, which is the acceptable noise level for public dining in a school cafeteria. Where noise levels peaked, it was usually due to unusual circumstances, like when a student knocked over metal silverware, joke day, or celebrations. There was a noticeable drop-off in noise levels when students first began to eat and as student announcements began. While the results of the sound investigations are not above OSHA recommendations, the Ruch Dining Room can be uncomfortably loud for some. As a result, Middle and Upper School students proposed suggestions to make the Ruch Dining Room more sound absorbent and serene at a low cost. Physical improvements suggested by students

Congratulations, Class of 2015!
June 4, 2015 CSG COMMENCEMENT On June 4, the entire CSG community gathered to celebrate the Class of 2015 for CSG’s 117th commencement ceremony. Comprised of 43 remarkable young women, the Class of 2015 processed into the graduation tent wearing floorlength white dresses and carrying a dozen red roses—a tradition since CSG’s very first ceremony in 1899. Jennifer Ciccarelli, 13th Head of School, welcomed everyone before turning toward the graduating seniors. “Today, we celebrate you and the extraordinary achievements that have brought you to this point in your academic journey. You leave CSG well prepared for the world beyond this beautiful campus. You also possess the habits of mind and heart that ensure you will truly make a difference in the world.” Valerie Du ’15, President of Student Council, addressed the crowd through four heart-warming “letters” to her teachers, students and friends, parents, and the Class of 2015. To her classmates, she said, “The bonds we have created are unbreakable. Whenever you need some love, always know that the 42 other girls sitting here today will support you like all of you have done for me. I deeply and truly hope you have the future you’ve worked so hard for.” Cynthia Epler ’95, a recognized expert in Middle East and South Asia counterterrorism and counterinsurgency, served as the keynote speaker and offered sage advice. “CSG prepares women for anything. Truly! I’ve done five tours in Afghanistan and currently work on ISIS, and yet my junior year at CSG was still tougher than lighting the flame of Jeffersonian democracy in far flung parts of the world. “The Class of 2015 is prepared for what lies ahead with a firm foundation of knowledge and friendship. If you’re in Baghdad, Borneo, or Baltimore, know that the foundation CSG has given you will serve as a touchstone. More importantly, know that your classmates will keep you honest for the rest of your life.” As Epler concluded in her speech, “Congratulations to the Class of 2015! You made it!”

As David Drinkwater and Jacqueline Smethurst explain in the Spring 2011 issue of Independent School magazine, research demonstrates that students who engage in learning that connects classroom to community improve their academic performance as well as their leadership skills.

Columbus School for Girls has long endeavored to infuse an ethic of service and sense of community, civic, and global responsibility in all the girls. Students in every division of the school participate in service learning activities, trips, and classes. Starting in the Program for Young Children, the children engage in daily activities to encourage empathy, cultivate
accomplish tasks, and take responsibility for their environment. A perfect example was the Reach Out and Read Program. For the first time this year, the PYC partnered with the Lower School to donate nearly 1,334 books to Nationwide Children’s Hospital. In the Lower School, girls are provided with opportunities to go into the community and emotionally engage in
compassion, and instill a desire within them to make a difference to someone or something outside of themselves.
Reach out and Read Twenty-five years ago, Dr. Robert Needlman had an idea. How could doctors make literacy promotion a part of pediatric primary care particularly to children in poverty? Could they “prescribe” books to parents at every well visit so parents understood the importance of literacy as something vital to child’s growth and development? What if every child who came for a check-up received a book to read? Who could provide those books? After making some phone calls and writing letters asking for donations, Reach Out and Read was born. Today, Reach Out and Read reaches nearly four million children every year. And for the first time this year, Program for Young Children (PYC) joined Lower School to donate nearly 1,334 books to Nationwide Children’s Hospital. According to Debbie Charna, now retired Lower School teaching specialist and avid Reach Out and Read volunteer, “This is more than triple the donation of previous years! On average, CSG donates 200-300 books.”

meaningful service learning work. CSG partners with several local organizations, such as the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio, YWCA, and Cat Welfare to instill CSG’s ethos of service within the girls. For example, during the 2014-2015 school year, Form IV’s class took a field trip to Cat Welfare and were inspired to help. They encouraged others to give donations to the rescue center or to purchase Maine Coon’s Haiku, a book written by Michael J. Rosen, an animal lover who donates proceeds from his book to cat welfare. Through the annual tradition of the Adopt-a-School Bazaar, Lower School students are highly involved in the planning, creating, and organizing of the service learning event. Students create crafts from reusable or recycled materials, which are then sold at the bazaar. The money raised is donated to organizations that support education and ecology. Long-standing recipients of the proceeds are the Sucasari School in Peru and the Gorilla Project with Partners in Conservation through the Columbus Zoo. Additionally, a third of the proceeds are donated to a local organization, which the students select by ballot. Continues on next page

Children’s Hunger Alliance After attending Children’s Hunger Alliance’s (CHA) annual luncheon, ‘Menu of Hope,’ and hearing the keynote speaker, Viola Davis, speak about her experiences as a child in poverty, I realized how big of an impact CHA is making on the lives of kids all across Ohio. So, when I took the service learning class at CSG during spring quarter and my classmates expressed an interest of helping younger children, I immediately thought of CHA. I invited Mrs. Jackie Haight, their volunteer coordinator, to come visit our class and talk about some of the ways we might be able to get involved. She shared that CHA collects new or gently-used school supplies to hand out to kids at the beginning of each school year. In support of CHA’s cause, our class decided to hang up posters around the school about the collection and set up donation boxes so CSG students could donate their school supplies that otherwise might end up in the trash. One thing that always makes me smile is the ‘mandatory’ number of volunteer hours. To me, ‘mandatory’ implies something that is required, but doesn’t necessarily want to be done – like work. But whenever I have the chance to volunteer

In the Middle School, service learning activities and projects are student generated, but the students in Form VIII during the 2014-2015 school year also took a service learning class for one quarter, which brings to life CSG’s value of serving the community into the classroom. Students engage in service at all levels: from research, to advocacy, to indirect service, to direct service. The girls are required to identify issues of personal interest, provide service and resources to support their causes, and offer their own solutions to a variety of community needs. During the 2014-2015 school year, Middle School students were involved in a variety of projects, such as a “Penny Wars” fundraising campaign to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, a pop-tabs collection to support the Ronald McDonald House, and a year-end collection of gently-used school supplies to be donated to Children’s Hunger Alliance. Students participated in field trips to the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio, Franklin Park Conservatory, Mother Angeline McCrory Manor, and Wexner Heritage Village. Students also joined in the “Because I said I Would” social movement, which strives toward the betterment of humanity through promises made and promises kept. Middle

11 Upper School students flew to Guatemala to connect the students to another school and community that is traditionally underrepresented and where opportunities for girls’ education are especially lacking. The girls would experience first-hand the importance of service and how they can make a difference in people’s lives by teaching English and building a house.
“I particularly loved teaching English,” said Addy Feibel ’16. “Not only was it fun but I also truly felt that what I was doing was making a difference in these children’s lives.” With the growth of tourism in the vicinity, “English would give these children far more opportunities and allow them to better provide for their families financially.”
“My experience in Guatemala was much more life-changing than I could have ever thought. Wealth is a different concept to the Guatemalans. Many of these people are some of the wealthiest I have ever met,” said Annie Parkhill ’16. “They have family, friends, and everyone cares for each other. The sense of community was overwhelming. Everywhere we went, whether it was the school, the building site, or just out on the town, the people were outgoing and kind.” This sense of community was shared by many of the other students. Kendra Weiser ’16 recalled a morning on the trip where a group of little girls handed her their playing cards even though they didn’t have a lot of other toys. “This really allowed me to see how kind and thoughtful the people of Guatemala

While on the trip the girls bonded and got to know each other outside of the classroom. “The way we worked together was surprising,” Madeline Woda ’16 said. “I got to see my classmates in a new light and really appreciate their strengths in a non-academic setting. Our team really came together.”
MY EXPERIENCE IN GUATEMALA WAS MUCH MORE
life-changing THAN I COULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT.
The hosts, Reverend and Mrs. Elias Muxnay Hi and their family, “are truly inspiring people,” Andrea Presper ’16 said. “Argentina is a mother of three who cooks every day for the school children while also going to law school on the weekends. Elias’s other daughter, Sheyley, is a med student in Quetzaltenango. Most children do not even finish primary school in Guatemala. So I found it very inspiring to meet two women who were defying the norm.” Maria Presper ’16 concluded, “The experience in Guatemala as a whole was humbling and taught me to never take my situation for granted ever again.” Profe Miller is already in the planning stages for the next trip to Guatemala, which is tentatively planned for May 2017. The trip will be expanded to encompass medical service as well. Students and parents will have an unparalleled opportunity to serve alongside each other, offering health education, nutrition, and medical services. Watch for more announcements about this extraordinary opportunity to participate or support the team.

Liz and Webb Vorys P’07, ’12, were proud chairs of the Landmark Campaign, eagerly volunteering because “we wanted to pay back the gift we received from those who came before us. We also want to pay forward for those who will come after us for the benefit of the girls who attend CSG today and for the benefit of the girls who will attend CSG tomorrow—all of whom will be the leaders of our future.”

It is the physical manifestation of a ‘complete education.’ The role of arts and Athletics are critical to a CSG education. The Wellness Center has given our amazing student athletes the tools to compete at the highest level. The Agnes Jeffrey Shedd Theater has provided an amazing acoustical experience for our performers and audiences. And there is such a sense of joy each day when I enter the Ruch Dining Room.

The beautiful, cutting-edge physical facilities—our new health and wellness center, swimming pool, and theater—are emblematic of the school’s holistic approach to learning that only further strengthens and supports the excellent academic experience at the school.” Kim Rice Wilson P’17 was instrumental in raising funds for the campaign. “My lasting memory of the Landmark Campaign will be how so many people, who deeply care about CSG, all came together to make this campaign successful and to make these new facilities a reality. Parents, grandparents, alumnae, corporations, faculty, staff, board members, and friends gave to this campaign in so many critical ways. It has been an amazing privilege to see first-hand the impact the School has made on innumerable students and their families. The legacy of this campaign will be that CSG will continue to make such an impact on future families for years to come.”

Second Annual Scholars Gala a Success! On Saturday, April 25, 2015, Columbus School for Girls hosted its second annual Scholars Gala at Le Meridien Columbus, The Joseph. Over 300 community members gathered to further CSG’s mission to embrace the vitality of a diverse community by providing need-based financial aid to qualified families for whom it would otherwise not be an option. Led by a committee of dedicated volunteers, the Gala raised $161,000 to help enrich and empower girls in our community and to provide a curriculum for the entire student body that reflects multiple cultures and global connectedness. The evening began with Pizzuti Collection Curator and CSG Alumna Rebecca McCabe Ibel ’84’s presentation on the artwork displayed in the hotel gallery. Throughout the evening, guests perused the art, alongside sculptural floral arrangements custom designed for the Scholars Gala, and an amazing selection of silent auction packages. During the live auction, a donor offered last minute to make a $5,000 contribution to the Scholars Fund if 10 families came forward to give $500 each. The community stepped up and, in less than a minute, completed this challenge and raised an additional $10,000 for scholarships. It was a wonderful show of the generosity in our community! The Scholars Gala is the primary fundraiser for CSG’s Scholars Fund. For the 2014-2015 school year, 27 percent of students enrolled at CSG benefited from the financial aid this fund provides. To our dedicated committee, attendees, donors and sponsors, we offer our sincere thanks. Your participation makes the CSG community stronger and more vibrant, and we are extremely grateful for your support!

She says it is the first trip she hasn’t planned for herself, but did enjoy as they made their own side trips. It was the Inline Passage Way, by boat or plane, as there weren’t many roads where they went.

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Joseph Sugar, Jr., on May 7, 2015, at the age of 82 years old. He was Dorothy Sugar Ziegler ’55’s brother and Sally Byers Sugar ’54’s brother-in-law. Mr. Sugar was also Susan Sugar Gerlach ’80’s father and Amy Rau Sugar ’87’s father-in-law. Joseph’s grandchildren include: Emily Gerlach ’05, Charlotte Gerlach ’06, Sally Sugar ’12, and Sophia Sugar ’14.
“First reunion news: the picture tells all. We had a total of ten former classmates, at one time or another – all hail to Rosamond Brown Vaule, Sylvia English Haller, and Esther Webster Summers who came from out of town. Ann Abbott, Connie Crabbe Dehlendorf, Anne Johnston Redner, June Loving, Dorothy Sugar Ziegler and, particularly Saundra Dombey Cooke, and I were the stalwarts from Columbus. Everyone participated at various times from lunch and a tour of the school on Friday followed by the alumnae meeting which honored Kitty Morton Epler ’62. That evening we enjoyed cocktails and appetizers at school followed by dinner at Black Point, a swinging new restaurant in the Short North. Saturday noon saw us in the Short North again at another high sport, The Guild House. This is attached to Columbus’ newest hotel, The Joseph. After lunch most of us walked across High Street to the new art museum of contemporary art owned by Ron Pizzuti, a good friend of CSG. The gallery is curated by former alum Rebecca McCabe Ibel ’84. Both Ron and Rebecca were on hand, so we received super VIP tours with a very personal touch. “That evening, thanks to Saundra Dombey Cooke who sponsored us, we had a lovely dinner at New Albany Country Club. So you see, we covered the city and ate particularly well. We who were present had a grand time although we did miss those of you who weren’t there. Sure hope we all can gather in 2020 for 65. No weddings, no parties, no nothings should interfere! “Lots of other news to report so I will do it briefly and alphabetically. “Rosamond Brown Vaule received high honor for her outstanding service on Massachusetts Arts Council, the Commonwealth Award, the highest tribute the state can pay a citizen. We did not hear this from her but she should be most proud and we are for her. “Connie Crabbe Dehlendorf and husband Mike are taking a driving trip across New England to see friends and, of course, to return to Middlebury. “Anne Johnston Redner’s daughter Carol has been appointed to the Michigan Council for the Arts by Governor Rich Snyder. She is on the committee for policy and funding. “June Loving has spent the summer in Florida. With all the rain we have had, we do not blame her.
“Jane Peters Ward and husband Dick missed reunion because they were on a cruise down the Elba River with a former CSG faculty member Judy Clovis and her husband Al. “Not sure of my facts but I think Dorothy Sugar Ziegler said she had the only alum granddaughter graduating this year. In any case, Samantha Ziegler ’15 is on her way to High Point for college next year. “We Columbus-ites are to lunch in a few weeks with Marcia Willcox McHam who will be in town for the wedding of Connie Aldrich Bodiker ’54’s daughter Amy Bodiker ’90. “To all, either we loved seeing you or we missed you. Next time, be there! Best to you for the rest of the summer and early fall.” It is with great sadness, we report the death of Joseph Sugar, Jr., on May 7, 2015, at the age of 82 years old.

We have returned to our summer house in Ashland, Oregon, to be with Jerry’s daughter Sheila, her husband Ben, and seven-year-old daughter Clarity. Clarity is much like Sheila only in miniature: bright, talented, and possessing great stamina. Sons Scott and stepson Brad joined us with their families. Scott comes for the Fourth of July, and Brad’s family joined us in August. Grandchildren range from seven to 19 years old. All are in school and active in all sorts of things from skate boarding to theater. We are blessed that all is well.”

True to form, we left before the taxi drivers in Paris rioted. You will note that unrest follows where Sue goes. Makes you wonder? It’s a year of changes for the Lorig family. Husband Bruce will be closing his development business in the fall. For better or worse, but never for lunch…I hope. My small horse farm has sold so August will be devoted to saying farewell to boarders who have been with me for years and staging a huge equipment sale. Any of you need a dandy tractor? We will do our annual migration to northern Michigan for the Annual Lorig Mosquito Feed and Poison Ivy Fest. That’s about it. “With sadness, we report the passing of another of our classmates, Patsy Soderstrom Shellie. Patsy was a lesson to us all who, despite crippling Polio in our high school years, soldiered on with great courage and humor.” It is with great sadness that we report the death of Patty Park Bowman on June 17, 2015, at age 77, after a long struggle with illness.

In fact, I have decided to move there in a couple of years. Meanwhile, this has been a very busy summer for me. One son was with me. My granddaughter was with me for the summer. My grandson was with me for another two weeks. My daughter, her husband, and their son stayed for three weeks. Then, I went to Philadelphia for two weeks. Tired already. My challenge is meals for eight people. It’ll be fun! As for my health, I do excerise at my ‘Y,’ walk, and cycle for three miles.” Marilyn Masson McRae writes, “On June 12, 2014, I had a total reverse right shoulder replacement and bone graft.

It focuses on nine kids who perform in two youth social circuses.
These programs bring together kids who would not otherwise meet, aiming to change the world one contortionist, juggler, and tumbler at a time. The circuses are composed of black and white children in St. Louis and of Arabs and Jews in the Galilee. To do the research, I visited both programs several times and even tried out wire-walking, juggling, minitrampoline, globe-walking, trapeze, lyra, and silks. I failed at every one and have the videos to prove it. “Hillary Rodham Clinton: Do All the Good You Can (Balzer & Bray/HarperCollins), for 8- to 12-year-olds, will come out in January 2016. Because the former secretary lived across the hall from me in college, I was able to interview a number of her friends and staff. The book includes fun, child-friendly stories.”

There were 20 students who signed up for a program that promoted trying something new, and Tai Chi was one of the choices.

Since I had only a short time to deliver the message, learning the concept of it was more important than perfecting any of the movements. We are a fast-food society (so-to-speak). So slowing down was a challenge and maintaining the Tai Chi Stance in general remains an interesting concept. Tai Chi, after all, is a different way of moving.

Since becoming licensed and learning through experience the great demand for specializing, it is clear my passion is residential real estate: and specifically, the process of being an advocate for those who are downsizing... particularly, assisting older people to make transitions from larger homes to smaller ones, whether this means purchasing a smaller house, buying a condominium, or moving into Assisted Living. Special designations and courses enable Realtors who want to assist in this process, and I am earning this designation. Finding ‘home’ is daunting for each of us, figuratively and literally. ‘Home’ can be a structure, a location, or an intangible concept. As life evolves, so do people, and accordingly, ‘home’ becomes a very different thing depending on circumstance. In an ideal world, moving happens gradually, predictably and as planned, but sometimes change is without warning or forethought. There is a growing need for realtors to be able to provide customized service to a growing population that has given so much to its offspring and its country. My news is that my role in Real Estate is to facilitate easier and

Elective Africa sends pre-medical, nursing, and medical students to countries in Eastern Africa to volunteer and gain a hands-on experience in the field of medicine. My placement in a local Tanzanian hospital afforded me many clinical opportunities I would not have in the States like recording the vital signs of new mothers and neonates, suturing wounds, performing gynecological exams, providing HIV care, administering vaccines, and delivering babies on a daily basis. The hospital to which I was assigned was decades behind those in our own country and gave me a new appreciation for proper sterilization, medical technology, and higher education. In addition to volunteering in the hospital, I also visited many orphanages and villages to provide care. My time in Tanzania has solidified my decision to pursue a career in medicine and further strengthened my passion for global healthcare.” Jessica Greer writes, “This summer, I will be working at Labminds, a small start-up company in Boston, MA. They are making a robot to automatically create solutions for lab work. I will be joining the team for the summer as the only female and working on programming the system to understand chemistry.”

THANK YOU!! I am also excited to introduce a new staff member to the CSG community. With over 25 years of experience in non-profit leadership and fundraising, Dana Booth has recently joined CSG’s Development and Administrative Teams as our new Chief Development Officer. Dana comes to her role leading the fundraising and alumnae relations team following nearly 17 years at The Ohio State University, where she served most recently as an Assistant Vice President, responsible for six regional fundraising territories beyond central Ohio, five college/unit teams, and all fundraising on Ohio State’s four regional campuses during the $2.5 billion But for Ohio State Campaign. She built and led the Donor Relations & Stewardship program for eight years, strengthening the University’s commitment to donors through enhanced recognition programs, accountability for donor funds and their use, and celebration of the value and impact of philanthropy on Ohio State’s campuses. Dana also served as a Director of Development in the College of Arts & Sciences, and in the Office of Corporate & Foundation Giving. Prior to her years at Ohio State, Dana led teams as Director of Institutional Advancement at the Berkeley Carroll School in Brooklyn, New York, and as a Fundraiser/Archival Project Manager for the Paul Taylor Dance Company in New York, New York. She served as Administrative Director for Toledo Opera, as Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Syracuse Opera, and trained volunteers across the country as an Associate Director at The National Exchange Club in Toledo, Ohio. Dana holds a bachelor’s degree in public relations from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, and a master’s degree in public policy and management from the Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University. She is a certified Business Etiquette Specialist. Dana and her husband, Bruce MacLaughlin, live in Powell, Ohio, and have two children, Delia (15) and Ian (12). We are honored to have the opportunity to work with such a talented and experienced leader, and hope you will join us in warmly welcoming Dana into the CSG community! Throughout my role this year as Interim Director of Development, I have been deeply touched by your leadership, passion, and commitment to the betterment of our school and our girls. Please allow me to take this opportunity to personally express my sincere gratitude to each and every one of you for a terrific year and for all you do to support our community, this school, and my own daughters’ experiences here at CSG. I am immeasurably grateful! With great appreciation,
Regan F. Mazak P’27 ’30 2014-2015 Interim Director of Development and External Relations 2015-2016 Associate Director of Development
