“ Sustain a br igh and joyf ul spir it. ” — CORNELIA CONNELLY
Dear Friends, As I complete my second year at Mayfield, my life has been touched by the unique and wonderfully blessed connections I have made with our students. I see the joy in their faces when I greet them during morning drop-off, their smiles brightening up my day. I have had the privilege of visiting their classrooms and witnessing how their excellent teachers connect with them in engaging lessons: the English class where students acted out a scene from Othello while exploring the villainous nature of Iago; the AP Statistics class where students used candy kisses to explore the concept of “confidence intervals.” I see them connecting with their faith in such beautiful ways during our schoolwide Masses. I’ll never forget when they tied a colorful “Happy Birthday” balloon to Cornelia Connelly’s portrait, as if they were celebrating a friend. I have cheered with them in the gym bleachers, shouting “Go Cubs!” Here at Mayfield I truly feel like a member of a family, connecting with parents, grandparents and alumnae as we share our cherished traditions. By the time I give students their graduation hug goodbye, our Mayfield connection is so strong I feel as if I’m sending forth a daughter into this world. Making joyful connections is at the heart of Cornelia Connelly’s educational philosophy. Like Cornelia, I believe that students learn, teachers teach and we all grow best in a joy-filled and connected community. Students, especially girls, crave this connectedness. One of my favorite educators, Parker Palmer, writes about the beautiful web of connectedness that great teachers create, empowering their students to “weave a world for themselves.” The famed researcher on girls’ education, JoAnn Deak, has shown that girls learn and thrive in an atmosphere of connectedness, one in which they know for sure that their teachers care passionately about them and the work they are doing together. At Mayfield each student has these opportunities, overlaid with the warm embrace of a trusting, faith-based school, making joyful connections that last a lifetime.

Marla Alders congratulates her daughter, Kate Alders ’13, on her Mayfield graduation in June 2013.
“A strong leadership team begins with the relationship between the Head of School and Board of Trustees Chair. As Marla completes her remarkable term, I could not have asked for a steadier hand or a more loving and visionary leader to guide my transition to Mayfield. I have felt a real sense of connection and trust with her. Like so many of the relationships we forge at Mayfield, my connection to Marla will be a friendship for life.” — KATE MORIN

Meage fom the Board of Trustees Chair Dear Friends, We moved into our home on Bellefontaine, across the street from Mayfield, three days before our daughter Kate was born. Starting as a toddler and each year after, she would gaze out her bedroom window and admire the girls in their beautiful white gowns entering the gates of the school on graduation day. Then came the day 14 years later when Kate passed through those same Bellefontaine gates as a student. In 2013 she made the walk across the street in her own beautiful white graduation gown. Second only to the day of her birth, the most special moment I have shared with my daughter was when I presented her with her Mayfield diploma. I have been so blessed by my connections with Mayfield as a neighbor, a parent, a trustee and a Board Chair. I was again blessed three years ago to lead the school in the important process of finding a new Head of School. The community gathered with such enthusiasm through the selection months, fully participating in the discernment that led to the hiring of Kate Morin after a nationwide search. Once Kate walked through those Bellefontaine gates as our new Head of School in July 2015, her wisdom and loving embrace of our Catholic, Holy Child philosophy immediately forged a beautiful new connection with all of us. During my seven years as a trustee, I have had the pleasure to serve under two wonderful Board Chairs, Dan Banis and Ed Roohan. As a team, we accomplished much. We brought the Faith in Our Future capital campaign to fruition, created and implemented the Strategic Vision 2020 and oversaw a successful transition in leadership. I am thankful for the guidance of the leaders who came before me and for their support. As I near the end of my tenure as Board Chair, I reflect upon all of these connections and what we have accomplished together. Under Kate’s leadership, a talented and caring faculty and staff has been gathered and nurtured, facilities have been improved and we are at full enrollment. And, most importantly, our precious students are flourishing. I’d like to take this opportunity to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the talented women and men of the Board of Trustees with whom it has been my pleasure to serve. I am thankful to all of you, past and present, for your friendship and your confidence in me. I have learned from you, shared new experiences and formed bonds that will stand the test of time. For these connections I am eternally grateful.

There are plenty of meaningful catchphrases used these days to describe excellence in education. We empower confident, 21st-century leaders. We engage in project- and inquiry-based learning. We promote critical thinking, hands-on learning and digital literacy. Our girls are college-ready, globallyaware citizens equipped to solve real-world problems. But what does all this mean at Mayfield? How do our teachers use the best practices in education to connect with their students? Step inside a few Mayfield classrooms and see these words in action.
| Witness the pure joy of an “Aha!” moment
Clusters of freshmen are huddled around metric rulers, beakers, boiling water, food coloring and an assortment of objects including chocolate chips and heat lamps. It’s lab day in Conceptual Physics, and they are learning about heat transfer.
“They are seeing that physics is about discovery and not just about plugging numbers into equations,” said teacher Tanya Melby, adding that some girls begin the class thinking that “they can’t do physics” because it’s too weighty a subject for a freshman.
In a key move to strengthen Mayfield’s science curriculum, all freshmen began taking a lab-driven physics class in fall 2016 to lay the groundwork for in-depth and upper level biology, chemistry and physics courses. Students also receive a full-year, UCaccredited laboratory science credit.
The labs teach students to trust the data they collect and to realize it’s okay if their results are not perfect. Girls typically want to get the right answer right away, teachers said. But in this class, students learn that scientific inquiries can be slow and that enlightenment comes by understanding error and unexpected data.
The class focuses on teaching students the rules of nature that govern the physical world by making theory come alive through lab work. With 16-student classrooms, teachers have plenty of time for interaction with the girls as they measure with precision, record findings, collect data and recognize trends.
“This is a real-life experience with a problem,” said Steffi Zavaleta ’20, as she measured, entered data in her iPad and realized that the numbers were adding up. “It’s like a word problem coming to life before my eyes.” That is what we like to call an “Aha!” moment.
Along the way they learn an enduring lesson that is one hallmark of an all-girls high school education— Mayfield students become confident and curious young scientists.

We can state with 100% certainty that the answer is c) AP Statistics. Teacher Jessica Quinn, Mayfield’s Math Department chair, is lighting up the Smartboard, educating the next generation of businesswomen, engineers, computer scientists, sociologists, marketing executives— or any of the scores of careers that rely heavily on statistical analysis. The course is part of Mayfield’s continuing efforts to drive academic achievement through expanded AP offerings in math and science. Most of the class was a careful, step-by-step examination of how to construct a “confidence interval,” which is a way to estimate something about a population based on a sample from it. Through a series of intricate calculations, the students developed a “confidence

After some groans and laughter, Mrs. Quinn told her nine students that she wanted them to learn how to do calculations by hand because “you first must understand what it all means. You have to know where these numbers come from... so when you use your calculator you are not blindly using buttons.” Sara Lydon ’19 said that AP Statistics has definitely taught her about “confidence levels,” but on a more personal level. “I feel like I can better understand all the information that is thrown at everyone and understand how they got this information,” she said. “Sometimes I’m more doubtful about the stuff I hear now because I am more aware of how it can be interpreted... And I have so much more confidence thinking about my future career.”
AP STUDIO ART
| How Mayfield artists connect art and science
Mayfield’s Advanced Placement Art students were surprised when teacher Theresia Kleeman told them they were about to participate in “Hour of Code,” a worldwide campaign to engage women and underrepresented minorities in computer science. Wait. This is an art class, they thought. We paint, we draw, we sketch. But in this lesson, students were introduced to the colorful intersection of art and science. In what can best be described as a sophisticated “paint by numbers” exercise involving photon intensity measurements and calculations, students linked color intensity to computer code from NASA’s Chandra satellite to create images of a supernova. The class exemplifies how Mayfield strives to integrate learning about coding and technology across disciplines to prepare students
to be innovators in whatever field they enter. Holy Child foundress Cornelia Connelly would likely have called this “meeting the wants of the age.” “I didn’t realize the correlation between coding and art until now,” said Sofie Raptis ’17. “Now I can see that there can be such a strong bond between the fields.” Ms. Kleeman told her students that the work of an artist in this important field “is to make visible what would otherwise be invisible.” These art students will never look into the night sky again and see darkness. “Color is everywhere,” said Christine Geng ’17. So, too, is code.
| The Gospel according to Paul in 140 characters and a few hashtags How do you make Church men from about 52 A.D. relevant to a classroom of teenage girls in 2017? Theology teacher April Garcez’s lesson, called “Twitter Wars,” took off like a viral internet post. Mrs. Garcez’s sophomore class was studying the early Church and Pauline theology. They learned how Paul preached that there is only one God, the Father of our Lord Jesus. He explained to the factions of people that Christians are one body, the Church, of which Jesus is the head. Paul preached that the death and resurrection of Jesus are the heart of the Gospel.
Students also discussed how the churches Paul established—the Thessalonians, Corinthians, Galatians and Philippians—were having a hard time believing it all. “So with these themes in mind, I want you all to think about what Paul would tweet out to his peeps,” Mrs. Garcez told her class. “And how would his churches respond?” This class of digital natives quickly began translating theology via Twitter, hashtags and tagging:
Thessalonians @luvbug825791 Chill fam we don’t need you. We have missionaries #noneed #stayinurlane @hi_im_paul Philippians @joy_to_the_world Bruh, we’re chill @hi_im_paul At least we don’t drink at church @lit.not.liturgy @hi_im_paul Thx bro @joy_to_the_world youz coming in clutch #blessed @joy_to_the_world I gotcha fam! We’re all in this together #HSM @hi_im_paul For non-Twitter users wondering why this lesson worked, Mrs. Garcez explained that before they could tweet out the discussion, students had to understand the core of Paul’s teaching, summarize it and interpret it—in 140 characters or fewer. The students did not send out their tweets. Instead, they wrote on paper using colorful pens, because interactive note taking promotes better learning, Mrs. Garcez said. “I think this helps us understand and to modernize what was happening back then with the early Church,” said Hannah Lenz ’19. Sydney Reisch ’19 added, “It’s easier to connect with the message of Paul when we can do it in a fun and understandable way.”

n n o e C c t i h o t n i s a F Calm settles over the gym when students gather for Mass. They quietly stop their busy day, take a breath and catch up with their lives in prayer and song. The many who are Catholic seem to innately know that this hour of Holy Eucharist is the “source and summit of the Christian life,” as Vatican II said. For students of other faith traditions, the Mass reverently unifies the spirit of Mayfield students, offering a time of respectful reflection for all. We see students connect faith to life when they form school clubs and plan activities centered on service. We see it when a student’s hours of service far exceed requirements; when dropping off food for a shelter becomes serving a meal to those in need; when tutoring a special needs child grows into a caring friendship. At Mayfield, students are learning that teenagers can serve as disciples of Christ in profoundly meaningful ways.

How the Campus Ministry team makes school Masses their own The colorful Mylar balloon tied with a red ribbon to the portrait of a young, gently smiling Cornelia Connelly said so much more than “Happy Birthday.” It said that teenage girls were honoring the foundress of their Holy Child education like teenage girls do—with a cute balloon. The joyful touch also spoke to how the Mayfield Campus Ministry team has dedicated themselves to finding ways to make monthly school Masses a deeply felt time of worship for their classmates. Along the way, they have learned rewarding lessons about their faith and the important role of women leaders in the Church. “We really want to make the Masses something that students look forward to and enjoy,” said Mary Rose Hawkins ’17, one of
four senior Campus Ministry leaders, along with Lindsay Bowen ’17, Annabella Gaspar ’17 and Kaitlyn Maddigan ’17. They care so much about creating a meaningful Mass experience that they surveyed students to identify favorite hymns to encourage more singing. The Mayfield top hymn hits? “On Eagles Wings,” “Pan de Vida” and “Trading My Sorrows (Yes Lord).” In theology classes, students often practice the Mass songs at least once. “Song is an important part of worship,” Mary Rose said. “It’s another form of prayer and some of the most beautiful hymns, like ‘Amazing Grace,’ are just as powerful as prayer.” Annabella said that preparing for school Masses is the team’s most important service.
“There is meaning to everything we do at the Masses,” Annabella said. “We just don’t do this because we are a Catholic school, we do it because we are spiritually attuned with our faith.” Campus Ministers taught students who had never participated in Mass how to serve as ushers. When they wanted to create a detailed Mass program with artwork, they quickly discovered that they needed to find a student artist to contribute the art. Students serve as Eucharistic Ministers, ushers, lectors and cantors.

It becomes routine,” said Kaitlyn. “But when you are involved in planning and seeing all the aspects that go into it, it becomes more meaningful. “I think that the whole school has grown a lot in spirituality,” she said. “And I think we have more fun being involved in Mass.” Campus prayer services, on the other hand, pose more challenging issues. Campus Ministry leaders must keep students’ interest for 30 minutes. “Does anyone have any ideas for visuals? We need visuals,” said Annabella, as they worked on the Holy Thursday prayer service. “The girls like visuals, it makes it more interesting.” With a theme of “Change Our Hearts,” the team decided that they would write 330 personal messages of encouragement and friendship on heart-shaped Post-it notes and stick them on the programs. They also decided to create posters and intersperse prayers with video reflections.
The work of Campus Ministry is at the heart of Mayfield’s Holy Child mission “to help others to believe that God lives and acts in them and in our world, and to rejoice in the divine presence.” The students, under the guidance of Campus Minister, Teri Gonzalez, are also involved in planning retreats, the annual Cornelia Connelly Day of Service and other Christian service efforts. Annabella said she believes her Campus Ministry work, which began her freshman year, is helping “to shape the values and beliefs that we hold… At Mayfield we care about service, we are informed about the needs of our community.” During a recent meeting, Mary Rose offered advice to new Campus Ministry leaders. “It’s really about making everyone realize that they are loved by God,” she said. “That’s the whole goal of Campus Ministry.”
Teri Gonzales, Mayfield’s Director of Campus Ministry
About Teri Gonzales Director of Campus Ministry Teri Gonzales has been formed by her many experiences with people living in the margins of society. She has worked with street kids, rural and urban poor, and victims of domestic violence and human trafficking in the Philippines. In the U.S., she ministered to at-risk youths and struggling single mothers. To all these roles she brought a joyful spirit of service informed by her deep faith. This is the lens through which Teri grounds her work in Campus Ministry and how she teaches theology classes. Teri has been involved in Campus Ministry since her own college days in the 1980s. She served as a Campus Minister at several girls’ schools in the Philippines and at Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart in Bethesda, MD, before coming to Mayfield in 2016.

Faith Connectio ns Campus Minister Teri Gonzales helps students connect faith to life What has been your primary goal during your first year as Mayfieldâ€™s Campus Minister?
This first year it has been important for me to observe, learn and be imbued with the Holy Child spirit, charism and mission. I have been so warmly welcomed by the Mayfield community, and my work with students is filled with joy. My main goal this year has been to facilitate the Campus Ministry studentsâ€™ leadership role as we continue to nurture the faith life experiences of the community. How have you seen the students grow in faith through their Campus Ministry activities?
I have been so inspired to see the Campus Ministry team take ownership of the group and grow into leaders among their peers and the school community. The more they
become involved and put more time and energy into their Campus Ministry work, the more I see their enthusiasm grow for making their faith and service relevant, and their personal prayer and worship meaningful. I also have seen that they want to pause, to be more reflective, and they are actually enjoying meditation. How cool is that? What are your plans as Campus Minister moving forward?
I would like to develop a training program for the Campus Ministry Council members so they can develop their skills and become more effective leaders in ministry. I think strengthening student leadership is so important because it leads to the growth of student initiatives in all areas: worship, service and retreats. We will always continue
to deepen understanding of how we can live out our Holy Child goals in our daily lives and make connections to faith and life. Ultimately, Campus Ministry prepares our students to be servant leaders in and outside of the school community and into adulthood. What has been your most joyful moment at Mayfield?
When I suddenly could not make it to the Ash Wednesday liturgy, my Campus Ministry students assured me that I must not worry because they were fully prepared to take care of the planning without my prompting. And then to hear from faculty and staff how empowered the girls were in leading the liturgy, and that the Mass was a beautiful reflection of their faithâ€”it just filled me with peace and joy.

Connec ting Pa st Cub spirit connects with a cheer to the past Last summer, a few Student Council members were meeting with Dean of Students Steve Bergen in the gym and noticed a brown and white banner on the wallâ€”one that looks nothing like all the red and white CIF championship banners.

In an instant, a memory-making tradition was reborn after 39 years.

From the first time a student passes through the Bellefontaine gates to the day she graduates, our Mayfield traditions create memories for a lifetime. What connects us through the generations is our shared sense of family, faith, joy, inclusiveness and fun. We gather in community for our Cornelia Connelly Day of Service; we are warmed by the beauty of Christmas at Mayfield. Ring Night is the sacred embrace of our junior students as they prepare for senior leadership roles. Students love sharing their Mayfield experience with their extended families on Grandparents and Special Friends Day.
Father-Daughter Night has become the â€œcoolestâ€? event of the year with a costume theme, bounce houses and a photo booth. A lovely Mother-Daughter Mass and buffet brunch celebrate the bond between girls and their moms. Spring dresses and afternoon tea signal the Senior Tea, which begins the countdown toward graduation. Finally, a sign of promise is embodied by the long white dresses our young women elegantly wear on graduation day. Our traditions bind us, our shared memories unite us.

Alum scientist: If we don’t blaze the trail, who will? Exploration, challenge and confidence launch Mayfield alums into STEM professions Years back, when Katie Brugman ’08 was about to begin her freshman year at Mayfield, she asked for the opportunity to take a sophomore-level biology course, a reflection of her fledgling love for science. Lisa Larson, the Science Department Chair at the time, and biology teacher Theresa Peters took a close look at her admissions file and saw that this 14-year-old’s unusually high math scores made her a good match for the class. A scientist was born. Katie majored in molecular cell biology at UC Berkeley and is currently pursuing a doctoral degree in biochemistry and molecular biophysics at Caltech. She credits that first Mayfield biology class, followed by AP Biology, for helping to seal her passion for science.
What does STEM stand for? Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
“Before I came to Mayfield, I thought I wasn’t good at math or science—even though I was taking honors math courses in middle school and had never gotten less than an A in any science course—simply because of the preconception that girls weren’t good at either,” Katie said. “What Mayfield does really well for aspiring women scientists is give them the opportunity to explore their options without preconceptions about their abilities.” Katie is among a number of impressive alumnae who Mayfield helped launch into STEM fields. In-depth interviews with numerous alumnae, conducted by retired Academic Dean and longtime English

The qualitative study of alumnae in STEM fields found that the Mayfield culture educates future scientists, engineers and doctors in three key ways: meeting the individual needs of advanced and motivated students, communicating high expectations in math and science classes and encouraging the pursuit of internship opportunities during high school. What also connects our STEM alumnae is the universal admiration and gratitude they hold for their teachers—who worked with them until midnight on a project, who were always available for tutoring, and who instilled a sense of mission to use their gifts to pursue math and science careers. Courtney Kelly ’14, who is studying engineering at the University of Notre Dame, recalled that almost every day, AP Calculus BC teacher Melissa Tighe reminded her class they had the ability to become engineers and scientists. Students believed that “if we didn’t blaze the trail to close the STEM gender gap, who would?” Others spoke of bringing their calculus and biology notes to college because those pages were treasure troves of information— especially valuable when they tutored struggling classmates.
“I clearly was one of the better prepared students in math,” said Jasmin Rizko ’14, who is majoring in mathematical and computational biology at Harvey Mudd College.
with excellence and are hungry for advanced science and math studies.
Challenge builds confidence
“Mayfield trusted that I would use the time to sit outside at the picnic table with my enormous textbook and mail in my line and surface integration homework,” said Betsy, who went on to complete a bachelor’s degree with a dual major in math and economics from the University of Redlands, and a doctoral degree at Caltech in the Division of Social Sciences. She is currently a member of the Math and Political Science departments at Washington University.
Alumnae are clear about what helped pave the way to college success: rigorous studies and the conviction of their teachers that they could master difficult subjects. “Ms. Peters made AP Biology as close as she could to a real college course,” said Dr. Laura Sinclair ’00. “She taught us how to be good science students—how to keep a lab book, take notes, prepare for exams. When I arrived at Caltech my study skills were significantly better than a lot of my peers.” Mayfield faculty—then and now—are attuned to the needs of all students and work to continually challenge those who charge through normal course offerings
Dr. Betsy Sinclair ’98 took an advanced independent study math course through UC Berkeley extension during her senior year.
Two recent graduates, Madeleine Waller ’13 and her sister, Sabrina Waller ’15, worked with faculty to supplement their academic program with courses through the Stanford University Online High School. Madeleine
took multivariable calculus and both took AP Physics C. But it was their classroom work that prepared them for higher level studies. “Mrs. Tighe made math something you could do,” said Sabrina. “She employed multiple explanations to help you understand a difficult concept, and provided a good support system so you could succeed at calculus.”
Teachers believe, students achieve Inside Mayfield classrooms, math and science teachers model excellence and high expectations, instilling the tenacity young women need to pursue STEM majors and future careers, alumnae said. When she first toured Mayfield, Dr. Sylvana Hidalgo ’05 told her mother, who had fled the civil war in El Salvador, that she worried about whether she could succeed academically. continues >>

Her teachers and college counselor—Dr. Anne Hartfield ’77, Mrs. Tighe and Lori Holtrust—“kept reinforcing the message that ‘yes, you can do this,’ ” she said. “I thought I would never get into Yale, but I did. So when it came to applying to medical school, I just thought, ‘Yes, I can do this.’ ” “I came out of Mayfield convinced that I could do whatever I set my mind to,” said Sylvana, a pediatric resident at the Columbia University Medical Center in New York, who will soon be a pediatric cardiology fellow at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital. She said she was particularly impressed by Mayfield math teacher Dr. Jack Blumenthal, a retired chemical engineer from TRW, whose commitment to encouraging women in science made a powerful impact on her. “You knew he was incredibly smart and didn’t have to be teaching high school,” she said. “He did it because he loved it.”
Internships spark passion As students advance in their STEM studies, Dr. Blumenthal and other faculty members encourage them to pursue science-related summer internships to get hands-on research experience at top-notch institutions in Los Angeles and beyond. Alumnae said these experiences hooked them on science and

research and helped them discover what it means to be part of a larger scientific community.
continue these efforts. The fact that they will likely be in the minority as women in the programs should not deter them.
Madeleine Waller spent three of her high school summers working with the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) at Caltech. She said this experience piqued her interest in STEM research. At MIT, where she is completing a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and computer science, she landed a position with the Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research and assisted with the design and testing of a survey satellite to be launched by NASA. Her determination and focus are in part rooted in her Mayfield education, she said.
Anne said she was the only woman among 60 graduate students working in her building and the only woman group leader in a department-wide undergraduate project to build an airplane.
A Notre Dame summer engineering program that Anne Legault Tufts ’06 took confirmed her commitment to acquire both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in aerospace engineering at Notre Dame, where she is currently a Ph.D. candidate specializing in aero-acoustics and computational fluid dynamics. Mayfield students continue to pursue internships at Caltech, City of Hope Hospital and USC, as well as summer STEM programs at Stanford and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, among others. The alumnae encouraged Mayfield students to
“I think I’m more confident for having attended an all-girls high school, where I was pushed to do my best.” She and others said that while they developed a love for science and math in high school, the totality of their Catholic, Holy Child education set them apart. Several cited the importance of the writing skills they acquired at Mayfield as a big plus for scientists. Also, the emphasis on morality and accepting responsibility for their own actions is always imbued in their work. “If you design an airplane, you have to keep in mind that there are going to be people on that plane,” Anne said. Whether or not a student ultimately ends up pursuing a STEM field, the math and science education all students receive at Mayfield imparts key skills. “The study of science teaches critical thinking, no matter what our future field,” Katie said. “You learn not to be swayed by emotion or authority. You learn to be objective, to find the truth.”
DR. LAURA SINCLAIR ’00
At Mayfield she discovered she really liked ‘mucking around’ labs. By the time Dr. Laura Sinclair ’00 graduated from Mayfield at the dawn of the new millennium, she had blazed through every math class, interned at Caltech and had taken a college-level independent study course in thermodynamics. “Mayfield gives you opportunities at an early age to become independent and resilient,” said Laura, a pioneering research scientist. “The confidence instilled enables you to pursue those professions when you move into the larger world.” To this day she is grateful for the nurturing mentorship during her high school years from Dr. Jack Blumenthal, a retired chemical engineer who is still teaching at Mayfield after a long career at TRW. She majored in physics at Caltech, then pursued her doctoral degree with Eric Cornell, a physics Nobel Prize laureate, at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Laura currently works as a physicist in the Applied Physics Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder.
“I haven’t gotten tired of mucking around in a lab yet,” she said. Her modesty belies her powerhouse research. This year she was recognized as “Woman Physicist of the Month,” a prestigious award from the American Physical Society, an international organization with more than 50,000 members. The society applauded her internationally acclaimed work: “[Dr. Sinclair] is recognized for pioneering new robust optical tools based on fiber frequency combs that operate outside well-controlled laboratory environments.” Laura finds herself a member of the women’s minority group in her field. At scientific conferences only about 10% of the attendees are women. It’s not unusual for new employees or visitors to her lab to assume that she is a secretary and ask her how to work the coffee machine. These encounters, however, remind her why she relishes her high school years. “At Mayfield,” she said, “no one made any comments that women don’t belong in physics.”
LINDSAY LADD ’14
This USC student rockets to the top of her game Three years ago, Lindsay Ladd ’14 was sitting in a Mayfield classroom taking Mrs. Tighe’s AP Calculus BC class. Last year she helped build a rocket with a team of USC engineers that set a world record for achieving the highest altitude ever for a vehicle entirely designed and manufactured by students. That feat made headlines and literally propelled Lindsay and her classmates to the top of a highly competitive group of university-level rocket-building teams.
“We were all cheering and crying when we found out,” she said. “We put so many hours, so much work into this. It was a big deal for us.” She said the student engineers on the team are highly sought-after upon graduation, especially by the nation’s premier aerospace firms. But first, Lindsay and the team are working on their next project: sending a rocket to space.
“We made everything ourselves,” Lindsay told students crowded into the Student Commons for another of Mayfield’s popular Brown Bag Lunch talks with accomplished alumnae. “A lot of what I learned in Mrs. Tighe’s and Dr. B’s class did carry over. It all helped.” A mechanical engineering major at the prestigious USC Viterbi School of Engineering, Lindsay said a classmate approached her one day and “asked if I liked rockets,” inviting her to join the group. She decided to give it a try, and now spends 10 to 20 hours a week in the lab. Lindsay and her teammates caravaned with their rocket to New Mexico’s Spaceport launch site for preparations, testing and, finally, the countdown and take-off of “Fathom II.” “It was ridiculous; we went four times the speed of sound,” she said. Students recovered the rocket about six miles from launch and data showed that it had reached an altitude of 144,000 feet, breaking previous records. Lindsay Ladd ’14 explains the concept of “specific impulse” to Mayfield students during a lunchtime talk.

Our beloved Sister Barbara Mullen, SHCJ, who passed away last June, had an extraordinary way of connecting with students and others through her wisdom, wit and, above all, her devotion to our Lord. She was always asking “What’s your story?” as a way of understanding the hearts of students and friends. She was fond of “keeping it real” to break down barriers in her relationships. Those she touched were grateful that she met them wherever they were on their faith journey and that she offered her trademark insights with honesty and love. For 25 years she shared her devotion to the values of a Holy Child education with the Mayfield Senior School community. At our annual Mass of the Holy Spirit in September, the Mayfield student body dedicated the 2016-17 school year to Sr. Barbara. We were privileged to welcome Fr. Rob Scholla, SJ, her spiritual advisor, to celebrate Mass. His message of God’s presence in our daily lives and the need for strong women leaders in society reflected Sr. Barbara’s legacy.
“Young women of Mayfield should be women who are charged with purpose and meaning and deep joy,” Fr. Rob said. “Sr. Barbara would tell us that the way you foster this deep purpose in life is to foster a deep and genuine confidence in your own dignity and value as a person.” Not a day goes by on campus when we don’t feel the power of her spirituality, which is beautifully alive in our mission as a Holy Child school—and in our knowledge that God lives and acts in us and in our world.

An evening to celebrate
Mayfield’s giving spiri Mayfield’s annual Donor Appreciation Dinner celebrated a history-making achievement, thanks to the giving spirit of so many members of our community. Our 2015-16 Annual Giving campaign reached 100% participation, a reflection of the overwhelming support of our current Mayfield families. In addition, a special “Heroes” giving day in June ensured our year-end fundraising success, and our “Cool the Cave” campaign brought direly needed air conditioning to the gym. On this warm fall evening, our nationally acclaimed, award-winning Women’s Ensemble serenaded guests and our talented instrumentalists kept the evening flowing with beautiful music. “Bless you, all of you, for helping to make Mayfield history,” Head of School Kate Morin said as she outlined new school initiatives, including a revamped science curriculum, the addition of a full-time counselor and a Campus Minister. These efforts, she said, are “all in the name of Cornelia Connelly’s great vision to create an empowering, engaging and excellent educational experience for our precious girls.”

Cave With the flick of a switch, just hours before athletes arrived for pre-season tryouts in August 2016, Athletic Director Lynda Gilbert turned on the gym’s new air conditioning system. Despite sizzling, 100-degree temperatures outside, the Sr. Mary Wilfrid Gymnasium was a comfortable 74 degrees inside. This was the cool culmination of a major capital improvement project that replaced a 20-year-old air circulation system with state-ofthe-art, energy-efficient air conditioning. This is a dream come true not only for our athletes, but also for the entire Mayfield community, which gathers in the gym for Masses, assemblies, dances and other events. We are especially grateful to the Mayfield Booster Club, whose members have earmarked much of their fundraising efforts in recent years to the project, resulting in a $88,000 gift toward our “Cool the Cave” initiative. Thank you to everyone who contributed during the 2016 calendar year to a cooler home for our Cubs!

Benefit 2016 Cattle Baron's Bash
Yeehaw, y’all! The “Cattle Baron's Bash” was a rip-roarin’ success! After posing for photos in the Wells Fargo stagecoach, guests mingled amidst a sea of cowboy hats during cocktail hour before moseying down to the Sr. Mary Wilfrid Gymnasium for dinner, dancing, a spirited live auction and a “paddle raise” fundraising finale. The Western-themed event was a nod to the property's original owner, E.J. Marshall—a man The New York Times called “the last of the great cattle barons”—who commissioned noted architect Frederick Roehrig to design his Pasadena mansion on Bellefontaine Street in 1915. We are grateful to our sponsors, donors, guests and supporters for helping us to raise more than $200,000. We also tip our hats to Benefit Chair Chelisa Vagim—our very own “Cattle Baroness”—and her team of event “wranglers” for their dedication to creating a fun, memorable and highly successful event!

Pat and Bill Eyler bequest: a legacy of love and scholarship
Ruby Bugarin ’89 thanks Mayfield through her living trust Ruby Bugarin ’89 is a busy mother of two and owner of two successful Mexican restaurants—Margaritas in Pasadena and Pepe’s in Montrose. When she and her husband recently took time to update their living trust and reflect on the enduring influences on their lives, Ruby decided to remember Mayfield with a bequest. “I’m so glad I attended Mayfield. It’s where I had a chance to blossom,” she said. As a member of the Dance Conservatory, Ruby said she “fell in love” with the arts programs at Mayfield. She wanted her living trust to be a vehicle of gratitude to Mayfield as one of the institutions “that had the most impact in my life.” Ruby’s fondness for Mayfield continues. Her daughter, Sofia Martinez ’19, runs cross country and track and is thriving as a Mayfield student. Ruby recalled attending our annual open house with Sofia and running into several of her former teachers, who recognized and welcomed her. “It made me think what a special place this is,” she said. “It’s where you belong and where thoughtful programs for girls educate the whole person.” Photo courtesy of Bronson Photography

Pat Eyler served on the Parents Board, a behind-thescenes mom helping to make Mayfield the special place it was for her daughters. Her husband Bill cherished all the Mayfield traditions—Ring Night, father-daughter dinners, graduation. The devout Catholic couple put four girls through Mayfield—Suzie ’67, Libby ’70, Peggy ’74 and Terry ’80—a reflection of their strong belief in the formational importance of Catholic education. After their daughters graduated and had families of their own, Bill and Pat enjoyed round two! They were once again a presence at Mayfield, treasuring our traditions—including Grandparents Day this time around. Their family’s second generation included Libby's daughters, Katy Gorris ’94 and Missy Gorris ’97; Susie's daughter, Keriann Orertell ’99; and Peggy's daughters, Anne Legault Tufts ’06 and Emily Legault ’08. It was during these joyful years with their granddaughters that Pat and Bill made provisions to remember Mayfield Senior School in their will. The couple wanted to ensure that their legacy of providing Catholic education to young women will continue into the future through the Eyler Family Scholarship. The Eyler family’s Mayfield graduates attended Santa Clara University, the University of Notre Dame, UCLA and USC. They have gone on to successful careers in business, medicine, technology, marketing, data analysis, personal wellness, aerospace engineering and pediatrics. Predeceased by Bill, Pat passed away last year. Daughter Peggy Eyler Legault ’74 said she and her family hope that each Eyler Family Scholar “will treasure how Mayfield will support not just your education, but also your spiritual and family life.”

Homecoming & Reunions 2016
On June 25, 2016, we welcomed more than 175 alumnae back to 500 Bellefontaine for our annual Homecoming and Reunions celebration. Graduates spanning classes from 1951 to 2011 celebrated years of Mayfield sisterhood at their 5th to 65th class reunions.
During the opening Mass in Pike Auditorium, we honored Mary Stoebe Sheridan ’66 as the 2016 Cornelian Award winner for her “Actions Not Words” as a social worker and volunteer with the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. Mary’s tight-knit, 40-member class also marked their 50th reunion with a giving milestone—their ninth consecutive class participation award for gifts to the Alumnae Holy Child Scholarship Fund. They shared memories of their decades-long friendship—including a grin-inducing reference to the “little brown hats” of the 1960s Mayfield uniform. “Now we’re back—walking a little slower, thinking a little slower—but still with that same Mayfield spirit,” said Mary. “I hope it never leaves us.”
Laughter filled Strub Hall as alumnae reminisced and took photos during their reunion dinners and revisited their favorite places on campus, including their old lockers. Mark your calendars for June 24, 2017, when classes ending in 2s and 7s will celebrate their reunions!

Class Notes 1950s “It has been a sunrise-sunset year. As many know, my husband Ross passed away peacefully in July 2016 after a difficult journey. My son and I were with him. A lovely ‘Celebration of his Life’ was held at Stepping Stones, where we volunteered for many years. Family and friends from near and far paid tribute to him and myself. His ashes were scattered at Coronado. A big thank you to all who have been so supportive. So, my life is forever changed. I continue to volunteer, walk or hike every day and join in with friends often. More TV and alone time. I have no travel plans at the moment. My middle granddaughter will be here for a couple days en route from the University of Arizona in Tucson to her family home in Chico. Youngest granddaughter is applying for colleges and my oldest is working in NYC having graduated from USC last Spring. My oldest son lives close by. My daughter moved to Virginia. Hope this finds you—my classmates—thriving and living the many blessings in our lives. Many years ago we launched a life full of hope and opportunity. It’s still there!” Alice Miller Henry-Taylor ’52

Class of 1969 Update from Erin Moore '69:
“Periodically the Class of ’69 gets together when Victoria Howell Fuster de la Riva ’69 returns to South Pasadena for the winter from Malbrea, Spain. We have started meeting twice a year. Kathy McCloskey Leber ’69 enjoys her house in Cabo San Lucas and she has two grown sons who sail out of the Balboa Yacht Club, where we dined in November 2016. Erin Moore ’69 continues to teach anthropology at the University of Southern California and, in her new classes, takes students to walk 200 miles of the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain. Karen Schumacher Poindexter ’69 is in baby heaven with her new granddaughter. She has two grown daughters, one of whom recently graduated from medical school. Shauneen Gough Bell ’69 continues to teach arts to fourth graders. She has a daughter and son-in-law who live in Japan and another son in Santa Barbara. Toni Quigley Tramontin ’69 just returned from a 35th wedding anniversary trip to Europe with her husband. She has lots of grandkids who live close by and she is the cheerleader on the sidelines for lots of sports games.
recently met the floor and broke her wrist; she has what looks like a Swiss army knife embedded in her left wrist to keep all the pieces together. Good thing she has a daughter who is about to finish nursing school and another in real estate. Victoria Howell Fuster de la Riva ’69 is a global citizen in her bi-continental existence. Her grown son is happily living in Spain, working in banking. Sally Bucklin ’70 always joins our class as an honorary member. She is an avid walker around South Pasadena. Cathy Carmack Jones ’69 works for NBC and her post-college daughter works in human resources with a fancy firm. Gaby Esteva-Genovese ’69 almost joined us but she had a wedding to attend. She has happily returned from Mexico to live in Los Angeles. Vickie Besel Baccaglio ’69 can never attend because she has eight grandchildren and there are lots of birthdays around this time of year.” Sharman Beven Dye ’69
“I am ever grateful for my Mayfield education and seem to use it every day as an independent college counselor for local students who want extra guidance on college admissions. In addition, our family went to Scotland last summer on our third golfing adventure. So nice to have our daughter, Katie Brugman ’08, with us on the trip. Katie works very hard as a Ph.D. candidate at Caltech and is ever grateful to Ms. Peters for inspiring her! Patti Wilson Brugman ’74

1980s “I help run the largest college at Fresno State, which was just named in the top 25 nationally by Washington Monthly, along with Stanford and the Ivies. Fresno State delivers a very high quality education to a relatively impoverished community, while its students collectively serve more than 1 million community service hours per year. Fresno State was also named #1 in the country by U.S. News and World Report for our success in increasing graduation rates as a university; the major boost for this came from our College of Arts and Humanities, which has increased rates the most and has met the 2025 goal for underrepresented minorities.” Honora Howell Chapman ’80

It is an honor to share life’s journey with this exceptional group.” But Mary Singer Brickner ’76 said it best, “Mayfield 40th Reunion… some things never change!!!”

You can always count on learning about others, the world and yourself more than you ever could standing still. I found myself surrounded by inspirational people from all over the globe who were passionate about solving the world’s health system challenges. “One of my most intense tasks was researching my dissertation, which focused on evaluating how healthcare providers define high quality maternal care in United Nations Relief and Works Agency Palestinian refugee camps. Despite the language barriers, I was welcomed into understaffed clinics around Jordan that treat over 1.1 million Palestinian refugees with very limited supplies. I interviewed providers and patients and then analyzed their responses to recommend quality improvement policies to the organization. “In my current position as a Public Policy Consultant at the London School of Economics Health Department, I review health policies and make best practice recommendations to several of the school’s international clients.”

Don Nores at the 2012 Donor Appreciation Reception
On June 9, 2016, Mayfield Senior School lost a beloved benefactor and friend, Donald Nores. Don was the loving husband of Honorary Trustee Joyce O’Hagan Nores ’49. Together they founded Digital Printing Systems, which became a global printing business. He generously shared his entrepreneurial spirit and vision to help educational and cultural institutions seek and pursue growth opportunities. Witnessing the fruits of a Holy Child education in his wife and family, Don was a firm believer in the importance of Catholic education and an enthusiastic supporter of Mayfield Senior School. Together, he and Joyce attended many school Benefits as well as board and benefactor events, and were supportive of the growth and development of our campus and school. At Mayfield, the Nores Circle is dedicated in their name as a lasting tribute to the family. In addition to Joyce, family members Mary Hennessy Nores ’80 and Mariah Snowden ’09 also attended the school. Music was a very special passion of Don's—he was a founding and longtime member of the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Master Chorale—and he was especially touched by the beautiful performances of our Mayfield Women’s Ensemble. Don truly believed in the Catholic education of young women in our Holy Child tradition. He, too, enjoyed the gift of a Catholic education and, in return, he supported his alma maters, Loyola High School and Loyola Marymount University. Don will be remembered as a man of faith and integrity, a true “Man for Others.” Eternal rest give to him, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon him.
Mayfield Senior School bids farewell to a dear friend, Melinda Winston. Melinda served on the Mayfield Board from 1985-1994, was named an Honorary Trustee in 1995, and was the very proud mother and grandmother of two Mayfield graduates, Melissa Winston Alfieri ’83 and Alexis Alfieri ’10. Thanks to Melinda’s vision and effort, the nearly 40-year tradition of an annual Mayfield Benefit was born, raising millions of dollars for the school since its inception. Throughout Melinda’s years at Mayfield Senior School, she graced our community with her vibrant personality as she organized memorable benefits, receptions and parties. Her hospitality and generosity—not to mention her Southern charm—were legendary. In 1995, at the “Mississippi Madness” benefit that honored Melinda, she shared: “Mayfield is such a special place and so dear to my heart.... There is a comradeship among the Mayfield family that has always seemed to me one of the finest of human relationships. This is Mayfield's heritage and tradition. “Every room here holds cherished memories, but most of all I will remember the people—the families, the conversations and the celebrations. “My highest praise goes to all the dedicated people who keep Mayfield the vital place it remains today: the Sisters of the Holy Child, the Board of Trustees, the Head, the faculty, and staff, and all the parents—mothers and fathers alike. They seem to love to serve and take pride in adding joy to others’ lives.” We are truly grateful for the joy Melinda added to our community. 58
