President Charisse Wernecke Dear Friends, I am pleased that in this issue of The Onyx we are both showcasing uplifting activities here at IND and presenting our annual development report. This school year has marked noteworthy firsts: the 175th Anniversary of the founding of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, the launch of our tablet PC program that will transform the way in which we educate our students, and our first co-sponsored event at IND to a sellout crowd! Our first semester has been an eventful one! Meanwhile, the ongoing economic crisis in our country and around the world illuminates some important points right here at IND. Many Americans who invested in stock portfolios on Wall Street have witnessed their investments disappear. In contrast, generous donors who invested in IND have witnessed their gifts yield impressive returns in areas much more significant than financial rewards. In this edition of The Onyx, we chronicle the impressive list of those generous donors who have given to further the work and mission of IND. Their gifts to the annual fund have helped provide compensation to faculty and

Foundation have enabled us both to support families in need of financial aid and to launch our Learning for the 21st Century Technology Plan featuring the One-toOne Student Tablet PC Program. Let us not overlook the gifts of time and effort so generously donated by our many volunteers in the Mothers Club, Fathers Club, and Alumnae Association. In turn, these generous gifts have enabled us at IND to provide one of the greatest gifts of all, education. As Blessed Theresa of Jesus Gerhardinger so strongly believed, formal education is among the most basic and important elements in raising our children. The value of the education we provide here at IND is especially high, given its superior quality and the contrastingly modest tuition we charge. My commitment to you is to keep our tuition as affordable as possible so that we might extend to the greatest number of parents the opportunity of providing the gift of education to their daughters. To all of those who so generously continue to help us in this regard, we thank you! In Notre Dame,

technology to all students.” IND’s 1:1 program is designed to prepare each young woman to realize her potential in a digital age. By providing each student with her own tablet PC, IND ensures that technology is an affordable, accessible, and indispensible educational tool for every student. During the program, each student creates an electronic portfolio, or e-portfolio, which includes a comprehensive collection of her work compiled throughout her high school experience. To better integrate the new tablet PCs, IND distributed Fujitsu Lifebook T1010 tablet PCs to teachers in August and hired a consultant as the Director of Curriculum Integration, Mrs. Diane Russell, to lead the technology improvements and educate the school community as the plan progresses.

corporations, local business, foundations, and educational institutions to the inaugural Corporate Open House. The event showcased IND and focused on the school’s educational mission of developing women leaders. The morning began with a rendition of “God Bless America” performed by the Select Choir and a greeting from President Charisse Wernecke. Former Baltimore City Mayor and IND Director Emeritus Thomas J. D’Alesandro, III spoke about IND’s historical and present-day relevance as an anchor educational institution in the City of Baltimore.

Pumpkin Palooza Bull Roast and Shrimp Feast sells out


n a sunny day this past spring, the leaders of the Mothers Club,

Fathers Club, Alumnae Association, and IND President Charisse Wernecke sat down to come up with a combined event that would bring everyone together in support of IND. President Wernecke explains, “It had to provide a great time for participants yet also provide significant benefit to our school. And so, the Pumpkin Palooza Bull Roast and Shrimp Feast was born!” To a sell-out crowd, Pumpkin Palooza made quite a debut. The event took place at IND on Saturday, November 8. Guests enjoyed dinner, music, raffles and a silent auction, all benefiting the Sister Hilda Marie Sutherland, SSND, Scholarship Fund. Special thanks to Sister Hildie for inspiring the scholarship and for all that she does. IND is grateful to all who supported the event, which was a tremendous success and raised critical funding for the Sister Hildie Scholarship endowment.

Choose Civility is read by all IND students


his summer, all IND students read the same summer reading book, Choosing Civility by P.M. Forni. The

author’s goal is to establish a code of courtesy to be applied to everyday life. “Having one book for all students was a departure from the usual fiction selections that the girls usually were able to choose from,” says Mr. Jim Antal, IND’s Library Media Specialist. “The fact that it was a nonfiction book and everyone had to read it was definitely different.” The students returned to school and participated in small group discussions about the book, facilitated by faculty, staff and administration. Reading the same book served as common ground for the students to begin healthy discussions, and the book’s topic of considerate conduct surely enforces what type of conduct is expected at IND.

IND’s cross-country team had a really trying season. Some of the team’s top performers had to struggle through injuries for most of the season, but that didn’t stop IND from having a successful season. The toughest opponent during the season was St. Mary’s. Against them, Sarah Steinmetz ’09, Maddy Jackson ’09, and Abby Gatch ’09 struggled with nagging injuries. All were determined to participate, however, because the meet against St. Mary’s would have been the seniors’ last home-race. IND was victorious against St. Mary’s that day. Winning by only one point (27-28). Despite her serious case of shin splints, Abby finished fourth place that day, securing the win. IND was the only undefeated team in the IAAM B-conference.

the championship game for the second year in a row. Although the INDians fell to Mercy by a score of 2-1, the team never gave up, fighting to the bitter end. Led by captains, leading scorers, and IAAM All-Stars Michele Chmielewski ’09, Alyssa Dondero ’10, and Ariella Hopp ’11 as well as defensive newcomers Shelby Bruno ’10 and Samantha Martin ’12, the field hockey team once again proved that they are major competitors in the IAAM.

Varsity Soccer by Taylor Callinan ’09, Captain With a record of 8-12, the varsity soccer season was an emotional roller coaster, always inches away from having a perfect record, losing most games by one goal.

The Darrah Sisters, Continuing the Legacy Four sisters take a moment to reflect on their IND education and share what paths their lives have taken, all stemming from the bond of sisterhood nurtured at IND. “As a family of sisters who attended IND, we have a special bond having shared in the traditions that made IND not just a school but an experience of a lifetime that will never be forgotten.” Since earning her Bachelor of Science in nursing in 1986, Anita Darrah Hagin '76 has spent twenty-one years as a psychiatric nurse at Sheppard Pratt Health System.

Jean was honored for her work with St. John’s Tenth Ward club, which raises funds for St. Elizabeth School for special needs children. She has marched in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade for more than 30 years, so she is a fixture for the crowd that lines Charles Street every year.

Jean (second from right) and Marge (far right) enjoy oranges with their basketball teammates at halftime.

Jean talks about when her brother enlisted after Pearl Harbor, “In the eighth grade…I had perfect attendance. And the day my brother was going into the service, I had exams. I was so upset when I said goodbye because I thought I was never going to see him again. Then I went to school and took my exam, and they let me go home and they still counted me as perfect attendance.” Regina “Jean” O’Keefe Curran ’45 served as Deputy Grand Marshall of the 2008 St. Patrick’s Day Parade because of her work with St. John’s Tenth Ward club serving the special needs children at St. Elizabeth.

Class of 1958 50th Reunion The Class of 1958 celebrated their 50th reunion in grand style during the weekend of October 3-5, 2008. The class gathered for dinner at the Hopkins Club on Friday, October 3. The following day, the graduates traveled to their alma mater for a luncheon in the renovated parlors and Mass in the chapel. A small group of graduates wrapped up the weekend on Sunday with Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary followed by brunch.

From left to right, Maureen Murphy Keck ’58, Ellen Norton Cullen ’58, Carmen Rodriquez Dorn ’58, Diane Thorpe Gargano ’58 and Anne Orr Rieger ’58 enjoy time together at the Hopkins Club.

The Class of 1958 used their time and talents to pull off a wonderful reunion weekend, and they did the same with their fundraising efforts. During the Capital Campaign the class set a goal to raise $50,000 by their 50th reunion, a goal to motivate their class and to challenge other classes. Their competitive spirit stems from their days at IND. According to Ellen, the Class of 1958 was the only non-senior class to win Gym Meet. Ellen explains, “They never again had Gym Meet after 1957 so we will always be the reigning champs.

A Message from the Chair ANNUAL


REPORT 2007~2008


Dear Friends, Thank you! On behalf of the Board of Directors, I thank you for your most generous support of the Institute of Notre Dame during the 2007-2008 year. Your gifts enabled us to continue the tradition of excellence that has marked our school from its foundation.

Each time I speak with students, I am inspired by their desire and motivation for excellence. Their accomplishments are impressive, and they exude a certain self confidence and inner strength. All of this results from the care and dedication of the faculty and staff, and our educational program. As donors, you have strengthened our programs, supported our outstanding faculty, and enabled our students to engage in an excellent education that will last a lifetime. Thank you for supporting IND in its mission to educate students to become women of discernment, active leaders, life-long learners, and responsible citizens of the world. Gratefully,

Delia M. Dowling, SSND Chairperson, Board of Directors

Fathers Club spends summer renovating IND Members of the Fathers Club spent many hours this summer at IND, renovating and enhancing various areas. Bill Wladkowski, (pictured, below left) father of Shelby ’10, and Tom Kline, (pictured, below right) father of Stephanie ’04, Elizabeth ’05, and Elise ’10, gutted an old office and bathroom and turned them into the admissions workroom and closet, complete with crown molding, recessed lighting, and new hardwood floors. The fathers did not stop there. They moved Sister Hildie’s bookstore from its old location near the art room to what was a lunchroom; they renovated the room to suit the needs of the store. The hard-working dads completed more projects and are still not finished. They have plans to enhance and help fix up other parts of the building.

Auditorium stage receives make-over The stage of IND’s auditorium, the foremost gathering place of the school community, recently received a significant make-over with the installation of new stage curtains and automated display screen. Liturgies, theatrical performances, school assemblies, class and parent meetings, and the Junior Ring Day ceremony are just a few of the many IND traditions and programs that the auditorium houses. The renovations, which have greatly improved the aesthetics and functionality of the auditorium, were made possible by the generous members of the Class of 1957 and a grant from the Harry L. Gladding Foundation. Come to IND’s next show to see the stage upgrades!

Historic Parlors renovated and redesigned IND's historic parlors have been restored and enhanced thanks to gifts from an anonymous benefactor and the IND Alumnae Association and gracious in-kind consultation from Chambers, Inc. Robert Hickman and Richard Snellinger, husband of Cathy Shuler Snellinger ’71 and father of Katie Snellinger ’97, of Chambers provided the blueprint and expertise that guided the renovations, including refinishing of the hardwood flooring, plaster repairs, new paint, improved lighting, new furnishings, and refurbishment of existing furniture. The parlors have long been a cherished reception area. Sister Marie Charles Grauer, SSND ’39 recollects, “When I entered the convent here at IND in 1943, there were approximately 80 Sisters who lived and worked here. We greeted and entertained our guests and new visitors in the parlors.” IND and the School Sisters of Notre Dame express their heartfelt gratitude to the anonymous donor, the Alumnae Association, and Robert Hickman and Rick Snellinger of Chambers for making the enhancement of this hallowed space possible.
