A Magazine for Alumnae, Parents and Friends of Mount Saint Joseph Academy

Annual Report of Gifts - page 25


A Letter From the President

November 2007 Dear Friends, As I begin to write about the future of our Mount community, I hear the echoes of the footsteps of the early Sisters of St. Joseph and their students in the halls of the Middleton Mansion in 1858. I see in my mind’s eye these women and their vision that has been realized, and I am awed with the responsibility we have to honor it, to continue it, and to expand it in the 21st Century. Eighteen months ago, the Board of Directors gathered for a retreat to set a steady and exciting course for the Mount for the next three years. At this meeting, I addressed the members and shared with them my vision for this exhilarating period to come, a period that is now. The Mount Magazine is a good example of something that is at the core of how we effectively communicate who we are in an ever-changing world. This edition has a new look, a contemporary image that we know you will find attractive. Our logo is a direct result of the Board’s creative input as we prepare for our 150th Anniversary. I am grateful to Jim Paul and his associates at T. J. Paul, Inc., for their work in designing our new brand. Hardly a day goes by without a call, an email, or a note from someone in this Mount community congratulating us on how professional and striking this new image is for our school. The fresh new look of our website too, as well as all the information and resources that are provided there, are impressive. I know that you will share my pride in the message that this new look conveys. I hope you enjoy the section, “Postcards.” Claire Geruson and Kelly Stefanowicz’s trip to El Salvador this past summer demonstrates how service begun in grade school and nourished in the Mount environment creates the women who will change the world. I am proud of them and the choice each made to leave the comfort of home to bring solace to the poor and to be the face of God in the world community. As we begin our 149th year, we are reminded, as our SSJ history states, “that we are rooted in the past with an eye toward the future.” How fitting, then, that while we explore past milestones, we will not only make this time in the history of the Mount one that future generations will look back on and be inspired by, but we will also be honoring those who made it all possible. I am confident that we will celebrate in a manner that is inclusive of all: those who came before, those who are in the now, and those who will be the Mount of the future. Our official celebration will commence in October 2008, and will close with the graduation of the Class of 2009. I welcome and invite you to participate in our tribute to all who brought the Mount to its greatness. Please join us in our planning. As you read the Mount Magazine, I hope you experience pride in the accomplishments of our students and alums. Every year on Founders’ Day, when the whole school visits the Motherhouse chapel, I see once again, in my mind’s eye, all those who have gone before, those Sisters of St. Joseph and their students who started all that we now cherish. It is a powerful vision and it strengthens my belief in who we are – those who are graced by our God. Enjoy the read. Blessings,

Sister Kathleen Brabson, SSJ President

Founders’ Day Begins Countdown to the Mount’s 150th Anniversary 1858-2008

O

n Monday, October 15, 2007, Mount Saint Joseph Academy celebrated Founders’ Day, which commemorates the founding of the Sisters of Saint Joseph in LePuy, France, in 1650. The first Sisters went out into the city working among the poor and homeless, the women and children, and taught them to make lace so they could support themselves. As a school community, we walked the grounds of our roots and celebrated liturgy together in the Motherhouse chapel just two blocks away. As we stood on holy ground, we remembered the spirit of these founding women who inspire us today. Of course, Founders’ Day has an element of community building and fun. The allgirls dance party and the faculty/students basketball game brought laughter and memories that will last a lifetime. This year, the celebration of Founders’ Day marks the 149th anniversary of Mount Saint Joseph Academy, thus beginning the countdown to our next milestone celebration -- the 150th Anniversary, which takes place in 2008. There’s an excitement building, and it is contagious. You may have heard some of the celebration plans; instead of adding more events to the calendar, the Mount will be emphasizng the 150th Anniversary in all events already on the calendar. The unofficial launch will take place at next year’s Golden Girls Luncheon September 12, 2008, which will be held at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club. The Official Launch will take place on Founders’ Day, October 15, 2008, at the Sargenti Arena on the grounds of Chestnut Hill College. A special Celebrauction/Gala Weekend will take place March 6-8, with a Friday evening event for young alums, the Saturday evening Celebrauction gala, and a Sunday event for those celebrating 25 or 50year reunions. The year-long celebration will conclude with the Graduation Ceremony for the Class of 2009.

The goal of this celebration will be to advance the mission and rejoice in our accomplishments. As MSJA President S. Kathleen Brabson, SSJ, stated, “We are celebrating who we are—not just the buildings we’ve constructed.” All these plans are underway to acknowledge past milestones and create enthusiasm among all who have made the Mount what it is today: past and present students, parents, administrators, faculty and staff. “Within 25 years of its founding MSJA was recognized by the Middle States as one of the areas’ premier schools – we are always looking for the next ‘right step,’” said Sister Kathleen. The Anniversary theme encompasses the Mount’s history and mission: Laced in a legacy … Nurtured by a mission … Seeding a harvest for the future … The Mount rejoices in 150 years. S. Kathleen Brabson announced the names of the honorary chairs: S. Mary Dacey, SSJ, former president of MSJA; Lois Trench-Hines ’60, and Dr. Angela Stout ’83. Says Angel, “I am thrilled to be part of the 150th Anniversary of the Mount. It will be a wonderful celebration of the school’s traditions and legacy as well as the superior education of young women that have made a difference in our community.” The following people have volunteered to help make this celebration a reality: Arthur and Gail Pasquarella, 150th Anniversary Chairs; Charlene Keller Fulmer, Esq. ’89, Alumnae Chair; Kent and Patti Roman, Current Parents Chairs; and Jim and Denise Paul, Alumnae Parents Chairs. “As we plan the events of the 150th, these people will play an important role in encouraging participation and support for the Celebration,” says S. Kathleen. “I am anxious for their wisdom and insight as we prepare to celebrate this milestone in the Mount’s History.” S. Kathleen extends an invitation for all to be included in the celebration and its planning: “This is an exciting time in the Mount’s history, and it is an honor for all of us to participate in marking this time of grace and blessing for the Mount.”


The Mount’s New Look Generates Kudos

Y

ou may have noticed a change in this issue of the Mount Magazine. Thanks to the artistic talent and guidance from Jim Paul, former MSJA Board Chairman, and his colleagues at Thomas J. Paul, Inc., the Mount now has a new logo and graphic design which will be used for all of our publications. According to S. Kathleen Brabson, President of MSJA, the feedback has been tremendous. Kate Groark Shields ’93 was very happy to report her excitement over seeing the new logo for the first time. As she opened her first letter from the Alumnae Association bearing the Mount’s new logo, she recalls, “I felt extremely proud to see the new graphic treatment, and my internal monologue said, ‘THE MOUNT! I WENT HERE!’ ” Kate, who is VP and Partner at FCF Schmidt Public Relations, Inc., is serving as Marketing Committee Chair of the Mount’s 150 Anniversary Celebration.

In addition to being used in the stationery and magazine, the redesigned logo has also been incorporated into the Mount’s website, which features additional pages and links to bring you more information. Be sure to check it out at www.msjacad.org. How did this all come about? In June, 2006, the Board of Directors of Mount Saint Joseph Academy attended a Strategic Retreat to outline strategies and direction for the next three years. At this session, a discussion took place regarding the Academy’s image as a premier educational institution in the Delaware Valley and how to best portray this image graphically in all of our publications. We are grateful to Jim Paul, Chris Salcito and Brian Kerns for sharing their time and talent with the Mount!!

Founders’ Day Mass Reflection by Maria Sylvester ’08

T

oday we gather to celebrate Founders’ Day, the founding of the Sisters of Saint Joseph and the legacy that has been passed on to us from the first circle of young women in Le Puy, France.

We remember those six young women, Anna Chalayer, Anna Vey, Claudia Chastel, Anna Braun, Francoise Eyraund, and Marguirite Burdier who came together in 1650. These courageous young women circled the city, desirous to respond and reach out to the miseries of the day, particularly the orphaned children, bringing God’s hand and touch of love to those children who were abandoned and lost. With the encouragement of Father Jean Pierre Medaille, the young women risked being seen outside the cloister to serve the needs of the people. Wearing the widow’s dress of the day for safety, they offered works of mercy that would most benefit the dear neighbor.

As the women circled the city, they reached out to young girls who were being abused, they took them in and offered to teach them a skill…the skill of lace-making…they sought out the homeless and offered them food and shelter. As the needs grew after the French Revolution, the circle of women grew in number. They were sent overseas to meet the needs in America, from St. Louis they were sent to teach deaf children and respond to the needs of immigrant families in Philadelphia. There was a growing consciousness of the face of God in those who were marginalized…a global consciousness…giving hope to a suffering broken world…a world where these young women willing to found a future of justice and peace. So the legacy is passed on to us—passed to MSJA circles of courageous faith-filled young women… to be founders in our time—founders of a future of justice and peace.

Welcome Back! Alums Return to the Mount -- as Teachers by Kelly Keane ’04

I

t makes a statement and brings great pride when alumnae return to their Alma Mater to teach—and the Mount is no exception. It shows that they liked the Mount enough to come back and be part of the community again.

Perhaps one of the strangest aspects of returning to the Mount for the new faculty was interacting with former teachers as coworkers instead of as students. Madeleine Harkins ’00, Lindsay Parsons ’99, and Jessica Karpuk ’00 agree that, “It is really strange to call them by their first names.”

Mount Saint Joseph Academy is happy to add three more of its alumnae to the faculty for the 2007-2008 school year: Madeleine Harkins ’00, Lydia Stieber ’96, and Lindsay Parsons ’99. They join fellow alumnae faculty members Jessica Karpuk ‘00, Mimi Strolle Bender ’72, Jean Korey, and Bernadette Korey Leonard ’73. The alumnae teachers proudly inform both students and parents of their alumnae status. As Jean Korey reflects, “I feel that both parents and students can see and feel that my enthusiasm for the Mount runs deep.” Indeed, the alumnae teachers are excited to return to the Mount because they love teaching girls, especially the girls at the Mount. MSJA Alumnae Faculty Members: Back row, left to right: Lindsay Parsons ’99, MadIn returning, they are happy to eleine Harkins ’00, Lydia Stieber ’96 and Jessica Karpuk ’00. Front row, left to right: Bernadette Korey see the cutting-edge updates Leonard ’73, Mimi Strolle Bender ’72 and Jean Korey. in areas such as technology and media, and that other things, such as the strong sense of community and support of When Mimi Strolle Bender ’72 did her student teaching here women, has remained the same. It was interesting to note that and then taught for a year right after college, she noticed that the teachers fondly remember the time spent gathered with the others had some trouble adjusting to her new role at the Mount: entire student body in the auditorium, and they find that it feels “During my first year of teaching, the administration was calling strange to be sitting there today with their homeroom of stuteachers over the loudspeaker and they called me by my full dents rather than with their friends. name, not by Ms. or Mrs., like the other faculty members.”

In recalling their years as Mounties, what Mimi Strolle Bender, Jean Korey, and Bernadette Korey Leonard cherish most was the school spirit and camaraderie during the Friday afternoon field hockey or basketball games after school, because the entire school got involved, adding to the school spirit.

Looking back on their education, the faculty all expressed gratitude for the English skills they honed while students at the Mount. They credit the structure combined with the creativity that helped prepare them not only for their writing assignments at the college level, but also in their careers.


Faculty Happenings Spotlight

Explains Lydia Stieber, “When I went to college, I felt wellprepared for writing long papers and essays in comparison to the students around me.”

Advice to Current Mounties Each faculty member had insights to share with current students, who are starting down the road they have already traveled. “Challenge yourself in all aspects -- to learn more things, to experience more joys, to understand and appreciate more people. Make sure you handle these challenges in a manner which you can be proud of in the years to come,” states Lydia Stieber ’96. On the same note, Lindsay Parsons ’99 recommends, “Don’t sweat the small stuff. Enjoy your time here.” Mimi Strolle Bender ’72 and Jessica Karpuk ’00 advise the girls to “Slow down in order to have more meaningful experiences.” Madeline Harkins ’00 agrees, while reminding the girls to “Get involved, branch out, and make many friends.” Bernadette Korey Leonard ’73 cautions, “Don’t overextend yourself. Experiment with new opportunities, but focus most of your energy into one thing and really develop it fully.” Finally, Jean Korey advises, “There are so many resources here at the Mount- the teachers, technology, the library -- take advantage of them.”

Can you guess? We were able to come up with almost all the alums’ graduation photos. Hint: the photos are in the same order as the group photo at left (Ms. Leonard’s photo was unavailable).

A Bit of Background This year is Mimi Strolle Bender’s ’72 eleventh year teaching Latin at the Mount. She studied both Latin and French at Chestnut Hill College. She went on to earn her graduate degree from Villanova University. Madeline Harkins ’00, who received her undergraduate degree from Duquesne University and graduate degree from Fordham University, teaches American and European history at the Mount. Jessica Karpuk ‘00 graduated from Georgetown University, and participated in the Teach for America program for two years. She teaches World History and AP United States Government. In the theatre and communications department, Jean Korey has been helping Mounties develop their communication skills for about seven years. She graduated from West Chester University with a B.S. in Education, and The Catholic University of America with an M.A. in Drama. She is currently teaching classes on theatre, film, and communication. It is Bernadette Korey Leonard’s ’73 fourth year teaching at the Mount. She teaches both honors and college prep courses of American Literature. She also teaches a journalism class, and is the editor of the Campanile. She is a La Salle University graduate. Lindsay Parsons ‘99 earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Delaware and teaches Algebra and Geometry to current Mounties. Lydia Stieber ’96 graduated from La Salle University with a degree in Mathematics. She has eight years of teaching experience, including four years with the Teach for America program.

A Postcard from ... El Salvador by Claire Geruson ’09 and Kelly Stefanowicz ’09

Two MSJA Juniors, Claire Geruson and Kelly Stefanowicz, volunteered this summer in El Salvador with Project FIAT, a summer service project run by the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus who serve at the girls’ elementary school, Ancillae Assumpta, in Wyncote, Pennsylvania. FIAT was first the word of Mary: “Fiat, let God make it happen in me.” It is the motto of the Handmaids, who, through the focus of Ignatian spirituality, propose to “Seek and find God in all things.” According to the Handmaids’ website, “during Project FIAT International, participants leave the comfort, efficiency, and competitiveness of their culture to enter to some extent into the values, experiences, and limiting circumstances with which billions of the world’s people live.”

A

s we took off from Philadelphia International Airport at 5:00 am on June 23, little did we know we were about to embark on the most life-changing trip of our lives. We were a part of Project FIAT, which has been dedicated to serving the Salvadorian people for the past six years. Blessed with this opportunity, we spent one week in the Handmaids’ compound working with the Salvadorian people. Our group of 30 people, ranging in age from 14 to 82, volunteered in the cities of Las Granadillas and Las Delicias for a week. Faced with a daunting language barrier, we had to apply our limited knowledge of Spanish and employ some amazing hand gestures in order to communicate with the Salvadorian people. As we helped with the construction of a retaining wall, our group experienced minor setbacks due to insufficient communication. Our small American group interacted with almost 90 Salvadorian children who were very proficient in Spanish. One of the most challenging aspects of the trip was our inability to satisfy their needs because they couldn’t tell us exactly what they wanted because of the language barrier. Kelly recalls working with the children making jewelry at a beading station, an activity she thought would require little communication. Kelly’s hypothesis was drastically readjusted when she was bombarded by 10 children anxious to begin beading their jewelry.

Claire had quite an experience while using a restroom at a church in Las Delicias.

Locked inside a cement room with steel door, Claire realized that locks in El Salvador do not function quite like the ones we have in America. She remembers thinking, “Here I am, trapped inside a public restroom in a foreign country.” The rest of the group, unaware of Claire’s whereabouts, had already filed into the church. Faced with multiple people knocking on the door speaking rapid-fire Spanish, the only Spanish phrase that came to mind was “no puedo” or “I can’t.” Thankfully, the Salvadorians made the connection that Claire could neither open the door nor understand what they were saying. Finally, a maintenance man came to Claire’s rescue and unjammed the lock. One of our fellow missionaries, Eileen, made a comment on how “We came here with about 100 pounds of supplies for the Salvadorians, but we leave with so much more and none of it fits in a suitcase.” It was true—en route to El Salvador, our suitcases bulged with donations of medicine, art supplies, sports equipment, clothes, bubbles, chalk, and toiletries (See photo at right)—but the things we took home with us, the incredibly rewarding amazing memories, w e r e carried not in a suitcase, but in our hearts. K e l l y recalled visiting the home of two young girls, both u n d e r the age of seven. Claire with children from Las Granadillas


The Mount Happenings Abroad

They led Kelly to their home where she was overwhelmed by their hospitality. The family of five offered a week’s worth of food to her, consisting of a five-pound bag of rice and some lentils, but they were more than happy to feed an American visitor. This was the most touching and humbling moment of Kelly’s trip. She recalls, “There I stood with a full-stomach and a backpack of American snacks, yet these destitute, starving people of Granadillas were emptying their entire cupboard in order to be hospitable.”

Claire remembers one day when she had finished working at the orphanage and had stopped by the town of Las Delicias. Another missionary, Regina, introduced her to a young girl named Maria, a sweet little girl who had endured her fair share of pain. Maria had been trying to talk to Regina all day, but with Regina’s limited knowledge Maria, Claire’s friend from Las Delicias of Spanish, it was difficult. Claire knew enough Spanish to communicate with Maria, who also spoke a little English, and Maria shared that her mother had just died, and she had moved in with her grandmother because she had no father. Later, while Claire was running an arts and crafts station where the children were making beaded necklaces, many of the children wanted to have their names beaded and ran up to show Claire their necklaces when they were finished. When Maria brought hers up, it was not emblazoned with her own name, but with another name. When questioned, she told Claire that it was her mother’s name. She then proceeded to flip the necklace around to show that her name was on the other side. Claire, moved by this child’s loving tribute to her mother’s memory and the simple way by which she conjoined her mother to herself, was left speechless and overcome with gratitude; this little child reminded us how important love is, and how lucky we truly are.

No air conditioning or hot water? No problem

We began to realize that there is no difference between the children we met and ourselves. We are all humans and citizens of the World.

Bringing joy to someone’s face does not need to be anything extravagant or over the top. It could simply be taking the time to make bead necklaces, play soccer (fútbol), or stop to give, and get, awesome hugs from our new Salvadorian friends.

Couple Imparts Love of Musical Theater

M

aggie and Fran Doyle, the dynamic co-directors of the Mount’s Fall Musical, Me and My Girl, bring the passion and enthusiasm from their combined 65 years of theater experience to their young charges. Full tilt into their second season here at the Mount, they take great delight in passing on their love of musical theater and enjoy watching the students “catch the bug.” Maggie, disguised by day as the Director of Finance for the Mount, has been spending seven days a week at the Mount lately, between practices and set construction. She adjusts her normal workday schedule by arriving an hour early in order to be available at 3 pm to practice with the students. Fran is employed at Norwood-Fontbonne as Maintenance Supervisor.

Special Memories “We do theater 10 months out of the year,” says Maggie, who has performed in 32 musicals. Her husband, Fran, has performed every year since he was a sophomore in high school, with the exception of the two years he served in the military. He counts among his most memorable stage moments when, at age 18, he sang in the opera Norma with Dame Joan Sutherland at the Philadelphia Academy of Music — just before he left to serve in Vietnam. On a lighter note, Maggie laughingly recalls one scene when she and Fran were cast as partners in The Music Man. “Fran was Marcellus Washburn, and I was Ethel Toppelmeier, which meant that during the number, “Shipoopie,” we got to dance together, which doesn’t often happen. As we were doing hitch kicks [alternating kicks where the legs move in a scissors motion] across the front of the stage, my sneaker flew off and hit the drummer in the head. It was one of our funnier moments!”

10

When they’re not performing, the couple can most likely be found producing, directing, choreographing or working on costumes and set construction at local theater groups, including Norwood-Fontbonne Academy’s spring musical, where they have served for the past seven years.

The “Magic” Ingredients Although the directors work hard at getting the musical polished to perfection, Maggie is quick to point out that the work and the credit rests upon many capable shoulders: producer Melissa Harrison; music director Don Holdren; choreographer Anne Spingler, and set designers Bill Pross and Chris Meisner. The first step involves choosing the right show. And just what magic ingredients constitute “the right show” at the Mount? “Strong female characters and a ‘cast of thousands’ onstage,” according to Maggie: “We love having a lot of people participate in each show.” Maggie and Fran begin researching potential shows immediately after Christmas break, but it is the entire production team that chooses a show. The next step is obtaining the rights to perform a show, a surprisingly daunting task. “If someone within 75 miles of your school is producing the same musical within six weeks of your production dates, generally you will not be granted the rights,” says Maggie. Sometimes there are other restrictions as well.


“Last year’s show, Crazy for You, required that we use 80 percent of the show’s choreography — which meant that everyone ended up tap dancing, which was a challenge since not everyone was a trained dancer.” While last year’s musical was all about dance, this year’s show is all about comedy—Maggie describes Me and My Girl as “a very ‘punny’ British comedy – very Monty Python-esque with lots of dry British humor.” As a result, Maggie and Fran devote lots of time to working with students on line delivery, which, at press time, was coming along impressively well. In one scene where the Duchess and servants are preparing for the ball, students were rehearsing the fugue—a bantering conversation that keeps time with the music. Music Director Don Holdren had worked with the students on the sequence only two days before, and the students sounded remarkable, with their British accents and spot-on timing. Such excellence from the MSJA actors comes as no surprise to Maggie.

My Summer “Job” By Megan Gimpel ’08 Last spring, the pressure was on for me to find a profitable summer job. Although I applied to many places, none of the careers seemed appealing or practical to me, as I knew I would not be around for a good portion of the summer. I needed a fun job with flexible hours and good pay. It seemed that such employment was nonexistent, until one day it hit me. When I was young, I used to attend summer theatre camps through a local company. These camps were not only the foundation of my musical and theatrical career, but also the inspiration for my summer occupation. I became the founder of a Summer Theatre Camp for children. Before I could actually receive my title as “founder,” however, I needed to first spread the word. I made up flyers advertising the Summer Theatre Camp and distributed them throughout our local Catholic school. The camp would be held at my house for one week, 9:30 to 2:30, for $100 per child. I was impressed by the amount of responses I received. The camp was split into two weeks, each week containing a maximum of six children aged seven through eleven years old. For each of the children, I wrote and mailed permission slips with contact information and liability release forms, which were to be handed in on the first day of camp. With all of the preparatory work out of the way, the only thing left to do was wait for the campers.

“We’re trying to pass on to younger generations the love of Musical Theater. You never know if the person playing in the orchestra pit today will be inspired to become the next Stephen Sondheim tomorrow.”

Each day at camp was a new adventure. I taught the kids different theatre and musical terms, games, and techniques. However, they were not the only ones learning at the Summer Theatre Camp. Had it not been for them, I would never know what a “webkin” is or what was going on with Zac Efron, the star of Disney Channel’s original movie, High School Musical. At the end of the week, the children presented the play, a short and moral selection from an American Girl Doll book, and the song we had been working on all week to their families. The amount of growth I saw in the children’s creativity and expressiveness moved me to tears. I was so proud! Afterward, speeches were made, flowers were given out, and hand-made certificates with photographs of the kids hard at work were given to the children.

“I always say that with a musical comedy—people should either come out laughing…or singing!!” says Maggie. “People will laugh when they see this show.”

The entire experience working with the kids, though tiresome, was very fulfilling. In the end, I saved a lot of money and paid my bills, all while doing what I love to do!

“We’ve found that whatever challenge we set for the students, they succeed—in fact, they exceed. These shows are definitely above high school level, but we really felt that they could do it -- and they are! They work extremely hard and we’re so proud of them. Every rehearsal we can see an improvement.” “Our philosophy is that even though many actors get paid for their craft, the amateur actor does it for the love of being onstage,” reflects Maggie.

Who’s Who in Me and My girl “Almost any actor can have a lead if it’s the right part. These students fit these parts so well. They’re all so much fun to work with.” Erica Anne Bossman ’09 -- Sally Veronica Dress ’08 -- Lady Jaquie Megan Gimpel ’08 -- Maria, the Duchess Erin Healy ’08 -- Lady Battersby Kim Whitehall ’09 -- Parchester

Excerpts from Founders’ Day Presentations

20/20 Challenge competition Global Infectious Disease Team Forms Non-Profit Organization by Elise Farano ’08 Members of the Global Infectious Disease Team present MAP Packs to Abington residents who transported the donations to Ghana, Africa.

n 2005, the Mount entered a 20/20 Challenge competition sponsored by NAIS, the National Association for Independent Schools, which focuses its efforts on alleviating global problems. Inspired by J.F. Rischard’s book High Noon: 20 Global Problems, 20 Years to Solve Them, we, the Mount’s 20/20 team, in partnership with St. Joseph’s Convent School in Jabalpur, India, and Fountain Valley School in Colorado Springs, Colorado, initiated a project on global infectious disease. Upon researching global, communicable diseases in general, our team identified a major source of disease spread: unsanitary medical supplies and supply reuse. Once our 20/20 team defined a practical solution, facilitating the allocation of sterile medical supplies to impoverished areas, we got to work connecting people, connecting knowledge, and connecting resources. In 2006, the Mount’s 20/20 team continued its efforts in the fight against global infectious disease, purchasing a Medical Assistance Package from Johnson and Johnson’s Medical Assistance program. These packages contain basic pharmaceuticals geared toward improving healthcare in impoverished areas. The medical supplies were sent to Cape Coast Regional Hospital in Cape Coast, Ghana, Africa, where citizens line up outside the hospital’s entrance once a year, waiting for these supplies and the medical mission doctors to perform much-needed surgeries and procedures. The most fatal diseases in impoverished areas are HIV/ AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis. In a single year, 5 million new cases of HIV/AIDS will be diagnosed, 500 million new cases of Malaria, and 2 million cases of Tuberculosis. In May 2007, Mount’s 20/20 team set out to reduce this overwhelming number of the sick and dying. We established medCONNECT, a non-profit organization dedicated to the fight against global infectious disease. Among the many connections we have made, a relationship formed with Sister Tessy of Senegal, Africa, renders extraordinary possibility. S. Tessy runs a medical clinic in Senegal with limited resources but endless need. By

12

January, medCONNECT plans on raising enough money to employ a full-time nurse to assist S. Tessy and the people of her village. The average salary of a nurse here in the United States is a little over $45,000, but in Senegal a nurse’s salary is only $3,600. MedCONNECT is our outlet to effect change, sustain it, and make a difference. The most effective way for you to join our efforts is to network among your family and friends who may have connections to medical supply or pharmaceutical companies, doctors, nurses, or hospital administrators. As its name suggests, medCONNECT is all about making connections. On behalf of our 20/20 team, and our new organization, I encourage you to support us in our efforts.

We are currently working with the Casady School in Oklahoma City, our friend and former classmate Ke Cai’s school in China, and the International School of Brussels in Brussels, Germany, to achieve an effectual solution to the ever-present issue of global warming. We have created a list of several initiatives to implement throughout the school year. They include the institution of a recycling program in our school in conjunction with the Science Club and CSC Animals/Environment, which most of you have already seen evidence of in hallways. We will host a Nalgene water bottle sale to reduce the use of plastics in our school community, and, most exciting, a “Global Warming” symposium to be held at the Mount, to which other area schools such as Saint Joseph’s Prep, the Agnes Irwin School, and Father Judge High School will be invited. Just as we all are enthusiastically striving to make a difference in our school community to stay true to our theme and mission statement, the 20/20 Global Warming Team desires to invoke this passion of creating change in others in order to find an efficient solution to Global Warming. On this day, when we remember how the Sisters of Saint Joseph in LePuy, France, made their powerful impact on the world, think about how you can make a difference. On behalf of the Global Warming team, I invite the student body to please take part in our initiatives. We will be receiving the Nalgene bottles shortly, and we hope you all will purchase one. The bottles will be in Mount colors and will contain the Mount’s 150th Anniversary logo. In addition, we hope you will all consider attending our symposium, which will be occurring later in the school year. Both are great opportunities for students at the Mount to be involved in making an impact.

The Mount held the 15th Annual Golf Outing on Monday, October 1st, at Blue Bell Country Club. Beautiful weather greeted the 175 golfers who had their choice of participating in the morning or afternoon shot-gun starts, or the popular instructional clinic led by Will Reilly, MSJA Golf Team Coach. Fifty-two women golfers, the highest in Mount history, participated this year!

The Mount Raises Over $100,000 for Endowment at the 15th Annual Golf Classic

The Outing was followed by cocktails, dinner and a live auction featuring items such as Phillies play-off tickets, Eagles tickets and the ever-popular Prep and LaSalle Mixer tickets. This year, half of the proceeds from the Outing benefited the Alumnae Endowed Scholarship which will be awarded to the daughter or granddaughter of an alumna who qualifies for financial need. The highlight of the evening was a presentation to Nick Giordano, who is stepping down as the Golf Committee chair after leading this successful event since 2000. Nick, father of Colette ‘93 and Jeannine ’93, is a former member of the Board of Advisors and was instrumental in establishing the Endowment at the Academy. In 2000, Nick suggested that we form a committee of alumnae, current and past parents and work toward a goal of $50,000. Since that year, the goal has risen steadily and for the past four years, the Golf Outing has netted at least $100,000 in profits each year. Sister Kathleen Brabson, SSJ, President, and Sister Mary Dacey, SSJ, former MSJA President, spoke of Nick’s dedication to the mission of the school and to his commitment to maintaining a tuition level that remains affordable. Our sincere thanks to Nick, his co-chairs, Beth and Mike Brown, and all of our committee members, sponsors, those who purchased raffle tickets and participants for continuing to make the Golf Outing one of the most successful fundraisers at the Mount!

Annual Fund Kick-Off The Mount hosted the Purple & Gold Club cocktail reception in the Library on Wednesday, September 19, 2007. Alumnae as well as current and past parents met to celebrate the kick-off to the 2007-2008 Annual Fund which will raise funds for the operating budget of the Academy. Revenue generated from tuition only covers 86% of the actual cost of educating each student. Gifts from the Annual Fund are critical to make up the difference. In 2006-07, contributions to our Annual Fund realized a total of $373,714, allowing us to install new windows throughout the building. In just a few weeks, we will launch our 200708 Annual Fund Appeal. The continuous support from parents, alumnae and friends is vital to sustain each student’s high quality curriculum. Our goal for 2007/08 is $350,000.00. All gifts, regardless of size, are greatly appreciated.

16

If you wish to make your pledge in installments, please plan to send your final payment by June 30, 2007. All gifts are fully tax deductible. Thank you for your continued generous support of MSJA. If you have any questions regarding the Annual Fund, please contact Leigh McFadden, Annual Fund Coordinator, at 215-233-3177 x160.

Dear Alumnae, No matter our age, it always seems hard to let go of the summer and prepare for the year of new challenges ahead. As with the start of the school year, however, fall brings with it an opportunity to reinvent oneself, revisit goals and reignite friendships. As I begin my term as President of the Alumnae Board, I welcome the opportunity to serve the Mount community, and I encourage all alumnae to join us as we begin another eventful year at the Mount.

A Letter from the Alumnae Association President

This year is already off to a remarkable start. Early August found a record number of alumnae at our Sixth Annual Mixer Down the Shore. Mount alumnae, parents and friends spent a relaxing summer evening at the Golden Inn in Avalon, New Jersey. Over 115 of our “Golden Girls” gathered at the Mount for our Eighth annual luncheon on September 7th. The Mount’s 15th Annual Golf Classic was held on October 1st at Blue Bell County Club. With the help of the Golf Committee, ably led, once again, by alumnae parent Nick Giordano, and joined this year by Mike and Beth Brown, the Mount raised over $100,000 for the Endowment. I am pleased to announce that 50 percent of the Golf Outing’s proceeds have been earmarked for the Alumnae Endowed Scholarship. Most recently, nearly a dozen alumnae, together with the Administration, faculty and students, hosted the Mount’s annual Open House for prospective students and their families. Mount alumnae greeted prospective students and parents, including Mount alum mothers. The Mount facilities have never looked better, nor the current students, more enthusiastic. Please join us this year for one or more events – Lunch with Santa, Celebrauction or our annual Alumnae Day festivities. Your involvement in these events not only brings our extended Mount family together, but supports the goals of the Alumnae Association. As announced in Connections, the Alumnae Board of Directors has decided to eliminate the alumnae dues structure in an effort to place all of our emphasis on increasing alumnae giving to our Annual Fund as well as increasing participation at all alumnae events. In that vein, I invite you to support the Mount while reconnecting with old friends and developing new contacts in the Mount community. On behalf of the Alumnae Association Board of Directors, I thank you for your loyal support of the Mount and look forward to the year ahead. Kind regards,

Another Successful Golden Girls Celebration Ann Csink Linck ‘57 Chair of the 2007 Golden Girls Luncheon On Friday, September 7, 2007, over 115 of our treasured Golden Girls gathered in the gymnasium of the Mount for the 8th Annual Golden Girls luncheon. This was a record number in attendance at this event. Alumnae traveled from Florida, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Puerto Rico to join us for an afternoon of making new memories and reminiscing about the old. Mary Merz Berko ’48 spoke to the group about the Mount’s 150th Anniversary year beginning next September which will include a special Golden Girls celebration at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club. She invited all of our Golden Girls to help plan this momentous event. It was truly a lovely affair.

Career Day Returns to Rave Reviews On Wednesday, October 17th, The Mount held Career Day, and judging by the students’ response, it was a very worthwhile venture!. This year, Career Day was aimed at Sophomores and Juniors and took place following their PSAT testing. Our keynote speaker, Marci Kuttler Bossow Schankweiler, Esq. ’86, spoke about founding “Crossing the Finish Line,” a nonprofit organization that provides young adult cancer patients and their families with an all-expense paid retreat. Over 25 alumnae and friends joined us to share information on their professions with the girls. Careers ranging from Event Planning to Engineering to Medicine were represented, and students enjoyed learning first-hand about the many opportunities that await them.

Mount Saint Joseph Academy Annual Report 2006-2007 25


A Message from Chairman of the Board Mount Saint Joseph Academy Annual Report 2006-2007 Dear Friends in the Mount Community: As some of you may know, my service to the Mount in an “official” capacity concluded this past May at our final Board of Directors meeting of the 2006-2007 school year. Without reservation, I can say these past 12 years of active involvement with the Mount, beginning in the fall of ’95 when oldest daughter Kate entered as a freshman, have been extraordinarily gratifying. I’ve been privileged with the opportunity to both influence and witness the continual advancement of the Academy and the everdeepening commitment to its mission among all of our constituencies. These pages bear testimony to that commitment and your belief in our important work of preparing young women for leadership roles. From alumnae to current and former parents and friends, the tremendous support of our Annual Fund, so critical to bridging the cap between tuition, revenue, and our operating expenses, allowed for some significant improvements over the past year. Completion of our window replacement program, while aesthetically pleasing, will also greatly enhance our energy efficiency. Our new phone system allows for the increased safety and security of our girls through the placement of phones in each and every classroom. Your generosity made all of this and more possible. The commitment and hard work of our Parents’ and Alumnae Associations remains unequaled. Celebrauction and our Annual Golf Outing both reached an all-time high, once again, through the time, talent, and financial support of our parents and alumnae. Thanks also to those who have joined in support of Phase II of our Capital Campaign, Foundations for the Future: Their Dreams. Our Promise. Through your investment in the Mount, we move ever closer to completing the final phase of this effort, which will result in air conditioning of the gym and auditorium, retiring of the debt incurred in Phase I, and the continued growth of our endowment fund. The benefactors listed in this report represent the past, present, and future of Mount Saint Joseph Academy. Your participation in our mission helps ensure our continued strength and stature as the premier private Catholic academy for young women in the Delaware Valley. In my parting comments to the Board of Directors this past May, I expressed a deep sense of gratitude for what the Mount has meant for my daughters and for the wonderful friendships with fellow parents, alumnae, faculty, administration, and Board members… friendships which will last a lifetime. It has indeed been a privilege to serve all of you in serving the Mount, and an experience I will cherish always. Congratulations and best of luck to my successor as Board Chair, Art Pasquerella, a terrific and most capable individual who shares my passion for the Mount. Finally, my most sincere thanks to our “CEO,” Sister Kathleen Brabson, SSJ, for her inspired and energetic guidance and leadership.

In 2001, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania established the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program to enable private businesses to designate educational grant funds to schools of their choice and receive a tax credit in return. The EITC provides the opportunity for schools like Mount Saint Joseph Academy to benefit from scholarship funds for students needing financial aid. EITC allows businesses to receive a tax credit equal to 75 percent of its contribution to a scholarship organization up to a maximum of $100,000 per taxable year. The tax credit increases to 90 percent for the business should they commit to donating the same amount to the organization for two consecutive years. For more information on this program, contact Maggie Doyle in the MSJA Finance Office at (215)-233-3177, ext. 316. We are immensely grateful to the following businesses for contributing to the Mount through the EITC Program during the 2006-2007 school year.

Sister Claire Hélène Society Mount Saint Joseph Academy Annual Report 2006-2007 We acknowledge with deep gratitude the following who have provided for the Mount’s future:

Planned gifts and bequests play an important role in the voluntary support of Mount Saint Joseph Academy. The Sister Claire Hélène Society has been established to honor those alumnae and friends of Mount Saint Joseph Academy who have continued a tradition of remembrance at their alma mater. The society is named in memory of a beloved Latin, relgion and French teacher who inspired two generations of alumnae of both the “old” and the “new” Mount. Members of the Sister Claire Hélène Society are those who have left a bequest to the Academy, or have notified the school that they have created a provision in their estate plans to benefit the Mount. These provisions include trusts, arranging bequests and making gifts of life insurance, naming the school as a beneficiary. These gifts become a permanent part of the Endowment, providing a source of income upon which the school can depend and use to plan for generations to come.
