Veritas Volume 2, Issue 1. Fall 2011
ith great pride and joy, we dedicate this second edition of VERITAS to the Adrian Dominican Sisters, our Board of Directors, students, faculty, staff, parents, alumnae, friends, associates, and generous donors. Your passion, dedication, and commitment are vital to Regina Dominican’s mission to educate young women in an environment that is Catholic, Dominican, and college preparatory. As you read each article in this publication, you will be touched by a vibrant school community marked by the Dominican pillars: prayer, study, community and service. A highlight of the 2010-2011 school year was the undertaking of a visioning and strategic process, entitled Vision 2020. The Board of Directors has engaged Jean Egmon, Ed.D. to guide us through this strategic planning process and to coach us through implementation of our vision. Dr. Egmon is a faculty member at the Managerial Economics and Decision Sciences Department within the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. She is also the president of Third Angle, Inc., a consulting firm dedicated to working with organizations to identify strategic niches and design strategies, marketing approaches, and organizational environments to move them into the future, while re-invigorating what is truly core to their identity and purpose. Vision 2020 is second only to the school’s founding in terms of O good and gracious God, its breadth, depth, and potential.

4 Regina Dominican Magazine • Fall 2011
uring the summer of 2007, Karina Kedo ’11 was riding her bike to a volunteer job at a local day camp when she was struck by a large SUV making a right turn at a red light. Karina was fortunate to walk away only slightly injured, but the driver of that car later admitted to being on her cell phone at the time of the accident. While a student at Regina, Karina drove 30 minutes to and from school every day. During her daily commute, Karina noticed an extraordinary number of drivers talking and texting on their cell phones while driving. "Once I started driving, I noticed all these people texting and I knew what happened to me so I wanted to do something," said Karina. "I had attended a youth leadership conference in Chicago and was inspired to start a leadership project in high school.” Karina’s accident, her participation in the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) program, and her commuting observations led Karina to start STATIC Now Illinois, a campaign to stop people from talking and texting in cars while driving.
What defines a true Regina Girl? It’s not just arriving on campus for class each weekday or donning the school’s traditional wool skirts. It’s not simply floating from home to class and back again. Over the past few decades, we have come to realize that Regina Girls maintain much more than lackluster attitudes toward school and community life. Regina Girls are athletes, true academics, and volunteers, but they are also so much more than that. The values of Regina Girls line up accordingly with the four pillars of Dominican life, which are study, prayer, preaching, and community. Regina Girls create, minister, lead, perform, and maybe most importantly, give back. Regina Girl, Karina Kedo ’11, knows the delicate balance of the four Dominican pillars all too well, as this past year she demonstrated each of them during the launch

of STATIC (Stop Talking and Texting in Cars) Now Illinois, a campaign to stop people from talking and texting in cars while driving. Through various fundraising efforts, and with the generous support of sponsor Bob Clifford and Clifford Law Offices in Chicago, Karina raised more than $20,000 for the purchase of two virtual driving simulators which have been used to help further articulate the dangers of distracted driving. Karina officially launched her STATIC Now Illinois campaign at a rally on October 12, 2010, at Regina Dominican High School’s O’Shaughnessy Theater. In attendance were Secretary of State Jesse White and State Representative John D’Amico (D-15th District, Chicago). Also present was Lindsay Anderson, Governor Pat Quinn’s Director of Legislative Affairs. “What can we say about Karina,” said Secretary of State Jesse White, “other than that you are the best and the brightest, and your heart is big. You are on a mission.” The Dominican pillar of prayer was quite evident during the media launch of STATIC Now Illinois, as Karina’s father, Paul, lost his battle with terminal cancer just the day before the event. Paul Kedo had been ill for some time, and Karina gained closure with her father before his passing. Despite this great loss within her family, Karina continued on with the media launch as planned. She introduced her initiative to a crowd of hundreds while demonstrating maturity, dedication, and an astonishing amount of grace. Bob Clifford, sponsor of STATIC Now Illinois, told the audience, “she, being the brave soul that she is, is here today because she knows that what she started is not about her, it’s about our community and making our community a safer, better place to live.” According to the Automobile Association of America, nearly half of all teen drivers have texted while driving. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says
6 Regina Dominican Magazine • Fall 2011
more than one quarter of the 1.2 million auto collisions that occur each year involve a distracted driver. Last year, Illinois became the 17th state to ban texting while driving. That law took effect in 2010. Over 60 area high schools were invited to attend the October media launch to learn more about STATIC Now Illinois and to experience the virtual driving simulators. The simulators were available for student use at Regina during STATIC Now Illinois week and have since traveled to area schools such as Chicago Urban Charter Prep Academy, Carmel Catholic High School, and Buffalo Grove High School at no expense, so students could experience first-hand the dangers of texting and talking on cell phones while driving. Karina hoped the experience was a wakeup call to her peers. “I just want new drivers to see the dangers because when you first get your license you think you can handle it, and you really can’t,” she explained. “I want them to understand that multitasking is a big temptation, but it’s not safe or possible while driving. I want them to see it before it’s too late.” At the media launch, Lindsay Anderson presented Karina with a proclamation from Governor Quinn which declared October 12 as STATIC Now Illinois Day, “to promote the importance of ending cell phone use while driving and to affirm the continued commitment of Illinois in ensuring that motorists travel safely in the Land of Lincoln.” Following the virtual driving demonstration, students at the launch were encouraged to sign Secretary of State Jesse White’s pledge against texting and talking on cell phones while driving. At Regina’s Convocation ceremony on May 26, Karina was recognized for her community outreach efforts and was presented with the Maureen Brannen Scholarship Award, the W.W. Grainger Scholarship and the Prudential Spirit of Community Award for making a significant contribution to
her community and for distinguished achievements in community service. Not only did Karina exemplify the Dominican pillar of community during her time at Regina, but her academic achievements proved outstanding and epitomized the pillar of study. Throughout her four high school years, Karina maintained a grade point average of 5.0 or above and graduated with Superior Honors with Highest Distinction. At Convocation, Karina was also recognized as an Illinois State Scholar and as a Presidential Scholar. Additionally, for her academic excellence, service, and leadership, Karina was named a Regina Medalist in Spanish, which is a high honor among Regina alumnae. As cross country team captain, member of the Senior Leadership Board, a National Honors Society and Spanish National Honors Society officer, Ambassadors Club officer and member of the track and field team, Karina knew how important it was to be involved during her time at Regina. She attributes the school’s environment to joining so many organizations. “Now that I’ve graduated, it’s easy for me to look back and know that I wouldn’t have been able to do all the things I did at Regina at a co-ed school,” said Karina. “So much of what I did were fun activities; it made the most sense to take advantage of what Regina had to offer.”
From the launch of STATIC Now Illinois to graduating high school, Karina has learned a lot about what it means to give back. “I never realized how many opportunities I’ve been given or how lucky I have been in life. I think it’s my responsibility to do something with the resources I’ve been given.” Karina will attend Northwestern University in the fall and hopes to continue her volunteer efforts throughout college. As for the future of STATIC, the simulators are being donated to SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), and Karina will stay involved by maintaining the STATIC website. STATIC Now Illinois has made a big impact on Karina and she is thankful for all of the people who helped her along the way. She gives much credit to Regina for giving her the strength she needed for such an endeavor. “It sounds cliché,” said Karina, “but I had never realized before Regina that I had the ability to create something that could reach so many people and potentially save lives. The truth is, all Regina students do. It’s amazing.” For being named the Regina Medalist in Spanish, Karina’s picture will hang in the first floor hallway throughout the 2011-2012 school year. However, considering her philanthropic nature, unwavering devotion to the mission of STATIC Now Illinois and her loyalty to Regina Dominican, Karina’s legacy as a true Regina Girl will undoubtedly live on for years to come.

Regina Around the World
This summer I went on a weeklong service trip to Piura, Peru with my Dad. We stayed at a parish called Santisimo Sacramento where my Dad knows the pastor, Father Joe, who is a friend from college. Throughout the week we did several different volunteer activities. They were as simple as having lunch with families from the parish, or something much more difficult, such as building a house. The people of Piura were all so amazing and friendly, and it was incredible to see people in such poverty having these high spirits. My favorite part of the trip was definitely spending time with all of the children by visiting the schools and orphanages. They were always so excited to see us volunteers and made us feel so welcome. My trip was an amazing experience and I hope to go again next year! – Colleen Morris ’13
hroughout the school year many Regina Dominican students and faculty members were given fantastic opportunities to travel the world for study and service trips. Read on about a few Regina Girls and one teacher who seized the chance to enjoy what traveling abroad has to offer!
Regina’s Summer Immersion Program 2011 in Antigua, Guatemala was a great success. Antigua is beautiful, touristy and thriving! Our six Regina students studied conversational Spanish and grammar with private tutors for four hours every morning. We also got the opportunity to meet other language students from all over the world. Our Guatemalan families were extremely welcoming and the food was delicioso. Most afternoons, we helped with service projects at the orphanage Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos, Escuela Esperanza, an English language school, or helped with the construction of homes in underdeveloped pueblos. Weekend excursions were absolutely amazing; we visited Mayan ruins, toured an island off Belize, and stayed cool at Lake Atitlan. Our students were inspiring to watch as they interacted with individuals from around the world. It was a joy to be a part of such an incredible experience! ¡Adios! – Chrissy Lauinger, Spanish Teacher

Last March, I left for World Chicago’s US-Serbia Exchange that took me and 16 high school students from all over the US to Serbia for two weeks. The U.S. State Department sponsors the program to teach Serbian youth about democracy, volunteerism, and youth activism. It was exciting to experience a new culture. I lived with a Serbian family for a week, and went to school with my host sister. We helped the Serbian students who had visited Chicago and other US cities on the same program with “action plans”. One student organized an anti-littering “Clean Up the Park” program. Another worked to start an animal shelter because abandoned dogs travel in packs and have been known to attack small children on their way to kindergarten in Serbia. As part of the program I also had to create an “action plan”. I organized a program for girls at the local YMCA in Evanston where I once attended an afterschool program. The idea was to teach them fun math games and encourage them to practice math over the summer and study advanced math in school. I gained a lot of confidence and plan to continue with “action plans” both at Regina and beyond!

museum-quality display has replaced the rumble in the jungle on the Regina bridge. The 37-year-old mural has been painted over due to construction of the Writing Center. “In order for the new Writing Center in the back of the library to be up to code, we need to add new doors,” According to Kerrigan McNulty ’98, Director of Advancement. This would mean that parts of the jungle would be cut out, McNulty said. But Regina’s artistic past is not forgotten. The newly painted wall now showcases the school’s history by exhibiting every yearbook cover since 1961, a total of 50 yearbooks when this year’s is added. This display has been sponsored by the class of 1990 in memory of Catherine Stephan Gravelle ’90. Some alumnae, current faculty and students have mixed feelings about painting over the jungle. “That wall is part of my day,” said Verna Allworth ’77, English teacher. “When I first started teaching at Regina, I taught in 220 and then moved to a classroom on the bridge,

I was always in the jungle,” Allworth recalled, “When I would go to yearbook, the wall brightened my day.” While nostalgic about the jungle, Allworth stated the yearbook covers were also pieces of art. “Seeing the yearbook covers will also give people an idea of how yearbooks as art have evolved,” Allworth said. “The yearbook covers are interesting to look at, I always find new ones I like when I walk past the wall everyday,” said Gianna Funkhouser ’11. In the last 25 years, yearbooks have been designed using photographs, paintings, watercolor, and computer programs. Yet one thing remains the same throughout them all – each has been conceived and created by students of Regina. “It is really just art replacing art, one is not better than the other,” said Allworth. “I’m going to miss seeing the jungle, but the new framed yearbooks bring a fresh look to the Regina bridge,” said Caroline Reilly ’14.

dress design made of newspapers and magazines. In the spring, Maureen put together the school’s first week long recycling contest between classes. Each homeroom competed for prizes and out of uniform days by collecting paper, ink cartridges, and electronics. “Recycling not only saves space in the landfills but it also saves energy,” said Maureen in an interview with Crown. “It is easier to make new products out of recycled products rather than starting from scratch.”

Panthers Softball Catch Conference Title
Regina Welcomes Kerry Durham ’85 as Head Basketball Coach
he Regina Dominican Athletic department is very pleased to announce that Regina alumna, Kerry Durham ’85, is the new Head Basketball Coach. In the spring, she was introduced to next year’s basketball hopefuls. Athletic Director, Bob Carlson, told the girls that he is very excited to have Kerry back at Regina. “It’s great for you girls to work with an alumna and most obvious, given Kerry’s track record, I’m excited to take this program to the next level.” Kerry has much experience both playing and coaching basketball. She is a graduate of Xavier University where she played on a Division 1 basketball scholarship and served as team captain. Most recently, Kerry was leading teams at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Glenview. From 1999-2009, she was Head Coach at Resurrection High School and led her team to two consecutive Conference Championships. Prior to that, she was Assistant Varsity Women’s Basketball Coach for two State Championship teams at Loyola Academy. In 2006, Kerry was inducted into the GCAC Hall of Fame for

espite cold temperatures and constant rain, the Varsity softball team triumphed through the season, capping it with a conference title. While the team started off below .500, there was never a doubt in new Head Coach Jim Goranson’s mind that the team would overcome each adversity faced and develop into
her high school performance and post-college coaching positions. At the meeting with Regina’s basketball hopefuls, Kerry explained her coaching style and what she expects out of the girls in the fall. She is ready to hit the ground running and armed the students with packets of information for summer camps, clinics and tournaments. As she spoke to the girls in the Regina gymnasium, she made mention of the 1984 GCAC Final Four banner with her name emblazoned on top. “I am looking for history to repeat itself,” she told the girls. “I’m positive we can bring this program to where it has been in the past.”
Regina Grads to Play College Sports confident players who effortlessly combined technique with fun. Midway through the season the girls found that confidence and racked up some wins with a six game winning streak. “Coach Goranson really pushed us so that we would all tremendously improve our game,” senior captain Holly Hoenig ’11 said.

The Panthers did improve their game and eventually found themselves in the GCAC White Division Championship. Helping clinch the title were Jenny Fox ’12 and Danielle Devlin ’13, who each hit homeruns, while Katie Broderick ’11 and Kati Herberg ’12 had two hits apiece. Devlin and Herberg were also selected to the GCAC All-Conference team.
Following the conference victory, the Panthers competed into the postseason, but fell short in the Regional Championship game. The team lost 4-0 to Vernon Hills, but the score does not reflect how well Regina played. “It obviously would have been ideal to win Regionals, but knowing that our girls played their very best in that game was satisfying
enough,” new Assistant Coach, Katherine Fernholz ’06, said. The Panthers’ goal throughout the season was to get better with each practice or game. The girls worked hard during the season while encouraging each other to improve and achieve that goal. The team practiced over the summer and is ready for next season.

ver the past year, the Alumnae Office was met by an overwhelming response each and every time we asked for your help. Career Day 2010 brought our highest alumnae participation to date, with over 80% of the day’s speakers having graduated from Regina. Your willingness to donate your time for A-Team events such as brunch at Ronald McDonald House and helping with the holiday rush at Misericordia’s Hearts & Flour Bakery was astounding. Further, we are eternally grateful to the many generous alumnae who helped support the Black & White Benefit by donating auction items. I cannot stress enough how much we appreciate your commitment to Regina. This May marked the end of my time at Regina in the role of Alumnae Coordinator. My husband and I had our second child this past June, and I will not be returning to my position in the fall. While we are thrilled to welcome this newest addition to our family, it will be difficult to say goodbye to my post here at Regina. Please join me in welcoming Melissa Morrissey Walton ’97 as your new Alumnae Coordinator! I have so enjoyed having the opportunity to communicate with many of you, and I am especially grateful to those who have reached out to offer feedback and suggestions for the ways in which the Alumnae Office can better meet your needs.

On to New Adventures
Welcome, Class of 2011!
Verna Allworth ’77 reflects on 25 years of working alongside Sister Deb Fumagalli
or thousands of Regina students who have studied in her classroom, Sister Deb Fumagalli, OSF, has been a philosopher, a teacher, a photographer, a minister, and a mentor. For me, she is a colleague, a friend, and a source of professional and personal development. Deb is a born educator. With a passion for learning, she is, herself, a student of pedagogy. Her studentcentered classroom was a model of best practices, where young women were challenged to think critically in a scholarly atmosphere of mutual respect. A creative thinker and walking thesaurus, Deb was admired among her colleagues for her pursuit of excellence. Whether we were discussing the merits of digital portfolios, backwards design, or re-working our yearbook curriculum for the umpteenth time, she always inspired me to think more, learn more, and do more. I suppose it’s only fitting for a teacher of philosophy to embody the words of St. Thomas of Aquinas, who wrote: “Better to illuminate than merely to shine, to deliver to others contemplated truths than merely to contemplate.” Deb balances contemplation and action to encourage others to be catalysts of change. Her travels to Central America and her work with the 8th Day Center raised my awareness of social injustices. Through her ministry, she enlightened my perspective of the role of women in the Church. Her Women’s Spirituality course supported the needs of young women growing in their faith. As an instrument of peace, Deb lives the prayer of St. Francis while upholding the values of Veritas, compassion and respect. She models the framework for living an authentic Christian life. This spring, Deb was elected to serve a four-year term on the U.S. Provincial Team for the School Sisters of St. Francis. In her new position, she will channel her professional and personal gifts to further the vision and mission of her order. She leaves behind a legacy of excellence in the spirit of true educational leadership. Thank you, Sister Deb, for 28 years of dedication to Regina Dominican High School!

Reg na Girls
egina Dominican challenges its students to inspire and lead. Through the past several decades, these alumnae have dedicated themselves to living out the Regina mission of lifetime leadership with respect for all. The following are a group of inspirational women who have dedicated their lives to giving back in both big and small ways.
The Honorable Virginia Cowhey Kendall ’80
At Regina Dominican’s graduation ceremony on May 28, Sister Mary Margaret presented The Honorable Virginia Cowhey Kendall, JD ’80, with the Alumna Medal. Judge Kendall was chosen to receive this honor because she embodies the core values and beliefs of Regina Dominican High School and the Adrian Dominican Sisters, which flow from the Dominican pillars of prayer, study, community and service. In January 2006, Judge Kendall was appointed to the federal bench as judge in the United States
The Honorable Virginia Cowhey Kendall delivers the commencement address at the 51st Baccalaureate and Commencement Ceremony.
District Court, Northern District of Illinois. She is an adjunct professor at Loyola University School of Law and Northwestern University Law School. Throughout her professional career, Judge Kendall has been a strong voice, both nationally and internationally, for the rights of women and the vulnerable of our society. She also served on the Regina Dominican Board of Directors from 1989 to 1992. At Regina’s graduation ceremony, Judge Kendall delivered the commencement address and gave the Class of 2011 four key pieces of advice: “When your plans don’t go as expected, get over it and move on, do not let others define you, think of others as often as you can, and be kind to each other.” She explained to the class that they will try and fail, but it is how they respond to life’s difficulties with grace, determination, and faith, that matter most. Judge Kendall reminded the graduates, “if we took the expected path, there would be no leaders.” Judge Kendall shares her wealth of knowledge by publishing law journal articles on a variety of topics including child molestation statutes and community reform projects. She has selflessly traveled to Nairobi, Kenya to train investigators, trial attorneys, and judges on effective use of the recently-enacted Kenyan public corruption laws and sexual offense laws. She has
traveled to Zambia to teach judges there about crimes against women and will travel later this year to continue her training on anti-human trafficking laws and procedures through the State Department and Lawyers without Borders. Judge Kendall has also continued to participate in a number of service projects that support high school students, including moderating service trips to Peru, establishing trial training programs in both Chicago Public Schools and the federal courts, and developing awareness and support programs to curb gun violence and aid offender re-entry into the community. Judge Kendall credits her family for influencing her career choice. She told the Federal Judiciary in a video special named Pathways to the Bench, “I wanted to go into a profession where I could help someone, where I could make a difference in their life personally. I didn’t picture myself fighting fires just like my grandparents, but I certainly did picture myself using the gifts that God gave me.”
Megan ’90 & Anne Riordan ’99
Megan ’90 and Anne Riordan ’99 are two alumnae who believe in the power of giving back to the community. Both sisters were U.S. Peace Corps volunteers (Megan served in Kazakhstan in 1995-1997, and Anne in Mongolia from 2003-2005) and they continue to draw upon the Adrian Dominican values of justice and equality in their current careers. Megan and Anne believe that the education they received at Regina was significant in helping them develop into the socially-minded women they are today.

My teachers at Regina instilled in me a serious work ethic which has paid off in college, graduate school and beyond.

Janice Klein Rodda ’70
Janice Klein Rodda ’70 feels it was an honor to go to Regina. With a learning disability, Janice admitted feeling as though she might not have been able to make it at Regina. It had been recommended that Janice attend a school that could better suit her needs, but she wanted the chance to have a traditional high school experience. Regina had faith in Janice, and with the help from her mother and Janice’s dedication to pushing past obstacles, she graduated with the class of 1970. Janice believes that attending the College of St. Catherine’s gave her the confidence to tackle her severe learning disability and to take on the world. After college, Janice ran a support group for moms who have a child with multiple disabilities, as her first born son did. She pursued a counseling degree to work with adults with disabilities and managed to graduate with a 3.7 grade point average and a Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling. Janice uses her degree to run an independent living skills training program and a summer camp and says her next 50 years are dedicated to “paying it forward”. She’s currently enjoying paying it forward by way of volunteer projects and a mission trip to India to vaccinate children against polio. In July, she spent time in Haiti to help promote self confidence and self esteem through soccer programs and home rebuilding. Janice is committed to helping those in need and admits she “owes all I am and continue to be to Regina and my mom. Thanks Regina for giving me a life I may have never had the chance to experience, and for giving me the opportunity to help so many adults with disabilities as I was helped through your compassionate staff and my mom. God Bless all the teachers; you never know how you will change a person’s life”.

works towards making it more difficult to purchase acid products that can be used as a violent weapon. Appearing before the Chicago City Council Finance Committee this year, Karli was responsible for influencing a fine increase for using caustic substances as a weapon as well as making them more difficult to buy. Her ultimate goal is to take their case to the General Assembly and make the measures statewide. During her visit back to Regina, Karli captivated the girls, recounting how she bounced back from the life-altering attack. Karli told the audience, “I suffered the consequences of someone else’s actions, I’ve been much more careful about the people I allow into my life, especially boyfriends. And I advise the same for you ladies.” Karli
believes her attack was in revenge against someone she was dating at the time. Karli’s message to Regina girls was also about moving beyond tragedy and not letting anyone else define you. “I am not my scars,” she stated during her presentation. Since Karli’s visit back to Regina, her life has changed in many wonderful ways: she is expecting her first child in early November and in April, the legislation that she lobbied for passed unanimously. Regarding the vote of 58-0 in favor of the acid registration bill Karli said, “that is one thing that I’m most proud of.”

In 2006, the Regina Dominican Ambassadors Club raised money through bake sales to donate to Bryan’s recovery and rehabilitation. Anderson rallied with Spoke Heroes for this event to tell the young women how important service is, and that in life, there are really no obstacles to what you want to achieve. “It was astonishing how this man, despite everything he had been through, was there giving us young women advice on what service and giving back meant to him,” said Emily Rojas ’12. “It made me appreciate the gift of life.” After the introductions, the group ventured off on a four mile bike ride from the Queen of All Saints parking lot to Misericordia. While there, the participants broke off into groups and worked on projects with residents and enjoyed lunch. “Even though we traveled as a group and had the same purpose, we were able to split up and work individually or in pairs with the residents of Misericordia,” said Shannon Kraemer ’12.

n August 18, 2010, Karen McKeegan Fraid and family welcomed Charlotte Eliza Fraid into the world. On August 26, Charlotte underwent nearly eight hours of open heart surgery and spent a month at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago. During that time, she was diagnosed with 22q11 chromosome deletion, a genetic disorder that occurs spontaneously in most cases and affects all systems of the body. Charlotte has taken it all in stride, eager to prove all of her doctors and specialists wrong. In just 11 months, she has closed the gap from an 80% delay in development and physical abilities to just 20%. Charlotte’s doctors have high hopes for her future and for a long, happy life. In fact, her last round of cardiac testing placed her in normal range for the first time. In August of 2011, Charlotte’s older brothers (Xavier, 8 and Conor, 5) helped prepare a huge birthday blowout for their sister, as the entire Fraid family had so much more to celebrate this year. Instead of presents, the family chose to pay it forward by collecting donations for Children’s Memorial Hospital to give a gift in Charlotte’s name. The Fraid family would like to help other children with chronic conditions whose families cannot afford care. Charlotte is doing great and her family hopes that sharing her story will encourage any alumna facing the uphill battle of a child with a chronic condition. Charlotte still has a lifetime of challenges facing her, but with the support of family and friends (many of whom are Regina grads), the battle is already half won!

he Advancement Office is proud to announce the completion of its most recent project, the compilation of Regina Dominican yearbook covers (beginning with 1961), each color-printed, framed, and on display along the second-story bridge to the fine arts wing. This project has been dedicated in loving memory of Catherine Stephan Gravelle ’90, who passed away in June 2010. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Catherine’s classmates, who raised enough money at their 20th reunion celebration last fall to fund the project in its entirety. On April 2, 2011, members of the class of 1990 gathered at Regina along with Catherine’s husband, Michael, and children (Madeline, Charles, and James) for a dedication ceremony led by school President Sister Mary Margaret Pachucki, OP. During the ceremony, Michael and the children blessed a plaque inscribed with Catherine’s name and her quote from the 1990 yearbook : “May God keep you in His tender care, ’til He brings us together again.” Catherine’s classmates, Mary Beth Lucas Loverdi ’90 and Maureen Toomey Burm ’90, shared some happy memories of Catherine’s years as a student at Regina, where she served as a member of the Yearbook staff. Following the ceremony, members of the class of 1990 and their families caught up with one another at a reception held in Regina’s library. Catherine’s classmates enjoyed toasting and celebrating the memory of Catherine, who clearly left an impression on every person she met. “She would be so thrilled and proud,” said Sheila Tully Oliver ’90.

Regina Teachers Inspired by Story of Faith
n January, Regina Dominican had the pleasure of welcoming Immaculee Ilibagiza, a Rwandan genocide survivor and best-selling author of Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust. In a morning presentation to the student body and in an evening presentation to the general public, Ilibagiza spoke of the importance of spreading faith, hope, and forgiveness to everyone, everywhere. During the 1994 Rwandan genocide, Ilibagiza and seven other women spent 91 days huddled together silently hiding in a 3x4 foot bathroom of a local pastor’s house. During that horrific ordeal, Ilibagiza lost most of her family, but she survived to share the story and her miraculous transition into forgiveness and a profound relationship with God. Shortly after hearing the presentation, Tom Hagensick, a Math teacher at Regina, read Ilibagiza’s book Left to Tell. He was deeply moved by the account and the details of the massacre of the Tutsi people in Rwanda. Hagensick said, “I couldn’t imagine what it must have been like for the eight women to share that tiny bathroom for 90 days.” Hagensick teamed up with Regina’s Music Director, Dave Hiett, and they organized some interested students to build a replica of that space. “We constructed the bathroom, and placed it in the chapel so others could experience how small the space was. We felt the replica would serve as a place where, during Lent, students and faculty could quietly pray and meditate on Immaculee’s confinement.” “It’s so small, I can’t imagine living like this,” said Megan Cusack ’11, a senior at Regina Dominican. During Lent, students crowded in the replica together to see what Ilibagiza’s life was like during those 91 days.

The DOMINICAN PREACHERS
ach year, six Regina girls are invited to participate in the Dominican Preaching High School Conference in Adrian, Michigan. During this conference they join with students from Dominican high schools across the country to discover and deepen the preacher within themselves through prayer, study, community and interaction with members of the Dominican Family. These young men and women discover different ways to incorporate the four pillars of Dominican Life (prayer, community, study, and preaching) into the daily life of their schools. They learn that each of us is called to preach the Gospel in our own unique way. At the end of the conference, the students from each school create their Action Plan for the coming school year. This plan is usually implemented through the Campus Ministry Department of the school. During the past school year our Preachers Action Plan focused on encouraging service in the school community, incorporating the Dominican motto of “Veritas” in school activities and student groups, and promoting enthusiastic student involvement in school liturgies and prayer services. To highlight their role in the school, the Dominican Preachers were commissioned at the Opening Liturgy of the academic year, and graduating seniors received black and white cords symbolic of the Dominican Order.

Parents Awarded for Service
ith great honor, President Sister Mary Margaret Pachucki, OP, presented Judith Hamill and Tom Jaconetty with the Saint Martin de Porres Award at Regina’s annual President’s Brunch on September 26, 2010. The award acknowledges recent grad parents who are outstanding examples of the Dominican pillar of service. Saint Martin de Porres was a Dominican Brother who lived in the 16th century in Lima, Peru. Martin spent his entire life in charitable service to others. Whatever the need, Martin responded with deep compassion and humility. President Sister Mary Margaret Pachucki, OP presents Judith Hamill and Tom Jaconetty the St. Martin de Porres Award.
Tom and Judith joined the Regina community in 2006 when their daughter, Nicole, enrolled in the class of 2010. Tom Jaconetty presents his daughter, Nicole, with “During those four years they responded her diploma at Regina’s graciously to many requests made by our 2010 graduation ceremony. school parents,” said Sister Mary Margaret. “They were always ready to provide time and energy.” Sister Mary Margaret recognized Tom and Judith for their endless hours spent planting flowers in Regina’s gardens and for making sure the planters in front of school and the auditorium were at their best for any occasion. Sister Mary Margaret also noted, “Whenever they saw a need they responded without hesitation.” Although Nicole has graduated from Regina, Tom continues to serve the school as a Board member. Both Judith and Tom remain committed to the life and vision of Regina Dominican High School. “Judith and I believe that one of the gifts we can all give—no matter what our means or our station in life—is service. We should take the time to lighten the load. We should take the time to be a part. We should take the time to embrace the mission. And, after we have done so, we all will look back and feel that we have had a part in something much bigger and more important than ourselves—the forming of educated young women whose presence in this world will truly make a difference.” – Tom Jaconetty

Dear Friends of Regina Dominican,
am a proud member of the charter class of Regina Dominican. Our class registered in a construction trailer and first walked the halls in September 1958. Throughout all these years we have been blessed with many loyal and generous benefactors, who believe in the vision of the Adrian Dominican Sisters. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to express our gratitude for your time, your expertise and above all your continued financial support. Your generosity has allowed Regina Dominican to continue our commitment to Catholic, Dominican, female-centered education for college prep and beyond. I firmly believe that all of us are called to be Dominicans, whose motto is: “To contemplate and to give to others the fruits of our contemplation.” This is my first year as Chair of the Board of Directors of Regina Dominican. I am awed by the dedication and commitment to those who have preceded me. It is amazing to see what our young women have accomplished through the mentoring of this community: administration, faculty, staff, parents and alumnae, working together to fulfill our mission. We are at a true crossroad in our journey. Vision 2020 will position Regina Dominican as a leader in the formation of young women as global leaders. On behalf of the Board, I thank you for your continued support.

Regina Fund Beats Goal 2nd Year in a Row
hanks to very generous alumnae, parents and friends, the Regina Fund raised $345,000. Through an annual appeal, the Regina Fund raises money to support the school’s operating expenses, financial aid and capital improvements. The cost of running Regina Dominican is over $13,000 per student. However, tuition is only $10,500. This gap of $2,500 per student is covered through our fundraising efforts, including the events program, the major gift program and the Regina Fund. The Regina Fund also provides much needed financial aid for 52% of our students. Through the Regina Fund, donations can be made to the Alumnae Scholarship Fund or to the Sponsor a Student Program. Both of these programs enable Regina to provide over $300,000 in tuition assistance.

In addition to aiding the operating budget, the Regina Fund supports technology upgrades, faculty development, building and grounds improvements and scholarship and tuition assistance. The following donors have contributed to the Regina Dominican Fund in the last fiscal year between July 1, 2010 and July 30, 2011.

Scholarships at Regina Dominican
t the 2011 Black and White Benefit, the scholarship auction raised $30,000 for tuition assistance. This helped support the nearly $350,000 Regina offered in financial aid to 175 deserving students during the 2010-2011 school year. It is a goal of Regina Dominican High School to ensure that no student is denied a Catholic, Dominican education because of financial constraints. It is with your help that we can reach this goal. In this tough economic time, the best investment you can make is in the future of a Regina Girl. Every family at Regina pays something toward their tuition commitment; financial assistance only funds a portion of the tuition costs. It is also important to note that students receiving financial assistance must maintain a grade average of 85%. Tuition assistance is funded through the Regina Dominican Fund, the Alumnae Scholarship Fund, the Sponsor a Student program and numerous endowed scholarships.
Alumnae Scholarship Fund
The Alumnae Scholarship fund was established to provide tuition assistance for those students who demonstrate financial need and are in good academic standing. The Alumnae Scholarship Fund is supported through gifts made by generous donors and through the Scholarship Auction held at the annual Black and White Benefit. Gifts can be made in honor of or in memory of a loved one. Below is a list of the 2010-2011 awards given through the Alumnae Scholarship Fund. Margaret “Peggy” Brennan Baker Scholarship Award S. Martinelle Bonnell, OSF, Ph.D. Leadership Award S. Rita Cecile Boyle, OP Scholarship Award Hon. Joan Corboy ’70 Scholarship Award S. Ann Fallon, OP Leadership Award Patricia Astor Gomez ’84 Foundation Award Roseann Harrington ’87 Award Mary “Lyz” Heirich ’63 Scholarship Award Helen Mary House Scholarship Award Nancy Kane Scholarship Award Elizabeth ’02 and Jacob Kotecki Memorial Scholarship Award Mary Jo Kunzer ’81 Memorial Scholarship Award S. Joan Marie Meidinger Award Rey Pascua Scholarship Award S. Piennette, OP Scholarship Award Betty Schayer Memorial Award Senior Class Award Regina Dominican Dance Scholarship Award
Mary Cathlin Sullivan ’02 presents Victoria Kane ’11 with the Kay and George Penman Sullivan Senior Award for Catholic Action.
Sponsor a Student
Through the Sponsor a Student program, donors can invest in a student who is need of financial aid. With the gift of $2,500 or more, a sponsor will be matched up with a student and encouraged to build a connection. Students in need of scholarship are in all grade levels and for that reason we encourage sponsors to consider making a multi-year commitment to a student.
Named Endowed Scholarships
Named scholarships are endowed so that the corpus is invested and the annual distributions are used to fund scholarships for deserving students. Currently, the minimum amount needed to be considered fully–funded is $50,000 within a five year period. Endowed scholarships may be named in the donor family name or in honor or memory of a loved one. Donations can also be made to an already established named scholarship. The following are endowed scholarships. Maureen Brannen ’83 Memorial Scholarship Arthur and Glenna Collins Scholarship Liz Livingston Howard ’82 Scholarship Roberta Jean Irsay ’74 Scholarship Patrick Sean Lynch Scholarship Mulvihill Family Scholarship Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Ritten Scholarship Sullivan Family Scholarship Please contact Kerrigan McNulty ’98 at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-256-7660 for more information on investing in the future of Regina Dominican women.

egina Dominican High School celebrated the 21st annual Black and White Benefit on February 26, 2011 at the Westin North Shore in Wheeling. Co-chair couples Danise and Michael Schukies and Mary and Michael McManus and their volunteers raised more than $117,000 for Regina Dominican High School, including $30,000 in scholarship aid and $7,000 for Teacher’s Wish Lists. For the first time, the Black and White Benefit offered online bidding which opened the evening up to parents, alumnae and friends of Regina who were not able to attend the event. Apple iPads were utilized at the benefit for an easy, more streamlined way of bidding on silent auction items. Honoree, Mr. Daniel W. Fox, was presented with the Regina Caeli Award by President Sister Mary Margaret Pachucki, OP. The Regina Caeli Award is presented annually at the Black and White Benefit to honor persons who have been strong, faithful supporters and promoters of the life and mission of the school. Fox, a current parent, graduate parent, Board member and now Regina Caeli Award winner, proudly donned his newest title as an “Honorary Regina Girl”. After a dinner comprised of gourmet carving, seafood, vegetarian and sushi stations, the live auction commenced. Items included Skybox tickets to a Bulls game, a vacation in Saugatuck, MI and premiere “Princess Parking,” offering one lucky girl a spot right outside of Regina’s main entrance.
