Rosary Alumnae Association I crossed a major milestone this past month with my youngest daughter, Kelly, graduating from Rosary. It was such a gift to experience graduation not only as a parent, but as an alumna. Over the last few months I’ve had the opportunity to get to know this senior class – they are an amazing group of girls, and we are fortunate to have them join our ranks as alumnae. I am happy to announce we have organized an Alumnae Association Board of Directors. We are in the final stages of working out the best structural relationship to fit the needs of the school. I encourage you to get involved – reach out to the board and see where you can contribute, or just hang out and meet some new friends. Thank you for your continued support of our Annual Fund and Red Wine & Gold. To say that Rosary could not be all that it is without your support is at best an understatement. Your generosity touches every aspect of life at Rosary, from providing funding that supports our programs, such as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and athletics, to supporting our students directly through tuition assistance. I am immensely proud of our alumnae community! As Rosary embarks upon its 50th Anniversary in 2015, stay tuned for upcoming events. It is an exciting time to celebrate this special place that has given us so much. Go Royals! Yours in Rosary,

Head down Ocean Avenue in Seal Beach and you’ll stumble across a cute snack shack with a giant cupcake marquis. With ocean views and bakery scents, The Social Cupcake is the new chic trend in beach eats. Rosary alumna Natalie Scott Dwyer ’94 and fellow social worker Kian Clineff launched the Social Cupcake with her master chef cousin David Welle in March of 2014. They founded the shop on the premise that great tastes in the perfect portions can allow beach goers and locals to enjoy healthy foods on the go while giving back to the community.

This ocean front eatery offers gourmet eats and scrumptious cupcakes at take-out prices. The best part is that proceeds from your order go to support the following charities: Operation Help a Hero, the Los Alamitos Education Foundation, Second Harvest Food Bank OC, and the Surfrider Foundation. After Natalie graduated from Rosary in 1994, she attended Boston College where she played volleyball for the Eagles and went on to earn a Master’s degree in Social Work. After 13 years of field work, she decided to give back to the community in a new way through this business venture. Natalie married Jason Dwyer, Servite ’94. The couple has three children: Emmet (7), Evelyn (5), and Paige (3). Want to try a sweet treat from The Social Cupcake? Visit Natalie at 907 Ocean Avenue, Seal Beach, CA, 90740. Yelp reviewers recommend the Lemon Blueberry cupcake and the Creme Brulee cupcake, just to name a few. Need an afternoon snack? Try “Not Your Mama’s” chicken salad or the Oven Roasted Vegetable Medley.

Faculty Update: Shawna Pautsch My dear friends, It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter. I have accepted the position of Assistant Principal of Faculty and Instruction at Santa Margarita Catholic High School. This is a wonderful opportunity to challenge myself in a new position. One of my dreams has been to work with new teachers and create a mentor program. I see this as the chance to continue to grow and truly be a lifelong learner. This was not an easy decision. I have spent much time in prayer. This is God’s hand guiding me to the next chapter of my life. How do I thank you for the amazing journey we have shared? Words will never do justice to the love and gratitude that is in my heart. It has been an honor and a privilege to work with all of you. I have learned so much from each of you. Rosary has been and will continue to be a great school for young women. The future is bright for RHS and I am excited to watch it grow and flourish over the next 50 years. I am excited to watch my goddaughters mature as they continue their journey at RHS. As many of you know, I have always been passionate about Rosary and the young women and families I have had the good fortune to serve. My new colors may be blue and gold, but I will forever bleed Red & Gold. In the words of e.e. cummings, “I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart) I am never without it (anywhere I go you go, my dear).” Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I’ll miss you. Know that I am only a phone call or email away. You will all be in my prayers. All my love,

Shawna Pautsch

Andrea Barclay ’94 will leave Rosary after 14 years of service as a

member of Rosary’s faculty. At a recent end-of-year luncheon, Mr. Tom Tice, Jr. spoke about Ms. Barclay. “In 1889, Gustave Eiffel finished his tower that was erected to mark the entryway to the Paris World’s Fair. The original plan called for it to be dismantled after the fair’s conclusion. That didn’t happen, and Eiffel actually had a permit for 20 more years, but the Eiffel Tower proved so popular and so useful that it has remained in Paris all these years. Just before the millennium, the London Eye ferris wheel was erected on the banks of the Thames. It too was supposed to have a limited run, remaining for only a year. As you all know, the London Eye is one of Europe’s most popular attractions and one of the icons of the London skyline. Coincidentally, just before the millennium, Andrea Barclay returned from her college career at Cal Berkeley as a fresh-faced, eager, energetic alumna of Rosary. Everyone who knew her or who met her at the time knew that she was too talented a writer to remain at Rosary for long. She had creative aspirations beyond teaching, and she had talent that was hard to contain to academia or limit to a classroom. Well, amazingly, Andrea has spent 14 years as one of the landmarks of Rosary, changing the landscape, altering the skyline. It’s hard to quantify her impact, but we’re certain that her absence will be as noticeable as if the Eiffel Tower suddenly vanished from Paris, or the London Eye from the banks of the Thames. During May every year, seniors usually ask me, “Are you going to miss us?” . . . and I always say no, you’re ready, you’ve outgrown us, it’s time to challenge yourself somewhere else. Well, I felt the same way about Andrea after just a couple years -- It’ll be sad not to see her as often, but it’s time, and I’m happy that she’ll be pursuing the same dreams that she has inspired her students to pursue -- to be the best version of herself that it’s possible to become. Will London still be London? and will Paris still be Paris? and can Rosary still be Rosary without Andrea Barclay? Well, we can -- but it won’t be the same.” – Tom Tice, Jr. We wish Ms. Barclay the best of luck in her new adventures!

Flashy rings and shiny things Katie Webb ’03 has managed to incorporate her volunteer life as a director of Camp ReCreation into

her busy schedule as owner of the popular event planning firm Intertwined, Inc. She attributes much of her success and her commitment to “give back” to her development at Rosary High School.

p

When did you become interested in event planning? I’ve always had a passion for being a part of events. From being on the Rosary Day committee Junior year, to a Red & Gold captain, my passion started at Rosary and continued to grow while at San Diego State University in my sorority, Pi Beta Phi. After finding out there was a degree in event planning through the Hospitality and Tourism Management Department, I immediately signed up and began studying the behind the scenes of event planning. I was lucky enough to get two amazing internships my junior and senior year in college which solidified my love for planning. After I graduated, I got a job working with American Express planning events for Fortune 500 companies such as Allergan, Intel, and Motorola. It wasn’t until a few of my friends started getting married that I realized my true love for events was in the wedding industry. What inspired you to start your own business? My dad always told me growing up that you have the most control of your future when you worked for yourself. After meeting my current business partner, Meghan, I knew I had found someone with the same passion and motivation that I had to build my dream career and future. After working in corporate America for three years, I knew I wasn’t someone who could follow all the processes and procedures and be forced to think inside the box. Meghan and I started Intertwined Events, our special event planning company, in 2009 and never looked back. Together, we’ve been able to accomplish so much; we consistently push each other to be better and I know our success has been in our teamwork.

How many Rosary weddings and event have you overseen? Is there a special connection? To date, we have planned 17 Rosary girls’ weddings from the classes of 2000 to 2009. There’s a special connection with a past Rosary grad and the instant connection we have once we start reminiscing about our days on Acacia! This past month we had the opportunity to plan a wedding with a Rosary grad, Sarah Toner ’96, as the florist. It’s amazing the connections we make and the opportunity to not only plan someone’s day, but work with other Rosary alumnae as vendors and teammates on event days!

Summer 2014

How did you first become involved with Camp ReC? What is the Rosary connection to Camp Rec? The sophomore Spanish teacher at Rosary, Mary Murphy, was the current director, and wanted to recruit more Rosary girls to participate. I have an uncle with Cerebral Palsy and wanted to know what his life might be like since he was in Canada and I didn’t have a chance to really be with him. I thought it would be a one summer thing, which now, 14 years later, I can’t imagine my life without. How many Rosary students participate in Camp ReC? Every year we recruit students at Rosary. We typically have at least 2-3 new Rosary girls, and up to 10 alumnae at a time on campus. What is your position with Camp ReC? Meghan, my business partner, and I currently volunteer as the Directors of ReCreation Camp. The camp is actually where we met and our first “job” together. After we become the Directors and

Favorite Rosary memory? Red & Gold, of course! My best friend, Colleen Farrell ’03, and I became close during our junior year as fashion captains for the Red team. We were in the same class,

but had different groups of friends and hadn’t ever really formed a friendship. Red & Gold allowed us to actually build a strong friendship, which forever changed my life. I’m so blessed to have had the experience to meet so many amazing friends at Rosary, many of whom I am still friends with today! How has Rosary influenced you? The girls I met during my time there helped to shape me into the person I am today. My best girlfriends are all from here: Brianna Beverage ’03, Ally Basehart ’03, Colleen Farrell ’03, Noelle Hanyak ’03 and so many more. I’m always told by people outside my Rosary friends that I have the most girlfriends and the strongest relationships... it all relates back to Rosary. Of course Mrs. Bangs will always hold a special place in my heart. Kairos was another life altering experience at Rosary and Mrs. Bangs was a huge part of that. I grew up so much that year and will forever be in debt to Mrs. Bangs for helping to facilitate that growth and get me through so many changes in my life that year.

Members of Rosary’s classes of 2010 and 2011 participated in UCLA’s Dance Marathon– a campus-wide event that raises awareness and money for those infected and affected by HIV/ AIDS. The organization’s goal is to find a cure to have an AIDSfree generation and to also eliminate the stigma associated with the disease. As a UCLA community, hundreds of students take a literal stand and fight to end Pediatric HIV/AIDS. This year the group raised $445,019 and in the past 13 years of this event have raised over $3.5 million dollars for the cause and beneficiaries like the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, UCLA AIDS Institute, and Project Kindle.

Mary Nagel ’10 (top) “Dance Marathon has been one of my

favorite events to participate in at UCLA! Getting to wear crazy costumes, dance at 4:30 in the morning, and compete in fun competitions is really so unique. As a three year dancer I have learned so much about Pediatric AIDS and feel lucky to help such a worthy cause. Dancing for over a day is pretty insane, but taking a literal stand with thousands of your schoolmates really makes you feel like you’re making a difference.”

Alex Collell ’11

She serves on the Dance Marathon University Relations committee – encouraging involvement from alumni and clubs on campus through outreach and hosting an alumni banquet. “It has further connected me to the UCLA community through a cause I am passionate about.

Sarah Pontius ’11 (bottom) is a junior at UCLA and is in her second

Support Rosary through the Annual Fund

What is the Annual Fund? Why should I participate? For the last 49 years Rosary High School has provided faith-based education for more than 5,000 young women.The unique Rosary education empowers students to become holistic individuals who think critically, communicate effectively, and embody their religious faith as they serve the greater community. As the result of the generosity of so many, Rosary has been able to grow and develop a quality faculty, foster education beyond the classroom, and mold independent, self-motivated thinkers. The Annual Fund is the bridge between the actual cost of a Rosary education and income received through tuition and fees. Monies raised through the Annual Fund ensure Rosary’s success as an institution of greater learning and its commitment to help each student maximize her potential.

Remembering

Sr. Anne Lynch, CSJ

Our beloved teacher and friend Sr. Anne Lynch, CSJ entered eternal life on February 11, 2014. Sr. Anne taught at Rosary from 1983-1990. To say Sr. Anne was unforgettable is an understatement. Her one woman production of Macbeth is legendary! She had a special affinity for dinosaurs. Dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes filled her Rosary classroom. Whenever she was asked how she was doing, she would respond with, “I’m flourishing.” Some of her former Rosary students recall: “My favorite example of the power and style of Sr. Anne’s teaching was her one-woman performance of Macbeth for the class.” “She really was an outstanding teacher. Do you remember when she brought in as a guest speaker the woman who had been in the Dutch Resistance? That was one of the most profound experiences of my life.” “Her great smile, her mannerisms, her way with words, her unique style that we all loved. Thank you to a great teacher, both in and out of the classroom.” “ ‘Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow, creeps in this petty pace from day to day, to the last syllable of recorded time...’ All these years later, and I can still recite that soliloquy. RIP Sr. Anne.” “The righteous are planted in the house of the Lord; they flourish in the courts of our God” – Psalms 92:13
