In celebration of the 80th anniversary of the
first class to graduate from San Francisco College for Women/Lone Mountain, the
2013-15 board of the Alumnae of the Sacred Heart Lone Mountain is launching a
campaign to grow the Lone Mountain Legacy Scholarship Fund at USF’s School of Education
to $2 million.
With the current endowment at $140,000 and bequest
intentions totaling an additional $500,000, the board hopes to achieve its goal
through a combination of outright gifts, including irrevocable life income
gifts as well as gifts of non-cash assets, and revocable gifts, including
bequest intentions, IRA and life insurance beneficiaries by December 31, 2015.
Mary “Be” Mardel RSCJ, beloved educator, administrator
and leader now living at Oakwood with other retired RSCJ, will serve as Honorary
Chair of the campaign. Christine Hughes ’68 is leading the campaign committee,
which also includes Shirley Connolly ’58 and Lisa Engstrom Seran ’73. (Include
photo of Sr. Mardel, we have many on file).
Presenting Our Legacy Scholarship Recipients
The current and former recipients of the Lone Mountain
Legacy Scholarship embody the qualities which reflect the educational
excellence of the RSCJ.

Leadership at USF’s School of Education. He is a recent recipient of the

which honors Catholic educators deserving of national recognition. Richard is
committed to lifelong learning and his desire to strengthen his ability to
nurture students and other staff in their vocation as Christian leaders is a
tribute to the inspiring legacy of the RSCJ. (Include photo of Richard now on

"The value of Catholic education for our larger society cannot be underestimated, especially in this time of extraordinary need for visionary leaders whose lives are connected, mind, body, heart, and soul. This is why I have committed my life to this work."
