Sacred Heart was more than just a home for me as a boarding student of four
years from 1972-1976; it was my refuge of safety and recovery from family
tragedy. Sacred Heart became a fortress of protection for me as I began to
absorb the Goals and Criteria which would form the foundation of my life’s
philosophy; influencing personal and career choices. For the first time in my
childhood, I could focus on becoming a classically educated young woman. The
Sisters and staff enveloped me, nurturing me with their spirituality, their wisdom,
their kindness, and clear behavioral expectations. They taught me the
importance of solid study habits, the satisfaction found in rigorous intellectual
pursuits, and excellence in performance on tasks. I learned perseverance;
working my way through, not around challenges. Finally, I learned to value the
acceptance of personal responsibility. My years at Sacred Heart healed my
spirit, taught me self-advocacy, and restored my faith in the future. For these
reasons, I have left a bequest to Sacred Heart from my Estate. I want to ensure
that other students emerging from difficult circumstances have the same
opportunities I did. This bequest is a profound Thank You to all those who
helped arm me with intellectual knowledge supported by faith in God. This gift
allows me to be able to continue making a difference in the lives of others, far
into the future, beyond my own life.
