Nobel Prize Winner To Speak At 91st Street
Monday, October 22: NOBEL PRIZE WINNER TO SPEAK AT 91st STREET
As part of 91st Street’s year-long celebration of intellectual values, Nobel Prize winner and noted economist
Joseph E. Stiglitz will speak at 6:30 on Monday, October 22 in the Theater.
The event is the first in a special speaker series in honor of Goal ll.
In 2011, Time named Stiglitz one of the 100 most influential people in the world. One of the most prominent economists of our time, Stiglitz has taught at Yale, Princeton, Stanford and MIT, and is now a professor at Columbia University. In addition to making major contributions to every aspect of economic theory, he helped to create a new branch of economics known as “Economics of Information.” In 2001, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for his analyses of markets with “asymmetric information,” a novel model that accounted for potential inaccuracies in data. He served on President Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers from 1993-97, both as a member and chairman, and has served as both Chief Economist of the World Bank and Chair of the United Nations commission on international financial reform. He is the author of numerous papers, articles and books.
Everyone in the school community is invited to attend.

91st Street Reunion News
On Saturday, April 21st the 91st Street Alumnae Association hosted their largest reunion to date with over two hundred and forty attendees. 190 of the attendees were 91st Street alumnae from classes ending in -2 or -7, celebrating their 5th to 65th reunion, and 50 guests were alumnae from Sacred Heart in Korea, who were celebrating their first-ever U.S. east coast residents reunion.
91st Street guests enjoyed returning to the classroom for lectures given by Ian Humphreys, Upper School History and Social Sciences Chair and Eleanor Fox, RSCJ, they also enjoyed a Liturgy in the Chapel, an awards ceremony, tours of the school and a delicious seated luncheon in the Ballroom. But most of all the alumnae enjoyed reconnecting with friends and fellow alumnae.
This year, the Outstanding Alumna Award was given to, Betty Hewlett ’72. Betty was awarded a gold Très Bien medallion for her dedication to the Sacred Heart goals & criteria; a commitment to excellence in their life’s work; a loyalty to Christian values; and selflessness in service to others. Betty is an outstanding legal professional; land use expert, administrator and leader, whose exemplary skills and accomplishments have been widely shared and recognized. With her selfless commitment to community service, 11 years creating regional policy and 20 years of dedication as a public servant, it is no wonder that she has received 18 Awards and distinctions in her lifetime and was named in 2006 as one of DC's Most Powerful Women by Washingtonian Magazine. But with each hat she wears, it has been obvious that she executes all the qualities worthy of this Sacred Heart award.

Stuart Alumnae Spotlight:
Leigh Morlock '00: 2012 Recipient of Barbara Boggs Sigmund Award
The Stuart Alumnae Association is proud to announce Leigh Morlock, Stuart Class of 2000, as the 2012 recipient of the Barbara Boggs Sigmund Award.
First awarded in 1992 to honor the memory of Barbara Boggs Sigmund, a former Stuart teacher and public servant, the purpose of this biannual award is to highlight the achievement of a Stuart alumna and to demonstrate the relevance and merit of a Sacred Heart education in the contemporary world.
Criteria for the Barbara Boggs Sigmund Award require that a candidate demonstrate a commitment in her life to the Sacred Heart values of:
- A social awareness which impels to action,
- A critical sense which has led to reflection in our society and its values, and
- A profound commitment to the improvement of the human condition in the world
Leigh began her career as a theater director in New York City before transitioning to creative services in the fashion industry. While at LeSportsac she assisted the chief creative director, implemented the design of a new corporate identity, created trend forecasts that were distributed globally, coordinated product development and liaised with the design, marketing and public relations teams.
Leigh is passionately committed to collaboration and innovation. Her experience in both theater and fashion has led to a deep dedication to fostering design teams. In December of 2009, fueled by her desire to see the world and serve others, Leigh moved to Siem Reap to launch Push Pull Cambodia. Push Pull Cambodia is a fashion social enterprise that uses business as a tool to combat poverty. We employ 46 Khmer weaving artisans who specialize in different phases of Ikat, a traditional textile that is completely handmade. Our patterns blend the traditional technique with modern designs to create globally resonant products.
A native of New Jersey, Leigh has also lived in Maine and London. She graduated cum laude from Drew University where she studied theater arts and political science. Leigh is also a boundary-pusher and possibility evangelist on her blog, tenaciousLEIGH.
Please remember to RSVP for Alumnae Day at Stuart on May 19, 2012! Click here to RSVP online.
We will unveil the new Alumnae Gallery, present the Barbara Boggs Sigmund Award, and bid a fond farewell to four veteran faculty members: Mrs. Ginny Moore, Mrs. Madelaine Shellaby, Ms. Pieta Shukwit, and Mr. Harris Siegel.

AASH Spotlight: Manhattanville's Kiamesha Colom
What being a Manhattanville Alumna means to me...
Kiamesha Colom '02
My time at Manhattanville is special for many reasons. It helped shape the woman that I am today through a variety of experiences on-campus and off. Manhattanville also introduced me to my best friend and husband, Joseph Delamater `04. The opportunities Manhattanville offered for internships, extra-curricular programs, cultural activities and meaningful classroom discussions have been an amazing foundation in which I have been able to build upon. The relationships that I formed with my professors are something that I will always treasure. Additionally, the values that Manhattanville instills and fosters unto its students are the same values that I continue to practice each day of my life. My family and I make sure to give back to our community and use the knowledge we have to help others. I often think of Manhattanville as a place where I was free to discover, learn and grow as an individual. It is a place that I will always hold special in my heart.
Currently, Kiamesha is a mid-level associate at the firm of Benesch, Freidlander, Coplan and Aronoff LLP in the Real Estate division. This past fall, Kiamesha won the 2011 Outstanding Young Lawyer Award from the Indiana State Bar Association. She also presented a CLE for the Indianapolis Bar Association in February 2012 focusing on Commercial Loan Documentation with an Emphasis on Government Guaranteed Lending. In March 2011, Kiamesha and her husband, Joseph Delamater `04, welcomed their first child, Ysabella Grace Delamater. Kiamesha and Joseph continue to live the Manhattanville mission by dedicating their time to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana. For the past 7 years, they have served as a “Big Couple” to their “little sister” and have truly enjoyed watching her grow.

Creative Arts, founded in 1982, is a summer multi-arts program for boys and girls, ages 6-15. Campers have an opportunity to explore visual and performing arts, creative writing, film and video, computers, and athletics in an encouraging environment that cultivates artistic expression.
