Iyanna Lusk

Twenty-five Degrees and Loving It!

Written by: Tony Quattrochi, Development Staff Member

The alarm goes off at 4:30 A.M. It’s a school day but she’s not getting up early to complete an assignment at the last minute. She places her workout clothes in a bag and on top places her most expensive footwear. She drives from Westchester to Franklin Park and once she enters the building the temperature will change to a consistent sixty-four degrees. It will be noticeably more chilled when she skates onto the ice, which is kept solid at about twenty-five degrees.

Iyanna Lusk, Westchester resident and junior at St. Joseph High School, doesn’t mind the cold or READ MORE...

2017 Charger Club Investor Appreciation Event

We hosted our Charger Club Investor Appreciation Event on Thursday evening, September 28th on campus utilizing the Chapel and the Global Resource Center (GRC) for a prayer service of thanksgiving and for hospitality.  About 100 of our 
St. Joseph donor community were able to be on hand with their guests. There was such a positive energy expressed by those who could be present. 
The evening began with a reception in the GRC, followed by a Prayer of Thanksgiving, some remarks by Brother Thomas Harding, FSC and then a program of recognition and acknowledgements emceed by Joel Kolner for our 2017 Naming Dedications, Circle of Honor, St. Joseph The Worker, and St. Joseph The Worker Family Awardees. A few of our honorees spoke following their recognition and their brief remarks were moving and from the heart!
Naming Dedication: Ken & Helen Guido Social Studies Department presented to Diane Guido Berner IHM '70 in honor of her parents.  
Below you can view the program, remarks and prayer, event program, slideshow of the honorees and photos from the event. Please find links to these items below for your reference.
