Winter 2022 Issue
Dear Alumni & Friends,
We have entered the second half of our Centennial year, and I hope you will make plans to celebrate with us! From the upcoming Gala in April to Reunion in June, there are still many ways to join in the festivities. On page three, you can read more about all the happenings as well as web-exclusive content developed by our Centennial Education Sub-Committee featuring interviews with some of Rosemont’s former presidents, alumni, and more.
In keeping with Rosemont’s mission to care for the Earth, this issue of Rosemont Magazine is brought to you in a digital format, which also enables us to offer you more interactive content to explore.
While we have started another year affected by the pandemic, it has not dampened our spirits at Rosemont, where we continue to advance Cornelia Connelly’s philosophy to “meet the wants of the age” as we pursue our mission and provide access to a quality education in a distinct and purposeful way.
In this latest issue, you can read more ways that Rosemont continues to innovate and evolve:
- Established a new partnership with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia
- Launched Rosemont Momentum, our new government and corporate partnership program
- Began extensive renovation of Mayfield Hall
- Received accreditation for our counseling programs
While we celebrate our Centennial and the new initiatives of the last year, we also mourn the loss of three beloved members of our community. You can read more about Peg Healy, Dick Donagher, and Dennis Dougherty on page 15.
It has been almost two years since I arrived at Rosemont, and each day I am reminded of why I moved here to serve as President. I see how our community is like none other and how deeply everyone cares for each other. Our students, faculty, and staff continue to meet every challenge head on and, together, we are building a bright future for Rosemont.
During this historic year, I invite you to think about how you can have an impact on future generations of Rosemont students. Mentor a student in your field of expertise. Offer an internship to a student or hire a recent graduate. Make a gift today so our students of tomorrow can thrive into the next 100 years with a Rosemont education.
Peace to you,
Jayson Boyers, EdD
