Annual Message to the College Community 

by Sister Karen Kennelly 

-■—founders Day last fall was planned to celebrate 
#-^ the successful completion of the Sister Magdalen 
JL Coughlin Endowed Scholarship campaign, as 
well as to honor alumnae for their extraordinary 
achievements. Thanks to the College's many friends, 
our scholarship endowment now totals more than 
$12 million. 

At the Founders Day luncheon, alumnae board 
Chair Alicia Andujo recognized some of the students 
now receiving scholarship aid; as they stood to be 
recognized — surrounded by Mount grads from 1929 
to 1992 — they provided a stirring reminder that past 
and present at MSMC are united by a shared vision of 
the future. 

Mount St. Mary's has been working especially hard 
over the last decade to come to grips with what it 
means to educate and cultivate leadership in a diverse 
student body. Our philosophy of helping each student 
reach her potential led to establishment of the 
Alternative Access program at the Doheny campus in 
the early '80s. Our conviction that our programs and 
faculty needed to be more sensitive to diversity if we 
were to educate the contemporary student for the 
contemporary world led to major faculty development 
and curriculum changes beginning in 1986. Many of 
you have seen the monograph series we began 
publishing last year to share some of our discoveries 
about multicultural education. The title of the series, 
"Celebrating Cultural Diversity," sets the tone. 
Diversity has proved to be a remarkable catalyst for 
learning here at Mount St. Mary's; we recognize it as 
something to be celebrated. 

These publications, along with the accomplishments 
of alumnae and many other qualities that bring the 
College to people's attention from day to day, have 
moved the College's light from under the proverbial 
bushel basket to a lamp stand. We continue to appear 
in the U.S. News and World Report ranking of the top 
ten regional liberal arts colleges, and are moving 

up: from sixth last year to second place in the 1993 
rankings. The fall enrollment surged by a whopping 20 
percent to an all-time high of 1491. New programs, 
designed to meet the needs of today's students, are fully 
enrolled and showing promise of rapid growth. The 
Associate Degree in Nursing Program, with more than 
50 enrolled, brings on a second class of that number this 
spring. Weekend College opened in September with over 
90 students, and will very possibly double that number 
in the second semester. We know from our new student 
comments that the Mount St. Mary's reputation for 
offering a quality education was a key factor in 
attracting new students to both programs. 

Our students provide solid evidence of the fine 
reputation of Mount St. Mary's College, and our 
alumnae provide the proof. The women profiled in this 
issue vividly express the College's highest ideals in their 
lives. We celebrate them and rejoice in the unique gifts 
each brings to her life and work. The College is proud 
of you, and you can be proud of your College!

Frances Miyake Cbikabisa 'SO 

M.S.W., L.C.S.W. 

When Frances Miyake Chikahisa entered UCLA in 1946, 
she had only recently been released from a Japanese- 
American internment camp. She found herself in an impersonal 
environment, crowded with GIs who were returning to college. 

"I wanted an education based in philosophy and religion, 
and soon realized I needed to make a change. At that time, I 
decided to convert to Catholicism and Mount St. Mary's 
College offered me a scholarship, which allowed me to transfer. 
This was the turning point in my life." 

Chikahisa knew early on that her work would be dedicated 
to helping families. "Dr. Mary Stanton, an instructor in 
MSMC's social welfare department, encouraged me to 
continue toward a master's degree. She was my guiding light." 

After earning her Master's in Social Work degree at USC in 
1956, Chikahisa worked for several years for Catholic Social 
Services and other Catholic agencies before starting her family. 

Today, she is a psychotherapist in Rolling Hills Estates, 
Calif., where her practice focuses on solidifying family 
relationships. She has been honored for her work as a volunteer 
facilitator for parents of abused children. 

Mount St. Mary's College gave me a well-rounded, 
personal education and helped me develop a 
commitment to serving the community." 

Winter 1993 


Barbara Ledesma Brown '64 

Executive Assistant to Orange County 
Supervisor Roger R. Stanton 

In April 1980, she was the first woman elected to the 
Fountain Valley City Council; in June 1987, she became the 
first woman mayor of that city; and in April 1992, the Orange 
County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce elected its first 
woman president: Barbara Brown. 

"The background in philosophy and ethics I received at 
MSMC has really helped me. Whether making policy decisions 
or personal decisions, you need a foundation of core beliefs. 
That's your rock, and from there you can do anything." 

After earning a B.S. degree in microbiology, Brown became 
involved in community issues and active in local government, 
serving on the city planning commission before making her 
first run for city council. In 1984, she received a master's 
degree in public administration from California State 
University, Long Beach. 

"In this community, 95% of our high school students are 
Hispanic and 50% are dropouts. That's our biggest challenge, 
to do something about that unconscionable statistic. 

"I try to tell young people today to recognize the value of the 
family and a supportive environment you can always go back 
to for strength. The Mount became a second family to me." 

I came from a cultural perspective which did not view 

women as having roles of leadership and 

independence. I needed the support of seeing other 

women around me who were meeting challenges, 

women with great goals."

Mary Arneson Odell '68 
President, Riordan Foundation 

As president of the Riordan Foundation, Mary Odell works 
to support projects that enhance literacy skills in children 
and job skills in older students. Much of the Foundation's 
work is channeled through its computer-assisted reading 
labs — hundreds across the country which serve more than 
100,000 children every year. A computer program called 
"Writing to Read" helps children build their verbal skills by 
teaching them how to write what they say, and then read what 
they write. 

Odell taught for several years after earning her degree in 
English from MSMC, and did post-graduate work in language 
and speech acquisition. Her son Patrick, now 20 and a 
sophomore history major at Loyola Marymount University, 
was born with a hearing impairment. Odell and her husband 
researched teaching methods and theories so that they could 
help him learn to speak. "He's been speaking normally ever 
since kindergarten," Odell says. Her daughter, Kelly, 22, is 
planning a career as an elementary school teacher. 

"Young children want to learn so much — the challenge is to 
keep that love of learning alive. I knew I was in the right place 
when I came to Mount St. Mary's, because the College has 
always had an excellent reputation for preparing teachers." 

My compelling interest is the education of young 
children, building on their strengths to get them started 
early on the path to success."

Barbara Williams Johnson '55 

Public Health District Nursing Director Northeast Health Center 
Los Angeles County Department of Health Services 

Barbara Williams Johnson is the nursing administrator for 
40 nursing staff who deliver services for more than 82,000 
patient visits per year in the public health setting. Throughout 
her 37-year career she has also worked as a nurse at a junior 
college, as an occupational nurse with Mattel toys, and as an 
instructor with the Los Angeles Unified School District. 

"I devote much of my time to the Council of Black Nurses, 
an organization I founded in 1968 with Dr. Betty Williams and 
10 other nursing leaders," Johnson says. The current association 
of more than 7000 members addresses the need to recruit and 
retain minority nurses; promote their professional 
advancement; position them in policy-making and leadership 
jobs in key agencies; and improve health care in the Black 

Concern with the needs in her community has led Johnson to 
serve as president of the View Park Library (twice!); secretary 
of the Black Health Leadership Council; and for the last 12 
years, planner and participant in the annual statewide Black 
Health Conference. 

"The liberal arts education at MSMC helped me view things 
holistically in all areas of my life. That has made me more 
effective as a wife, mother, working professional, and volunteer." 

Mount St. Mary's gave me the preparation and 
confidence to seek a higher degree and leadership 
positions in nursing."

Sister Mary McKay, CSJ '68 

Assistant Professor of Religious Studies 
Mount St. Mary's College 

Sister Mary McKay describes herself as a child of the 
Kennedy era. The infectious idealism of the '60s influenced 
her to lead a life dedicated to service, both in the Church and 
in the classroom. She obtained her bachelor's degree in English 
at the Mount, a master's in 1977 from Duquesne University, 
and subsequently spent several years as an elementary school 
teacher. Since earning her Ph.D. in theology from the 
University of Notre Dame last spring, she has returned to 
MSMC as an assistant professor of religious studies. 

McKay graduated from Alemany High School in Mission 
Hills and entered religious life in 1963. As a student, she had 
known many CSJs and admired their strong tradition of 
teaching; that's one reason she chose to become a Sister of St. 
Joseph of Carondelet. 

Nearly three decades after she was enrolled as an 
undergraduate, McKay now finds herself in the midst of a new 
generation of MSMC students. "The biggest contrast between 
then and now is the diversity — the differences in age, 
ethnicity — just the number of countries these women come 
from is amazing!" 

McKay enjoys the challenge of diversity in the classroom. "I 
spend more time and effort preparing for class to make sure 
that my lectures offer a variety of examples applicable to 
diverse cultures. I also encourage discussion so that my 
students can express themselves as individuals." 


t was central to that time, the desire to do something 
for others."

Leslie Cunningham '90 

Professional Sales Representative 
Rhone-Poulenc Pharmaceuticals 

Adapting to cultural differences is nothing new for Leslie 
Cunningham, who spent most of her teenage years 
abroad, in West Germany, before entering Mount St. Mary's 
and earning her B.A. in social science. She is fluent in German 
and Spanish, and can hold her own in Japanese as well. 

In her present position, she shares information about new 
products with physicians in a variety of health care settings. 
Cunningham says that having been educated at a women's 
college has proven to be a tremendous asset. "You learn to 
assert yourself; you know you can compete, toe-to-toe with 
men. That's something you take with you throughout life." 

Cunningham completed a prestigious Coro Foundation 
fellowship in public affairs last June. The Coro fellows study a 
particular neighborhood — in Cunningham's case, it was the 
Vietnamese district in Westminster, Calif. — analyzing the 
political, social, economic and spiritual elements that make up 
that community. Coro fellows subsequently work for a month 
at a time with leaders in politics, media, labor, business, and 
community affairs. Cunningham's father, former City 
Councilman David Cunningham, is also an alum of the Coro 
program. "We were the first parent-child duo!" 

She hopes to be posted in another country in the not-too- 
distant future, where she can put her language skills to work in 
international marketing. 

Arty clients are in Chinatown, Little Tokyo, Koreatown, 
Highland Park... it's great to be exposed to the rich 
diversity of these communities on a daily basis."

Dr. Marta Sanchez '66 

Associate Professor, Department of Literature 
University of California, San Diego 

For Marta Sanchez, beginning her college career as part of 
the inaugural class at the Doheny campus was a natural 
choice. Living with her family in East Los Angeles, MSMC 
became an extension of home. Making the transition to Chalon 
meant a long commute. 

"I was a glutton for punishment," Sanchez says. "I would get 
up at 5:00 a.m. for an 8:00 a.m. class, and I'd study on the bus." 

An English major who flourished under the guidance of 
Mount legends like Sister Laurentia Digges, Sanchez earned a 
master's degree in 1968 from John Carroll University and a 
doctorate in comparative literature from UCSD in 1977. She 
has published dozens of essays on the interplay of culture, 
gender, and family in writings by Latin American and 
Mexican-American authors, and is the author of 
Contemporary Cbicana Poetry: A Critical Approach to an 
Emerging Literature (University of California Press, 1985). 

"I looked at a very diverse group of women writers with 
commonalities of culture and history. It became clear to me 
how problematic it is to try and label ourselves with a term 
that everyone in the group can accept. A name means something 
different to everybody." 

I have very positive feelings about women's colleges. 
I really responded to the special care and attention 
I received at MSMC."

Monica Spillane Luechtefeld '71 

Corporate Vice President 
Eastman, Inc. 

She graduated as a biology major in 1971, and in the late 
'70s became involved in business. As a corporate vice- 
president, Monica Spillane Luechtefeld works in the sales 
division for Eastman, an office furniture manufacturing 

"Mount St. Mary's knows how to build on students' skills, 
developing in them a deep sense of self-worth. You feel that 
any goal or dream is attainable." 

Luechtefeld is an active alumna and enjoys maintaining 
contact with the College's "sense of tradition." She feels that 
giving back to MSMC is part of that tradition. From 1975 to 
1980 Luechtefeld served on the Alumnae Board, and is now a 
valued member of both the Mount Associates and the Regents 

"Mount St. Mary's College provides a nurturing yet 
challenging environment that develops women leaders." 

My college education broadened my personal 
horizons; I learned that what I could imagine myself to 
be, I could become."

Planned Giving Is Growing 





Last fall those of 
you who we 
knew had 
remembered us in 
some form of 
planned giving 
numbered fewer 
than thirty; through 
recent contacts and 
mailings we now 
know that there are many more of you who have made such a 
commitment to the Mount. Your love and generosity help the 
College preserve the educational environment for which it is 
noted. Our latest accreditation by the Western Association of 
Schools and Colleges compliments us on the fact that: "Mount 
St. Mary's College has an enviable reputation in honoring and 
emphasizing respect for each individual. Indeed, it may be said 
with confidence that every resource of this institution is 
dedicated more to the service of the individual student than to 
the institution's self-preservation." 

Hopefully, still others of you will let us know if the Mount 
has been named a beneficiary of your financial planning. We, in 
turn, want to recognize you through our HERITAGE 
SOCIETY. Our charter members, as well as all our Golden 
Grads, are invited to a special program on Sunday, March 14, 

Several alum attorneys have volunteered their services to 
assist the College in legal aspects of planned giving. Currently, 
Mary Creutz '53, Jane Luecke Johnson '64, and Angela 
Hawekotte Quinn '75 have offered to be advisors to MSMC. 
Their first meeting was held at Mary's home in October. Mary, 
Angela and Jane — all graduates of Loyola Law School — will 
also assist your advisors if you would like them to do so. 

/n addition to the attorneys, a committee of persons 
knowledgeable in wills, trusts, insurance, real estate, and 
other assets will help to insure a solidly established program. 
Michael Enright, a partner of Arthur Andersen & Company, an 
MSMC trustee, and the husband of Carol Clem '64, will serve 
as chairman of this committee. Their first meeting was held in 
January at the Doheny campus. 

We are grateful to each of you for your dedication to the 
Mount. You are making it possible for the "heritage" of our 
mission and values to continue as a vital force in our society.

a number of large planned gifts; Barbara Becker, who wrote the proposal for the
