Nancy Merwick Brannan ’54 wrote to say that although the U.S. remains home for her and her sister Pat Merwick McEniff ’48, their sister Donna Merwick Dening ’49 has lived in Australia for many years. A longtime university professor and author, Donna has written extensively on American history.
Sister Miriam Patrick (Patricia) Cummings ’49 is now president of the board of directors of Corazon a Corazon, an SSND-sponsored program that provides English language and computer literacy instruction for Hispanic immigrants and tutoring for their children in a St. Michael’s parish building in the South Shore neighborhood. The new board president hopes those who benefited from SSND’s caring discipline in the past will lend willing hands to this current need: “We always need volunteers, mentors and, of course, financial help. This is not a tuition- or fee-based project. We rely on the support of donors and grants.” For more information, call 773-221-0620 or check out the website at www.corazon-chicago.com.
