Participation in A.O.L. theatrical productions as a student proved beneficial later, Gina Roche Ford says, when she became a lawyer: “The drama program provided great public speaking experience and confidence.” Sister Dominic (later Sister Dorothy Mackesey) guided
the drama department then, and she was helpful, Gina says, in obtaining college scholarship aid for the drama students. Retired now, Gina lives in Massachusetts, the other end of the continent from her sister, Barbara Roche Morgan ’63, who lives in Washington State. Their mother,
the late Geraldine Lucas Roche, was in the Class of 1938.
