Corporate DNA

The Corporate Personality of SSND

Exploring the corporate personality of SSND reminds the author of an encounter recently at the funeral of S. Carol Reeb, SSND. Sitting next to a gentleman who was obviously moved by her funeral liturgy, I asked about his acquaintance with Carol. “We were on the Board of Marian Middle School together and she was a fine educator with the interest of the girls at heart. I didn’t know her well but something of her spirit touched me deeply.” S. Carol was a beloved community member, enthusiastic educator, and a spokesperson for Mother Earth.

Often a meeting with one School Sister of Notre Dame has led others to identify a certain set of values that are found in the SSND-DNA: an identity or corporate personality does emerge. This segment will focus on a few stories that exemplify some of the traits of character found in this corporate DNA.
