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.
