We welcomed alumnae back to the Hill on Saturday to celebrate our Alumnae Cocktail Party! With more than 130 people in attendance, we especially recognized classes ending in 8 and 3. Thank you to everyone who joined us for the event!
Today’s Alumnae Lunch and Learn featured Sarah Ann Yang '07, who works as a lifestyle editor at Real Simple in New York City. She spoke on ways she strategizes to reach and engage audiences in an ever expanding social media world, and how the world of journalism has changed in the last ten years. This new program connects our students with alumnae who work in the fields they’re interested in, giving them opportunities to learn ways to break into different industries and have mentors along the way.
20 alumnae from the 1980s to the 2010s attended our first ever Ceramics and Wine Night on Thursday. Taught by Heather Kent, our ceramics and sculpture teacher, each alumna crafted their own keepsake holiday ornament. This was a chance for alumnae to return to the Hill and see the new Jeanne Ward Foundation Ceramics Studio, which opened in 2016 as part of our Arts Center remodel. Thank you to everyone who joined us for this fun night!

Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy presented their annual Woman of the Year award this month to alumna Claudine Cazian Britz ‘96. Claudine is the head of entertainment partnerships at Instagram, in which she works closely with public figures, television, film and media companies. Alumnae young and old gathered at the California Club to support Claudine at the award ceremony and luncheon. In her acceptance speech, Claudine spoke of how impactful her education at FSHA was in terms of inspiring curiosity in herself and her fellow Tologs. She quoted Michelle Obama who said, “We should always have three friends in our lives-one who walks ahead who we look up to and follow; one who walks beside us, who is with us every step of our journey; and then, one who we reach back for and bring along after we've cleared the way.” Claudine truly embodies this sentiment and is an admirable role model for current students at FSHA.
Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy is an all girls' Catholic, Dominican, independent, college-preparatory day and boarding high school in the hills of La Cañada Flintridge. Overlooking Pasadena, FSHA educates girls from Los Angeles, Southern California and around the world for a life of faith, integrity and truth.
