In 1997, I was a 17-year-old sitting in St. Joseph’s Rotunda wondering if CHC was the place for me. I was greeted by Sister Carol, in her red power suit, from the podium. But it felt as if she was speaking directly to me when she said, “Come to the edge. I will push you and you will fly.”

Sister Carol has been encouraging and pushing me—along with countless other women and men—for 30 years. I am forever grateful for her leadership, guidance and, most of all, her friendship.
