Class of ’53 Celebrates 60 Years!
The class of ’53 held its 60th reunion in October 2013. Yes, every October over the last 60 years, this very special class has come together to celebrate. For its 60th, the class held a dinner at Oakcrest. Fourteen of the remaining 32 members of the class were in attendance. Gifts for the attendees included an embroidered hand towel with the CHH Pin logo. Extras were sent to me for the archives thanks to Mary Lou Hiortdahl, ’53.
Freda Creutzburg Scholar Named!
The 2014 recipient of the Freda Creutzburg Scholarship in memory of Church Home & Hospital School of Nursing is Kerry Calloway. Kerry is a member of the Accelerated Class of 2014. Prior to entering Hopkins, Kerry worked as an elementary school music teacher but has always had a desire to become a nurse. Kerry is most grateful to serve as the 2014 Freda Creutzburg Scholar.
Donations to the Archives
The Class of ’67 held a 45th reunion and to mark the occasion, beautiful lead crystal paperweights with the CHH logo were made. Nine classmates and two former instructors attended. Thank you to Susan Love, ’67 for the donation of one of these for the archives.
Thank you to Mildred Lazaga Shinnick, ’53 for the donation of her CHH pin and her sister’s pin for the archive collection. This was a very special donation.

Picture Yourself at Alumni Weekend!
Save the Date! It’s never too early to put the 2014 Reunion Weekend on your calendar! Please try to attend the festivities on September 25-27 as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of our joining Hopkins as consortium members of the Alumni Association. A beautiful plaque will be unveiled to be hung in the School of Nursing as a permanent reminder of the joint commitment to nursing education and excellence. The fund drive to add to the existing scholarship during the Reunion Weekend continues to grow. Please make a donation so that our impact is a big one in September.
