Alumnae” honorees Elsa
Menor McGehee (class of ’85), Allison
Izu Song (class of ’94) and Beth Ann
Young (class of ’85) before the formal
award presentations began at the
school’s 2015 Scholarship Fund Gala

The gala had a “Wizard of Oz” theme,
and it concluded with a beautiful rendition
of “Over the Rainbow” by the
Sacred Hearts Select Choir.
