Lauren’s experience in high school also influenced her love of traveling. One of her most profound memories at the Academy was the cultural trip with the Latin Club to Rome, Italy, where she spent time in St. Peter’s Square for Pope John Paul II’s last papal blessing and public appearance. This opportunity encouraged her to pursue a study abroad program during her time at Loyola University Chicago, where she decided to take her studies to Beijing, China for a semester to study business. She serves on the finance committee of Cogswell Hall, a nonprofit organization that provides a permanent solution to homelessness that offers quality, low-income housing with social services and advocates for disabled and economically disadvantaged individuals.JAACHIEVEMENTS • Recipient, Emmy Award, National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences-Suncoast Chapter • Published Author, The Woman with the Oil • Recipient, Mark of Excellence Award in News Photography, Society of Professional Journalists • Member, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Delta Zeta Chapter Jazmin’s experience at Saint Joseph Academy inspired her path of public speaking, fostered by encouragement from her teachers and peers. As a broadcast journalist on WESH-TV, her determination to get the heart of each story she tells ensures that she has the latest and most accurate information for her stories. Stemming from her personal experience, Jazmin is also passionate about bringing awareness to domestic violence. Her hope is to normalize the conversation surrounding this topic by traveling around Central Florida to schools, churches, youth groups and various women’s empowerment events, sharing her experience. She shares a message that domestic abuse does not discriminate and can happen to anyone. Jazmin encourages others to believe that there is life after heartbreak and divorce. Her first book, The Woman with the Oil, debuted at #1 in the Divorce category on Amazon in 2018.What Would You Tell an Eighth Grade Girl About Saint Joseph Academy? “On one of my retreats the motto was ‘the bond between Catholic school girls never dies,’ which is even more true than I realized at the time. The friendships I made in my four years at Saint Joseph Academy are ones that I cherish to this day and still call those girls my best friends. The Academy instilled me with faith, confidence and helped shape me into the woman I am today.” - Lauren Adler ’073MAUREEN (MO) BOLE ’10NORA CONWAY ’09 Social Worker, Providence HouseGraphic Designer and Reporter, Chagrin Valley Times and West LifeBachelor of Social Work, Cleveland State UniversityBachelor of Science in Visual Communications with a Specialization in Journalism, Ohio UniversityMaster of Social Work, Cleveland State University Daughter of Dorothy Stack Conway ’79Daughter of Mary Beirne Bole ’69Resident of Cleveland, OHGranddaughter of Marie Conway Beirne ’32 Resident of Avon, OHACHIEVEMENTS • Recipient, Best Newspaper Design, Ohio News Media Association Awards • Recipient, Best Local Feature, Ohio News Media Association Awards • Recipient, Best Page Design, Ohio News Media Association Awards • Recipient, Overall News Coverage, Ohio News Media Association Awards • Recipient, Best Original Column, Ohio News Media Association Awards • Recipient, Community Awareness Series, Ohio News Media Association Awards Through the nurturing and supportive environment Saint Joseph Academy provided, Maureen’s interest in the visual and graphic arts ignited a spark and encouraged her to pursue her passions.

She lives her life believing that it takes a village to raise a child. She not only links families to proper resources, but she also uses her voice to advocate for social change. Nora started her social work career at Providence House as an intern and accepted a position immediately following graduation. She truly embodies the mission of Providence House, a nonprofit organization that protects at-risk children, supports families through crisis and strengthens communities to end child abuse and neglect.

Nora reflects someone who is strengths-based, motivated and has incredible empathy for the families of Providence House. She is also a strong advocate and voice of reason, no matter what the challenge or situation may be.What Would You Tell Your Twelfth Grade Self? “You’re good enough: Despite the fact that you’re constantly comparing yourself to others, you can do this. Yes, it’s worth trying. Failure doesn’t mean you should think about quitting or giving up, it’s just a temporary setback. It doesn’t matter what everyone else’s work looks like, it matters what YOUR work looks like. Give it your all, do your best and good things will come to you.” - Maureen (Mo) Bole ’10MEGHAN CRUTE ’02EMILY CUNNINGHAM ’04Dermatologist, Trillium Creek Dermatology & Surgery CenterOwner and Photographer, Emily Millay Photography Bachelor of Arts in Photography and Printmaking, Columbus College of Art & DesignBachelor of Science, Xavier University Doctor of Medicine, University of Cincinnati College of MedicineSister of Anna Cunningham ’10 Resident of Rocky River, OHResident of Lakewood, OHACHIEVEMENTS • Chief Resident, Dermatology Residency, University of Cincinnati Medical Center • Presenter, Gross and Microscopic Presentation, American Academy of Dermatology • Presenter, Case of the Year, 39th Annual Meeting for Society of Pediatric Dermatology • Graduated summa cum laude, Xavier University • Member, Alpha Epsilon Delta, National Health Pre-Professional Honor Society • Member, Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society Dr. Meghan Crute exemplifies enthusiasm for education, compassionate care for patients and others, as well as excitement for leadership opportunities.

Your fellow Jaguars become your sisters and the entire Academy community becomes your extended family.

She is currently employed by NASA at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, designing navigational software for the Orion Program, the new spacecraft that will take astronauts to the moon and Mars. It is mind-boggling to even consider the intellectual curiosity required to approach such complex goals, yet Emily embraces this challenge. She sifts through 1960s Apollo-era research notes and rewrites them as code to predict a spacecraft’s trajectory, acting as an astronaut stranded off the coast of Florida during a rescue operation rehearsal. Emily’s most current project will launch in July 2019, where she will sit in the control center at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, deciding whether or not the spacecraft’s navigation system is a “go for launch.” Already in her young career, Emily has gained and shared a tremendous amount of wisdom which began with the passion and curiosity fostered at the Academy.Sister of Mary ’10, Annie ’13 and Katie Kostell ’13 Resident of New York, NYACHIEVEMENTS • Cast Member, Mainstage Repertory Cast, Disney Cruise Line • Cast Member, Lucy Van Pelt, A Charlie Brown Christmas, National Tour • Cast Member,Velma/“Somewhere” Soloist, West Side Story • Cast Member, Johanna, Sweeney Todd • Cast Member, Hotbox Girl, Guys and Dolls • Cast Member, Ensemble, White Christmas • Cast Member, Mrs. Banks, Mary Poppins • Cast Member, Gladys/Ensemble, 42nd StreetSaint Joseph Academy has been a part of Rebecca’s life since birth because of her late father, beloved math teacher, coach and Athletic Director Don Kostell.
