Alumnae Spotlight - Maggie Lettire '13
Director of Student Activities, Carondelet










After graduating Carondelet, I went to Saint Mary's College and majored in Business Administration with a Concentration in Entrepreneurship. Upon graduation,  I entered the start-up world and recall telling my friend, and now coworker, Gaeby Todesco '07, that my absolute dream job was to be Director of Student Activities at Carondelet! When I saw the job posting, I left COMPANY/INDUSTRY to pursue my vocational calling.

As Director of Student Activities, I am responsible for overseeing student government and student-run clubs, and creating a positive and engaged environment for students through small- and large-scale events. I help develop programming for students to expand their understanding, push themselves to think creatively and try new things. My work does not stop on the Carondelet campus. I serve as a liaison between De La Salle and Carondelet to cultivate our unique partnership through developing the calendar and executing on a variety of shared initiatives.

No two days are the same, and I relish the special privilege of working alongside students regularly whether they are on leadership, serve on a club, or just have an awesome idea.  The best part of my job is seeing students light up about an idea and follow through until the last possible moment. I love being part of each student leader's journey through life, and being kept on my toes when it comes to innovation. Our students inspire me to be more inventive, and I've started to take up different crafting hobbies to keep up!

It's pretty special to know that roughly 20% of our faculty and staff are alumnae, dedicating their professional service to our alma mater every day. My experience as a student at Carondelet was transformative and  instilled in me the work ethic I carry to this day. As a student, m y favorite part of Carondelet was how the faculty and staff made me feel. I had amazing class council moderators and awesome teachers who build my confidence and sens of purpose and who are now colleagues and friends. I also met my fiance here (a DLS alum I'm marrying this summer), so my Carondelet ties endure.

With over 9,800 alumnae located across the US, regional chapters are an easy way to connect with alumnae in your area. We are looking to start chapters in areas with a high concentration of alumnae and college students.

Lauren Rivera '23
Founder, Adopt-A-Doll

Do you have an American Girl doll hidden away in a closet, collecting dust?

Give her a new home by adopting her out to a child who is receiving long-term treatment at Oakland Children's Hospital!

Carondelet student Lauren Rivera '21 launched non-profit Adopt-a-Doll last year. Her mission is to share a bit of happiness with girls experiencing a difficult time in their lives and would be thrilled to care for an American Girl doll.

Each doll placement is very personal. Lauren will pick up the doll at your home or business or at Carondelet, clean her up and sew her a custom Family House at Oakland Children's Hospital t-shirt. She personally presents the doll to her new "mom" at Oakland Children's Hospital, and then facilitates a thank you note (and photo, if approved) so that you, the original owner, can be assured that your special doll has safely ended up in a loving home. 

If you have a doll that you'd like to donate, or if you'd like to give an American Girl gift card to purchase a new doll for a child at Oakland Children's Hospital, please contact Lauren at  lauren@adopt-a-doll.org to arrange for an adoption and to spread the love! You can learn more at  www.adoptadoll.org.
