Letter from Sister
February 2009

Almost 150 years ago, four Dominican sisters traveled from
Ohio to Nashville to found a school for girls, a school that
would educate and form strong young women of faith to
impact the culture and society around them. Soon after
its founding in 1860, it endured the ravages of the Civil
War, some of which was fought near the school’s backyard.
Since then it has continued to educate thousands of young
women, enduring and growing through times of depression,
war, and civil unrest. It will endure beyond all of us who
write and read this. And we, for a brief time, get to share
in its history and be part of its traditions. This is what we
celebrate in the 150th sesquicentennial celebration of St.
Cecilia Academy.

In the Old Testament, anniversary celebrations were called
Jubilees. They were marked by a sense of homecoming to
familiar traditions and ancestral places. In this same spirit,
we use this issue of HarpStrings to announce the major
events of our 150th celebration and to invite you to attend.
Return to St. Cecilia Academy and share in the celebration
of the Cecilian tradition.

An internal committee has been meeting for over a year to
lay the groundwork for the celebration. A larger committee
made up of alumnae, parents, students, and staff is presently
  eshing out the details of the full celebration. Enclosed in
this publication is a timeline of the major events, running
from May 2010 to June 2011.

I invite you to look over the “Save the Date” information and
begin planning now for times and ways you can celebrate
your heritage as a St. Cecilia alumnae or friend and come
join in as a St. Cecilia family member for life. It promises to
be a great celebration. I hope to see you there.

In anticipation of our sesquicentennial year,

Sr. Mary Thomas, O.P.

                                      who came to the shows and the tea,” said Kendra Schulz,

                                      characters from the play.”

                                      “This show is timeless and has an appeal to a large audience,
                                      especially young girls,” said St. Cecilia Academy Fine Arts
                                      Chair and Drama Teacher Cathie Correia Stamps, who
                                      directed the show. “The storyline is similar to the Disney
                                      version but the songs are completely different.”

                                      For senior Andrea Wheatley it was her last musical at SCA.
                                      “It’s all really fun because you’re with your friends,” said

                                      reactions of everyone in the audience.”

                                      “The cast and crew of Cinderella, as well as myself, were
                                      inspired by Julia’s return to our show after her father’s

                                      Hall was watching with pride and joy in spirit.

     St. Cecilia Academy and Overbrook School will break ground for a new track and soccer field on Feb. 23, 2009. The athletic
     field project will feature a new regulation size soccer field with amended soil for a more forgiving playing surface as well as
     improved water irrigation. Relocation of the present field will allow for the addition of an eight-lane asphalt track around
     the field. A rubberized topping on the track will provide comfort for the athletes as well as durability for the track surface.
     The field will include dual high jump and long jump areas as well as areas for shot put and discus.

     An extensive landscape buffer will be included along the neighboring Cherokee Avenue residential area. As with the field,
     the landscaped areas will be irrigated. A sidewalk system will connect the Overbrook School to a concrete surface at the west
     side of the track for bleachers. Provisions will be made for a 3,700 square foot field house in Phase Two. The entire project
     is being built in coordination with the overall campus master plan and will be the first part of that plan to be implemented.

     The project will take between five and seven months to complete. The field will be sprigged and cultivated throughout the
     summer to prepare for use during the Fall 2009 playing season. Work is scheduled to begin Feb. 24, 2008. We hope you
     can join us for the official groundbreaking ceremony at 2 p.m. on Feb. 23, 2008 on the current soccer field.

Dear fellow alumnae,

As we move toward our 150th anniversary
celebration I am filled with gratitude and
anticipation. I am very grateful for your
participation in our alumnae events and look
forward to seeing more of you in the future.

It has been a busy year. We paid homage to
tradition with our annual Easter Egg Hunt,
Alumnae Luncheon, and Alumnae Memorial
Mass. Two new events were created this year.
Ladies of all ages enjoyed an afternoon of
activities and refreshments with Cinderella just
before the matinee performance of the Academy’s
play. On the evening of Nov. 20 we held our
first annual vespers service in commemoration
