On Sept. 9, we marked 50 years on Winton Drive at an all-school assembly with guests of honor that included Concord Mayor Tim Grayson, many CSJ's and three wonderful alumnae from the first graduating class of 1969! During our commemoration ceremony, Pat Brighton, Kathleen O'Connell and Joan McNamee Baker were interviewed by current seniors, Maddy Duncan and Meredith Happy about what it was like in the first years at Carondelet High School.
It was a phenomenal opportunity for our students to hear about how much has changed and at the same time, that some things about life at Carondelet are universal, like the strong bonds of sisterhood, excellent college-prep education, and our fierce sports teams!
A special thank you to Mayor Grayson and Concord's City Council, for declaring Sept. 9, 2015, Carondelet High School Day! What a way to kick-off our 50th year! Our anniversary was even covered by the Contra Costa Times, twice! Carondelet, De La Salle celebrate 50th anniversaries and Good Neighbors.
