2014 Alumna of the Year -
Mary Beth Kulawiec Dittrich '79

When it came time to solve the problem of who to choose for the 2014 Carondelet Alumna of the Year, the solution was easy to find. We added the values and looked at the plus’ this graduate from 1979 offered and the answer was absolute. She has gone the distance, giving of herself in unparalleled ways and measured up to our formula of what makes an inspirational alumna.

Over the past 35 years she has been a familiar face on campus holding a combination of titles including Religion Teacher, Assistant Campus Minister, Community Service Coordinator, Dean, Academic Advisor, Freshman and Sophomore Advisor and Math Teacher. The odds are in Carondelet’s favor as our candidate also gives infinite hours of tutoring, mentoring and helping our students, faculty and staff with projects that are variable and cover many angles.

But her life at Carondelet is but a mere fraction of the equation. She is the mother of two sons, a devoted wife and a loving daughter. She is wiz at multiplying her many talents and has served alongside her husband as Assistant Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 36 for over 10 years. And some of you may know her as a leader with the Confirmation program at St. John Vianney. And, yes, it shouldn’t surprise you that she uses her math skills in real life. If there’s a 2-for-1 (50% off) bargain at the store, she’ll buy one and donate the other to a needy cause.

You may have added up the facts by now to see our Alumna of the Year is Mary Beth Kulawiec Dittrich, Class of 1979. She’s a shining example of an inspirational alum who gives freely of herself to benefit the lives of others. She graces our circle by living out Gospel values in her everyday life. It’s easy to see how our problem of finding an Alum of the Year was just a matter of adding up the values to see our candidate is way above the curve. Congrats Mary Beth, you are at the top of our scale and we are proud to give you the title, Carondelet’s 2014 Alumna of the Year.
