Full lives, well lived. That’s what a Cabrini education strives to prepare students for as they make their way in the world.
The lives of these graduates are powerful examples of success in achieving that goal:
Mary Kathryn Stanbach Burke ’69, CEO of a retirement community in Newtown Square, Pa., is a staunch advocate for quality healthcare for the elderly and others who need it most.
Stephen Westhead ’87 grew a one-person Kansas City insurance company into a 130-employee firm with $115 million in sales. Matching his professional success is his commitment to charitable causes, which include the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Sunflowers to Roses (cancer survivorship and research), and support for developmentally disabled women. He also serves on the Cabrini board.
Linda Panetta ’88, photographer and founder of Optical Realities, uses photography to raise awareness of world events, drawing particular attention to the struggle of people living in impoverished and war-torn parts of the globe.
Kharisma McIlwaine ’06, a member of the CW Crew on CW57 in Philadelphia, is a talented actress and singer who is active with the city’s Police Athletic League.
Amanda Finnegan ’08 used journalism skills she honed writing for the campus newspaper, The Loquitur, to chronicle the story of Iraqi refugee families for the Las Vegas Sun, where she is new media producer.
Chris Sweeney ’08 put his accounting major to use to develop financial systems for an orphanage in Swaziland.
Other graduates are preserving the environment, joining the fight against AIDS, helping at-risk children, promoting human rights, advocating for social justice, and are involved in many other worthwhile causes.
Cabrini challenges students to do something extraordinary with their lives. The many ways they meet that challenge result in a world of good. "
