Catherine Emmons Phelps '62
The seven years that Catherine Emmons Phelps '62 spent at Latin had a lasting impact on her life. "I feel a close bond to Latin," she says, "Latin has always been central to my life, and education has always been a priority for my family." For these reasons, Catherine selected Latin as one of the beneficiaries in her estate plan. In October, Catherine and several of her classmates got together during Homecoming & Reunion Weekend. "We realized during dinner that all of us were extremely influenced by Dr. Dolezal." Whatever their chosen profession-doctor, lawyer, or interior designer-all "love to write" and credit Dr. Dolezal for honing their skills.
Catherine's generosity will help to ensure that the next generation of Latin students will have teachers like Dr. Dolezal, who empower their students to become passionate life-long learners.
