The Spotlight is on Community Service at Ramona Convent Remarkable Women Luncheon


Community Service Award presented to Great Minds in STEM™

(Alhambra, CA., April 7, 2011) — In the fifth of Ramona Convent Secondary School’s Remarkable Women series, volunteer and Board of Trustees member Kay Paietta was honored at a brunch on Sunday, April 3, 2011 at Almansor Court in Alhambra.

Community service is a core value of the mother of eight and member of Phi Beta Kappa.. During her college years she volunteered as the music librarian at Stanford. Since 2004, she has served in the same capacity at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. She has sung in church choirs throughout the Los Angeles area.

A member of Ramona’s Board of Trustees since 2003, Kay is well known for her involvement as an advocate for Ramona. She has a heart for helping children, she embodies the spirit of adventure, and she stands as an example of where one’s determination, education, and drive can lead. She is a woman of faith and character and is truly worthy as the fifth recipient of the Ramona Convent Remarkable Woman Award.

In September 2010, Kay was a recipient of the Papal Benemerenti Award that was presented in recognition of outstanding service and commitment to the Church and the Holy Father.

This year’s event also included a Community Service Award.  An outstanding community non-profit was chosen because of their mission alignment and the exemplary work they are doing to further the educational aspirations of students seeking careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.  Great Minds in STEM™ is an educational non-profit organization dedicated to keeping America technologically strong by promoting STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers to underserved segments of the population. Through innovative partnerships with corporate sponsors, government entities, universities, and K-12 schools, they have been able to develop and deliver dynamic grade-specific programs across the country. Three Ramona Convent alumnae are leaders at this commendable organization: Anna Park Mellado ’89, Diana Ibarra Gonzalez ’98, and Leonor Rodriguez ‘88

Ramona’s Christian Service Award recipients Evita Chavez ’11, Melissa Cendejas ’12, Melissa Holtzen ’13, Leiana Valenzuela ’14, and Agnes song ‘15 were also recognized for service to their school, parishes, and communities.

During its rich 121-year history, Ramona Convent has had many associated with it who have excelled in a wide range of fields, including politics, fashion design, writing, medicine, science, and education.  Kay is the fifth honoree in the Remarkable Women series, the purpose of which is to honor women who have made notable contributions to their communities.
