From the SHU Archives: Serving Sisters

Several Adrian Dominicans Sisters were well-known for their service to Siena Heights

Sister Jeannine Klemm

Sister Bertha Hominga was the first Siena Heights registrar and seemed to have memorized the transcript of every student.
Sister Laurine Neville was very devoted to working with the migrant farm workers in Lenawee County, and she always involved the students in this ministry.
Sister Irene Morence was dedicated to finding financial aid for every student who needed it. Sister Raphael McDonald was the director of Finance and Planning from 1973-78, a time of major changes at Siena Heights.
Sister Jeannine Klemm (right) was named head of the Art Department in 1957, when there were 20 majors. By 1982, the number had grown to 200. She first worked in Studio Angelico on the fifth floor of Sacred Heart Hall. Read more . . .

The Arts at SHU

Sweeney Todd: The Demon
Barber of Fleet Street

The Arts are alive and well at Siena Heights! This spring, Theatre Siena had a full production schedule, including “August: Osage County” and “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”. The annual alumni dinner theater around the Sweeney Todd production had nearly 100 people attend. The newly created SHU Choir has had a busy first year, performing at numerous venues both on and off campus. They are scheduled to perform at the Vatican next winter. Music will again be offered as a major this fall. Spring is also time for many senior art exhibitions in the Klemm Gallery. These shows are the pinnacle of the art program and feature the best student art Siena Heights has to offer. Pictured is a piece entitled “Reprogram” from Lyndsay Payne’s senior show titled “Analysis.” This summer will be a busy one on campus in the fine arts, including the Creative Stages Fine Arts Camp in June for area youth.
