After her death, family and friends raised funds to preserve an unobstructed, undeveloped view of the college. As Director, Angela integrates her love of nature, science education and conservation into the mission and outreach of WPNR and Saint Vincent College by leading its strategic partnerships, program development and outreach, and Reserve landscape and infrastructure development.

misc_none 2:30 PM  -  4:00 PM Mentoring Your One and Only Precious Mind    
    Contact: Reference Desk   412-372-0500 X 4   
   

Thoughts hold power. They can create feelings, influence word choices, impact decisions and even behavior. Thoughts can create or destroy. Our 60,000 thoughts a day will be self-sabotaging if they habitually focus on the negative -- especially worries, put-downs and judgements of self and/or others. Indeed, it has been said that “the mind is the worst torturer.” Because thoughts are invisible, their power is often ignored or underestimated. Join counselor Eileen Colianni to learn how to guard your mind as if it were a priceless diamond. It is! After all, what would you do without it?

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Author Paulette Davidson: A Celebration of Life and Legacy    
    Contact: Reference Desk   412-372-0500 X 4   
   

Author Paulette Davidson will speak about her book A Celebration of Life and Legacy, which follows her spiritual journey with Christ and reveals her ability to submit to God's will, as her story provides you with inspiration to place your hope and faith in God. The narrative begins with a semi-autobiography focusing on family and her experiences in foster care, journeying to her bout with trauma and then to discovering the healing power of Christ. It’s a must-read for those whose faith needs restoration and will surely resonate with anyone who has struggled with adversity.
