The Carondelet community mourns the loss of Kenneth H. Hofmann, a creative visionary and generous philanthropist who knew how education – especially Catholic education – was capable of changing everything for a child.
His commitment to opening the doors of opportunity for our area's youth was evident through his lifelong support of Carondelet and De La Salle High Schools as well as the Community Youth Center (CYC) in Concord, and numerous schools and universities. Mr. Hofmann translated his success as an entrepreneur and well-respected community leader into action and commitment to accomplish many great things for the community, touching the lives of thousands across the generations.
Most recently at Carondelet, Mr. Hofmann, through his family foundation, committed the lead gift to fund a state-of-the-art STEM Innovation Center on our campus, demonstrating a vision and entrepreneurial spirit through supporting our young women in their endeavors to make the world a better place. This gift has also created a transformative scholarship fund for Carondelet students, making high-quality Catholic education accessible to more young women.
Carondelet High School will induct its first-ever hall of fame class next month, recognizing the athletic and professional accomplishments of alumnae who attended the Concord-based girls' school between 1993 and 2006. Carondelet Principal Kevin Cushing and Director of Athletics Caitlin Main '05 today announced the members of the inaugural class:
● Jayne Appel Marinelli '06, Basketball
● Natalie Coughlin Hall '00, Swimming
● Tiffany Roberts Sahaydak '95, Soccer
● The 1996 Cross-Country Team
A message from President Bonnie Cotter:
The best part of being an educator here at Carondelet is the opportunity to grow and learn something new each day alongside our students. At 10 a.m. today, hundreds of our students joined with students from across the nation and participated in the National School Walkout, a 17-minute event marking the one-month anniversary of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
The 17-minute "Winton Walkout" was entirely student-organized and led. This was not a school-sponsored assembly. It was the students' voices that demanded to be heard, not the voices of the adults. And while the majority of our students participated in the walkout, other students chose not to. As a school community, we support all our students and their right to express themselves in a safe environment as they continue to learn more about themselves and the world around them.
Carondelet High School today dedicated its state-of-the-art aquatics facility, named for alumna and three-time swimming Olympic gold medalist, Natalie Coughlin Hall, who graduated from the school in 2000. The Natalie Coughlin Aquatic Center is a featured part of the school's brand new, six-acre, Walnut Creek-based Carondelet Athletics Complex.
"Today, we usher in a new era at Carondelet that will open new doors of opportunity for all of our young women – now and for generations to come," said President Bonnie Cotter.
