Alumnae

Alumnae Association

The purpose of this organization is to assist in a practical way, for the benefit of Sacred Heart High School and the furtherance of Catholic education. We assist by uniting all efforts in accomplishing worthy activities whether spiritual, financial or social. By doing so, the Alumnae Association fosters a lasting spirit of loyalty to the Alma Mater, upholds its traditions, and perpetuates friendships.

The Alumnae Association meets, for all general meetings and purposes, on the school campus: 2111 Griffin Avenue, Los Angeles, California 90031. SHHS Alumnae Association Board Meetings are held on on a regular basis. Contact alumnae@shhsla.org for the next scheduled meeting.

Alumnae Board President's Welcome

Dear Fellow Alumnae,

Welcome Comets! The 2021-2022 academic school year ended in June, and we have enthusiastically entered the 2022-2023 academic school year. We give thanks for the wonderful and meaningful year that just ended and we congratulate and pray for the Senior Class of 2022 as they pursue their higher education. We anticipate the day they will return to their Alma Mater and share their successes and achievements. In these uncertain times,  it is reassuring to know that our Alma Mater continues to be strong and to provide the excellent education that allows students to achieve their highest potential.

To begin, we are excited to introduce the Board Officers of the Sacred Heart High School (SHHS) Alumnae Association for the coming year through June 2025:

  • Financial Officer – Rose De Leonardis ‘75

  • Secretary – Teresa Ybarra ‘70

  • Parliamentarian – S. Laurence Marie Diaz ‘58

  • Secretary of Class Representatives – Liz Beaudine ‘65
