“Ursuline was good to me. We owe her a debt of gratitude. It’s time for us (as he gestured to his classmates) to pay it forward.”
Tradition is synonymous with Ursuline High School. Though many years have passed since you walked the halls at 750 Wick Avenue, shared alumni experiences remain. Our students still stand when an adult enters the room and pray the Memorare at the Shrine. And, while the style has changed over the last 118 years, our students still wear uniforms. Ursuline High School is mindful that our connection to our students does not end at graduation. We make a concerted effort to engage alumni ~ whether by invitations to events such as the Annual Auction or Alumni Golf Outing, the printing of the Alumni Quarterly magazine or by asking them to serve on various committees. These efforts keep our graduates connected with both their Alma Mater and with each other.
The importance of alumni support can never be understated. Their gifts of time and talent enrich our school community. Their generosity of treasure – to the Annual Appeal, Endowment Fund and Capital Projects – provides us with invaluable resources so that Ursuline High School continues to grow and thrive.
Much has changed since 1905 when Mother Vincent O’Connell opened the doors to the Ursuline Academy of the Holy Name of Jesus, a simple day school for girls In the ensuing 100 years, we admitted boys, added a new building while educating students in the Ursuline tradition. We are now 19,000 alumni strong. And we’ve added many new ways to communicate with our graduates: a weekly e-newsletter, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin – vehicles of communication that the Ursuline Sisters could not even have imagined in 1905. While many things have changed, there are many constants ~ our loyal alumni who while giving back are paying it forward. This support for a school that they love will surely keep the Ursuline tradition alive, thriving and a viable option for future generations of young people who right now are simply dreaming about the day when they will be wearing green and gold.
Soli Deo Gloria!

Maureen Farran Gutierrez attended Saint Edward School. While an Ursuline student, she was enrolled in the commercial course and excelled in the secretarial, typing and business classes which would play an important role in her 45-year career in the business world.
After graduating from Ursuline in 1963, Maureen attended Youngstown State University and graduated with an Associate Degree in Buisness Administration. She began her career working for the Steelworkers Union for several years before taking the exam and being hired at the United States Postal Service. Her career at the Postal Service spanned 32 years starting as a secretary for the Postmaster and later as the Human Resources Specialist. While in Human Resources, Maureen would proctor the postal exams for aspiring employees. She would often travel to Cleveland and Toledo to assist their office staffs in administering these exams as well. Throughout her career, Maureen was Acting Supervisor of Delivery Operations at several area post offices and eventually retired as the Manager of Vehicle Operations at the Youngstown vehicle maintenance facility.
Maureen has been married for 55 years to Anthony Gutierrez. They have two daughters: Kellie (Ursuline Class of 1993) and Kristen (Class of 2000). Two grandchildren: Dylan and Gia, and two granddogs: Apollo and Yoda, complete the family.
Maureen has always been a ‘loyal daughter’ of Ursuline. As an Ursuline parent, she attended her daughters sporting events and school plays. She has been a staunch supporter of Ursuline’s many fundraisers. She was a faithful volunteer for the Annual Phone-A-Thon to raise funds for the Annual Appeal. Maureen began to help organize the Class of 1963’s 10-year reunion. This has continued to be her passion as she helped organize and prepare her class reunion every 5 years and is currently helping to plan the her 60th Class Reunion set for 2023.
In retirement, Maureen enjoys reading, swimming and enjoying activities with her grandchildren. She is a member of Kids Crew of Akron Children’s Hospital of the Mahoning Valley and is a member of Angels of Easter Seals Society. Maureen was a long-time member of Saint Edward Parish while living in Liberty Township and volunteered at the church’s many activities including bingo, spaghetti dinners, and school functions. She and her husband are now members of Saint Michael Parish after relocating to Canfield.

As a Youngstown native and long-time resident of Youngstown, Anthony was involved in the revitalization of the Central Business District since the 1970s. Significant community projects include the Covelli Center, The Mahoning County Justice Center and the YSU WATTS Indoor Training Facility.
In 1997, K. Anthony Hayek Associates merged with ms consultants, engineers, architects and planners, one of the top 500 engineering and architectural firms in the country with over 350 employees and seven branches in the Midwest and North Carolina.
He has served as Project Principal, Director and Manager on over 800 projects throughout his career. Among his past significant projects are the Boardman Township Administration and Police buildings, Poland Police Station, Girard Police and Administration buildings, YSU’s Bliss Hall Fine Arts Center and Ford Theater, Ursuline High School’s Little Theater on Bryson Street, Ursuline Sisters Preschool, Saint Maron Church and Maronite Center, Holy Family, Saint Paul and Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Mr. Anthony’s Social Hall, the Ohio Heart Institute, Hillside Hospital Rehabilitation Center and the Antonine Village Assisted Living and Daycare Center.

Throughout his career he has earned 17 design awards from both AIA and the Civic Improvements Committee of the Youngstown Chamber.

In 2017, Hayek semi-retired and presently oversees business development for ms consultants’ architectural sector.

Endowment Fund, Inc.
A private, Catholic school education at Ursuline is invaluable. The Irish tradition lives on beyond the halls, enduring into the personal and professional lives of past students. This long-lasting tradition isn’t possible without the financial support of Ursuline’s alumni and friends.
