Mayor Mark Farrell on Sister Jean Schmidt of the University of Loyola-Chicago
Saturday, March 31, 2018
As a born and raised Jesuit-educated San Franciscan, it is my absolute honor to proclaim March 31, 2018 Sister Jean Schmidt Day in the City and County of San Francisco.
Sister Jean is a native San Franciscan, attended Most Holy Redeemer Grammar School and St. Paul High School, and at 98 years young, has been the most loyal and vocal supporter of the University of Loyola-Chicago’s men’s basketball team.
Her mixture of scouting and spiritual advice has guided the underdog Holy Ramblers unprecedented journey to today’s Final Four matchup against the University of Michigan in San Antonio.
Today, I am a Holy Rambler and will be rooting for them to defeat Michigan and become the lowest seeded team to ever make a national championship game.
