Sacred Heart honors distinguished grad
Principal Lucy Shawn of Sacred Heart Catholic School presented the 2015-16 NCEA Distinguished Graduate Award to Sister Delores Adelman on Feb. 3.
Adelman was raised in the Gervais area and attended Sacred Heart Catholic School. She graduated from the school in 1956 and later joined Sisters of St. Mary. Her religious vocation began when she was in the first grade with Sister Innocentia at Sacred Heart. Adelman decided she wanted to become a sister during her senior year of high school.
Adelman taught at many schools in the Archdiocese of Portland for 20 years and was even principal of Sacred Heart. She has since become known as a massage therapist. In 2011, Sister Delores established Soups On an annual event to address hunger in the Beaverton area.
