An Interview with SNJM Sister Kathleen Ross

January 20, 2021

In this video, Editor-in-Chief Adriana James-Rodil interviewed Sister Kathleen Ross, SNJM, over Zoom to discuss her reflection in the Rose Project Journal. Beginning with general questions, followed by more specific ones, James-Rodil gained more of an insight into Ross’s journey from being Academic Vice President of Fort Wright College of the Holy Names in Spokane, Washington, to co-founding Heritage College in Toppenish — in the Yakama Indian Reservation — where, as I quote from her reflection, “the poverty rate was three times the rate in Seattle and no four-year degree programs were offered within commuting distance of almost 100,000 people.” Most in the area were Native Americans and Mexican immigrants, and during the interview, James-Rodil and Ross were also able to connect her life experiences to the current climate in the U.S. surrounding immigration and media coverage on marginalized groups.
