Alumnae Spotlight

Mary Donovan Becnel, Sioux of 2008
 
"The most significant value I learned from Ursuline is Serviam. I strive to live out Serviam each and every day with a generous and open heart. I believe it is important to use your gifts and encourage others to do the same to make the world a better place."

 
 

St. Angela's Feast Day

A Great Day to Serve Others!

"You have more need to serve others, than they have to be served."  - St. Angela Merici
 
On January 27, the entire Academy participated in service in honor of St. Angela's Feast Day. Some students volunteered at non-profit organizations around the city and others worked on our very own campus. Faculty, staff and alumnae also served. In fact, Baton Rouge alumnae, along with Dr. McNay (President) and Christy Jackson Zurcher '00 (Alumnae Director) continued service the very next day at the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. 
 
How awesome to think that Ursuline girls of all ages are continuing to carry out the vision St. Angela had in 1535 when she formed the Order of St. Ursula. 
 

 
 

Young Alumnae Give Back

As Members of the Retreat Team!

Twelve young alumnae, representing Macs, Skips and Sioux, from 6 different colleges took time from their Christmas break to give back to their Alma Mater. Megan Mineo '13, Erin Caldarera '14, Hanan Rimawi '14, Mignon Blanc '15, Sydney Clark '15, Lauren Legendre '15, Lyndsey Rudolph '15, Bailey Boten '16, Gabrielle Brown '16, Kendall McGoey '16, Jeannie Nguyen '16, and Mia Reed '16 were leaders for the Senior Sioux retreat that took place January 4-6 in Rosaryville. 

The leaders each had a role whether it was collecting supplies, making name tags, organizing the prayer services or telling their own stories. They organized everything! Beth Joubert '80, Campus Minister, said that many of the Retreat Team leaders felt as if they needed the retreat more than the seniors. They also loved that they were able to give back to Ursuline in this special way. A huge thank you to them for continuing St. Angela's vision of living "in harmony, united together, all of one heart and will."
