On Monday, our students participated in Faith-in-Action activities. The Class of 2024 used this day to explore the social justice issues surrounding poverty. The Class of 2023, originally scheduled to pack 1,200 weekend food boxes for low-income children, used their time to learn about SUA’s commitment to doing work that consciously, systemically, and sustainably serves or attempts to solve a local community need. Members of the Class of 2022 had a couple of activities available to them: junior-level retreat or Junior Academy Alum Leadership Day. And, the Class of 2021 participated in Mass and alumnae conversations. It was a wonderful experience for the members of our SUA community to put our faith into action.
Congratulations to Grace Scheve! Grace was recently named a Distinguished Student Leader by the National Student Council and the National Association of Secondary School Principals. The Distinguished Student Leaders program was created to encourage students to reach their full potential as leaders. SUA is confident that Grace will use her current knowledge and skills to be a leader throughout her life, as well as continue to grow and make the world a better place.
Also, congratulations to all of our fall sports teams. Though the season may have had a different look and feel, the girls embraced their new norms and protocols and prevailed. The success of our athletes and their coaches is certainly notable by the array of nominations and commendations by the GGCL. Please take a minute to see all our the SUA accomplishments. Finally, a special congratulations to our CC and volleyball teams. Avery Stewart will represent the RunDawgs next Saturday at the state cross country meet. SUA SpikeDawgs will compete in regional semifinal play on Thursday. Congratulations and Good Luck!
