Last week, we received some wonderful news regarding one of our alumni, Kaitlin Horne. Kaitlin is a sophomore at UW-Whitewater. Her major is education...a major she picked back in 7th grade when she did an assignment at St. Mary's for "what do you want to be when you grow up". She picked education due to a number of teachers she had at St. Mary's that she both loved and who inspired her so much that she knew then, that teaching was the career for her!!
Kaitlin received a campus award yesterday at a ceremony held at the University. She received the "Outstanding Servant Leadership" award. She was chosen for all her philanthropic work for the American Cancer Society, including over 100 hours of volunteer work. She is the Philanthropic co-chair for her sorority Alpha Sigma and the American Cancer Society with an emphasis on breast cancer. She has organized several fund raising events throughout the year for the sorority to be involved in, as well as volunteer work at the local high school and grade schools and community. Her work also helped her sorority win the "Outstanding Chapter Excellence Award".
We are very proud of her. The faculty should also take pride in the education she received during her 8 years at St. Mary’s as well as the Christian Formation work camps she participated in. Helping others is a wonderful part of her life.
