The 32 members of Visitation Academy’s Youth and Government team were in Jefferson City over the weekend to attend the first of two state conferences, and they did not disappoint. The ladies won appellate trials, debated bills in committee, showed incredible prowess in Parliamentary procedure, passed bills into law, and judged like they were 20-year veterans on the judicial bench.
Visitation Academy senior Annie Dolan served as a real life guardian angel today, as she accompanied Vietnam Air Force veteran Jack Schweitzer on a day trip to Washington, D.C. to visit the National War Memorials. This trip was organized through the local foundation, Greater St. Louis Honor Flight. (GSLHF). The mission of this organization is to safely transport America’s most senior military veterans to Washington, D.C. to experience the memorials built in their honor and ensure these heroic men and women have one of the best days of their life. This is a mission Annie was honored to be a part of.
On June 26, our Middle School golfers participated in the CYC Individual Golf Championship at Eagle Springs Golf Course. Despite high winds, and threatening storms, Olivia M. and Annie R. tied for 2nd with a score of 41 each on the Executive Course at Eagle Springs! Meanwhile, Kiera G. played the front nine and finished in 4th place with a solid round of 52! Kiera, Olivia, and Annie stayed focused and determined despite the less than ideal weather conditions and the pressure of competing in the CYC Championship! We are so proud of these three up and coming young golfers!
