Junior education major Kristin Burke was awarded first place in the Lasallian Essay Contest, as part of Saint Mary’s #300 celebration — honoring Saint John Baptist de La Salle, the founder of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and the patron saint of educators, who died 300 years ago. Read Burke’s essay, “Empowered in Lasallian Tradition.”

Additionally, four Saint Mary’s and Immaculate Heart of Mary students, Isaiah Lippert, Timothy Welch, Riley Becher, and Nathan Budde, won the Lasallian talent contest, also part of the #300 celebration, with an original song about De La Salle’s inspirational life.
