As we celebrate the beginning of summer with family and friends, let's not forget the reason for this weekend: "...that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion. That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." - Gettysburg Address.
Six of our seniors were honored recently at the Cathedral Basilica of SS Peter & Paul during the 37th Annual Archdiocesan Academic Honors Convocation. Congratulations to: Maura Hilsey (Corpus Christi/University of Pittsburgh), Hayoung Kim (University of the Pacific), Molly Smith (St. Rose/Penn State University), Shannon Cikowski (MMR/Penn State University Scheyer's Honors College), Clare Hill (Corpus Christi/University of Georgia) and Matt Falcione (St. Agnes-Sacred Heart/Drexel University).

Recently, Dr. Peter Walsh, MD, a Psychiatrist who has a practice in New York City, and is a 1982 grad of LC, spoke to some of our students. He had recommendations for them in dealing with test anxiety, especially as many will be taking the AP exams over the next two weeks. Dr. Walsh also sponsored a luncheon/networking opportunity for those students who have an interest in medical school and careers.
