Lourdes was a remarkable and formative place for me. The teachers were incredible in nurturing the gift of Faith and in providing solid foundations for a quality education. Loretta Beeman and Laura Hall were very inspiring to me. I recall thinking that I could have skipped many courses as a Freshman and Sophomore in high school with the education I received at Lourdes. I was taught to pray, to serve, to learn, and to imagine. Moreover, our graduating class of the year 2000 experienced a wave of newness that brought us together: a new Church building, a new school wing, and a new millennium. I remember the excitement around these changes. I am very grateful for the gift of a Catholic education at Our Lady of Lourdes. Praise the Lord.
