Anna Laine, senior at Barat Academy College Preparatory School, was one of 30 area high school students honored with the Dr. Martin Luther King Model of Justice Award Sunday, Jan. 20, at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis. The awards ceremony is a highlight of the 43rd annual Mass for the Preservation of Peace and Justice, which commemorates the birth and legacy of Rev. King.
It is with a heavy heart that we say “good-bye” and best of luck to the Lu He students who will be returning to Beijing, China to complete their high school careers. Each student is holding their certificate of active and successful participation while here for this semester and a gift and note from one of their teachers from China.
Congratulations to the Jingle Belles! Anna Laine, 12th grade, and Audrey Coletti, 6th grade, combine forces to compete in an after school physics event to see who can make the fastest Santa Sleigh carrying 100 mg weight. With a time of 5.73 secs, the Jingle Belles secured a first place trophy and also tied for the most creative design.
