In May, Mrs. Foshee and a group of 23 St. Mary’s students and parents visited New York City. They visited Radio City Music Hall and met a Rockette, toured the Top of the Rock, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Ellis Island, St. Paul’s Chapel, Wall Street, Chinatown, Little Italy, Harlem Drive, the Statue of Liberty, the 9-11 Museum and Memorial, Central Park and attended two Broadway shows.

School Tours of America presents a Citizenship Award to a student who exemplifies the qualities of integrity, service and leadership during a tour. This award was inspired by John F. Kennedy’s 1963 Inaugural Address challenging youth to assume the responsibility of American citizenship, “asking not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”

This year’s award was presented to Mallory Lee. Pictured with Mallory is St. Mary’s Assistant Principal Andrea Harrell.
