While the year has been filled with lights, Dominicamera and action, it is sadly coming to an end. Although the final curtain of the year is closing and the Fourth Quarter is coming to an end, the memories we’ve all made will live on.
Dominican sports made their mark this spring with spectacular achievements. The tennis team continued their success with a team State Runner-Up title, and teammates Morgan Forshag and Gabby Terranova placed first in doubles! Along with the tennis team, the softball team showed their skill in state competition and proudly earned the State Runner-Up title! Way to go ladies!
Every year, Student Council works with other schools in the New Orleans area to plan the Slam-n-Jam tournament, a day of beach volleyball and fun in the sun. This year, two teams from Dominican competed and represented the school with pride. Seeing fellow classmates show their school spirit with their friends is what makes working Slam-n-Jam so rewarding.
With the end of the school year comes elections for next year’s school leaders: the 2017-2018 Student Council Executive Board! Congratulations to President Mackie Smith, Vice President Cole Pittman, Secretary Katie Mouton, and Treasurer Tia Peck! Being on the Executive Board is an incredible experience, and I’m so excited to see what you all have in store for next year.
As the Class of 2017 begins to give their final salutes, we remember all the amazing times we’ve shared together. Even though we will be parting, we will never forget our time at Dominican, the friends we’ve met and the memories we’ve made. Wherever we go, the bond that we share as a class will always bring us back to our second home and to the people who helped shape us into strong, confident women. So, here’s a salute to you, Class of 2017!
On behalf of the entire 2016-17 EBoard, let me say it has been an honor serving you, the student body of St. Mary’s Dominican High School. I cannot wait to see where life takes us!
