April is designated National Volunteer Month and this week is National Volunteer Week, dedicated to honoring all of the volunteers in our communities as well as encouraging volunteerism. This week, as Chemin de Fer kicks into high gear, Colleen Leahy Special Events and Alumni Functions Coordinator, reflects on our Academy volunteers.

Sometimes words aren’t enough, but here they are: “thank you” to our volunteers. In honor of National Volunteer Week, and on behalf of the Academy, we extend our heartfelt gratitude for all you do. You are wonderful! You help us live our mission and make it fun along the way.  From the incredible volunteers who helped make our fall events such a success to those who have been dedicating the past several months to ensuring our Journey to Morocco is unforgettable, I am amazed daily by the dedication and passion of our Academy community. 

As Saint Madeleine Sophie, foundress of the Society of the Sacred Heart said more than 200 years ago, “Your example, even more than your words, will be an eloquent lesson to the world.” By volunteering for our school, Academy students see the example you are setting — an example of selfless spirit, generosity, and building community. We commend you for the example you are setting for your children – a model of caring, service, and leadership.

From my heart, thank you!
