Proud of our St. Anthony students that were recently awarded certificates for participating in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) essay contest. One student, Senior Lora Dodson, won the Maui contest, winning $25 in prizes! Her essay was submitted for the State contest and she won that as well, receiving an additional $50 in prizes in that level. Her essay will now be forwarded on to compete on a national level. Pray for Lora’s success!
