Two students from the archdiocese used their artistic talent for a good cause in entering the 2016-17 Catholic Campaign for Human Development Multimedia Youth Contest.

Mission accomplished.

Cor Jesu sophomore Kelly Beekman won the grand prize for her song, "One of Millions." Fellow Cor Jesu sophomore Emma Mohrmann won third place in the grades 10-12 division for her artwork, "It Takes 17 Muscles to Smile." They were among the five national award winners in the contest.

Campaign enhances discipline program at Catholic schools

Holy Trinity School in St. Ann strives to meet its students' academic needs and develop their potential while calling them to be witnesses of the Gospel through their words and actions.

The process of developing problem-solving skills and leadership qualities is easier at the school thanks to the Virtue-Based Restorative Discipline program pioneered by the school the past six years after being developed for the archdiocese by educator Lynne Lang.
