It is frequently easier to deplore racism and its effects than to take responsibility for the privileges some of us receive as a result of it. Key to dealing with white privilege is the courage to own it, and the willingness to learn to be accountable to people of color. – Margaret Alandt, IHM and Pat McClucskey, IHM

A student with her "angel!"Today at St. Agnes Academic High School, we were delighted to host one of our Angels, Barbara, ’57, for lunch with “her student”! Barbara’s generous contribution to our school makes an education at St. Agnes a possibility for Tatiana, a member of the Class of 2021.

Tatiana, a well-rounded Blue Angel, serves on Student Council and is an active member of the Cheer Team and the Theatre Club! She hopes to become a Pre-K teacher, a dream that began when she completed her service hours at the Samuel Field Y’s summer camp program. Tatiana plans to volunteer at the camp again this summer!

The SAAHS Angel Program gives Alumni the opportunity to make a significant difference in a current student’s life. Contributions to the Angel Program allow us to provide need-based scholarships to qualified young ladies who might not otherwise be able to attend the school. We give thanks for all of the Alumni who support our Angel program, and for the impact it has on so many young lady’s lives! For information on becoming an Angel, please contact Denise Fetonte at denise.fetonte@stagneshs.org or call 718-353-6276 ext.30.
