March Student News

3/8/2017
We’re always excited to hear what our students are up to!

Here are some accomplishments shared by our students.

Ursuline makes a difference near and far.

Students attended the Soup’s On Luncheon earlier this semester. The luncheon is the annual fundraiser for The Stewpot, which helps homeless and at-risk individuals in Dallas. Seniors Hope Corbin and Gabrielle Piamonte attended the event with juniors Erika Chavez, Molly Donohoe, Celine Manalansan, and Frances Perez.

“It was such a unique and special event for our students,” said Director of Annual Gifts Michele Snyder, who chaperoned the event with personal counselor Mary Campise. “It humanized homelessness, and it showed our commitment to Serviam.”

All six students are active in Ursuline’s SRO (Students Reach Out) Club. The student organization prepares and serves dinner at the Hillcrest House, which helps people living with HIV.

The luncheon’s silent auction featured the artwork of area homeless, and a panel discussed the future of homelessness in Dallas. Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings was on the panel with Dallas Police Sergeant Jeff Tooker, Dallas Morning News Editor Keven Ann Willey, and Florencia Velasco Fortner, President and CEO of The Concillio.

The table was donated to Ursuline by Ellen Smith Pryor ’74 and Will Pryor.
