We’re always excited to hear what Ursuline students are up to!

Here are some accomplishments shared by our students.

Anne Ermish '21 recently earned her Girl Scout Gold Award. Anne's project established a clothing closet for young people at Cassata Catholic High School in Fort Worth. This included converting two floors of an unused building at the school and installing receiving, inspection and storage areas for donated clothing. She finished out 1,000 square feet of showroom space and filled it with attractive, practical fashions for the Cassata school community. Additionally, she established a young mother supply depot filled with infant clothing, diapers, and other needed baby supplies.

The Environmental Club has been busy! 

They are growing peppers, different assortments of lettuce, kale, basil, asparagus, broccoli, and cauliflower. Additionally, they’ve planted some pollinator plants to attract butterflies and bees! 

“The garden was part of our lesson on biodiversity and will be used to teach gardening skills,” said Club Leader Juliana Stanford ‘21. “The best part is that everything we grow will be donated to food pantries!”
