We're always excited to hear what our students are up to!

Here are some accomplishments shared by our students.

The Ursuline Model UN Club attended the Model United Nations conference in Vancouver.

Students left the conference, the largest high school student-organized Model UN conference in North America, more aware, more educated, and more thoughtful global citizens in an increasingly complex world

Students worked together to create practical and dynamic solutions to the world's most pressing problems.

Sarah Pumphrey '20 became a record holder during a very good cause.

Sarah, along with hundreds of area volunteers, broke the Guinness World Record for most sandwiches made in one hour at TangoTab Feed the City. The outstanding group made 57,662 sandwiches, smashing the old record of 49,100 sandwiches. The sandwiches were donated to local food charities.

"This was an amazing and rewarding experience," Pumphrey said. "People shouldn't go hungry."

The Ursuline CAUSE for Life Club has been busy supporting the Right to Life.

Nicole Clements '20, Michaela Coulter '20, Sarah Hui '20, Abigail Mihalic '20, Silvia Vazquez '20, Augustina de Urtubey '21, Madi Hebert '21, and Olivia Mihalic '22 participated in the 46th annual National March for Life in Washington, D.C.

"There were innumerable powerful and beautiful moments during the pilgrimage," said Hui, who is the CAUSE Club Treasurer. "We said Hail Mary's in solidarity during the march and listened to many motivational speakers. I also learned much more about being pro-life during a Students for Life Conference with talks of different aspects, such as adoption."

Other highlights of the trip included Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of Immaculate Conception, visiting the St. John Paul II National Shrine, and praying in front of relics of St. John Paul II and St. Jean Vianney.
