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

Here are some accomplishments shared by our students.

Haley Hanson '19, Laine Hanson '21, Emily Parrish '19, and Kathryn Wilson '22 traveled to Zambia for a mission trip.

They taught Vacation Bible School to almost 200 at-risk children.

Hanson, who has been on the mission trip three times, quickly realized the children didn't have access to computers.

Haley worked with Laine, Emily, and Kathryn, and they delivered seven Ursuline computers this summer. Ursuline's recent graduates donated the computers.

"Special thanks to Ursuline's Technology Department for overhauling these computers before they were delivered to Zambia," Hanson said. "We hope to continue to send computers by Ursuline graduates and bless this organization and others in Africa."

Angelina Syler '19 showcases her Serviam spirit near and far.

Angelina returned to Guatemala to continue her work with Orphan Outreach. Syler, who first went to Guatemala in 2017, furnished a new room at the Hope and Future House located outside San Lucas.

Through proceeds she collected at a garage sale, she bought supplies needed to furnish a sensory and cognitive stimulation room for infants and young children who reside at the home with their teenage mothers. The young mothers are victims of poverty, homelessness, and abuse.

"After my first trip to Guatemala, I was definitely inspired to do more for the children I met," Syler said.

Her volunteer work helped her complete her Girl Scout Gold Award.

Angelina has been a member of the Women for Orphans Worldwide/Orphan Outreach Club at Ursuline since her freshman year and will serve as this year's President.
