STM Distinguished Graduate

We would like to congratulate our St. Thomas More Distinguished Graduate, Jude Palombo, a 1975 graduate of St. Thomas More. Jude is married to Cindy Messenger Palombo, who was also a 1975 graduate of STM, as well as a prior recipient of the Distinguished Graduate Award.

Jude stated, "My experience as a student of St. Thomas More in the 1970’s was influential in my Catholic formation where I had my first Communion, Confirmation and met numerous friends which I still have today. I further married an alumni from St. Thomas More school and all five of our children attended STM as well. Catholic education positively influenced our entire family in their Catholic development. With the Catholic schools close connection with the parish at large, children can receive sacraments and begin with their family participating is parish life. On a very basic level the daily prayer at the beginning of school is such a spiritual positive thing that any Catholic parent would jump on a Catholic school chance."

Annual Fund Update

We are pleased to announce that our current total of gifts and pledges for this year’s Annual Fund is $132,380. Thanks to all members of the STM Community for contributing such a wonderful amount to benefit the students of St. Thomas More.

Since our last update, we received gifts from Bella and Ben Rawls, Suzanne Terrell, Stephanie and Ricky Falcon, Keith Comeaux, Amy and Mike Kisner, Amanda and David Bordelon, Nancy and Steven Davis, Tami and Mike Moran, and Karen and Mike Saurage . Thank you!

We will continue to provide updates as we acquire additional technological resources for our school.
