I know the Sisters of Saint Francis touched many students’ lives at the College of Saint Teresa, but I have to admit one favorite Sister changed my life forever. I met her my freshman year as my teacher for a math class. I thought she was a wonderful math teacher, but I really didn’t have an affinity for math. I LOVED science, and spent my first few years gobbling up all the science classes I could. Our paths would not cross again until late in my junior year at CST.
During the Spring of my junior year, there was a ceremony out in the courtyard outside of Lourdes Hall. I really wasn’t familiar with this tradition called “Campus Court” and as the names were called out for the court, I wasn’t really paying all that much attention until they got to the last name, “The Queen,” and somehow, they called my name! All of a sudden, I am standing up in front of the group in complete shock. This must be a mistake! I demand a recount! I thought to myself. Maybe I could be a member of Campus Court, but I sure couldn’t lead the group! How could this happen? People must not realize all my faults and weaknesses.
