Post-graduation appointments: ‘They want you!’

Navy: St. Augustine Academy’s Shannon Hill

Once again, the U.S. military academies are well in the sights of a number of Catholic high school graduates. They include Shannon Hill of St. Augustine Academy, Ventura, who received her appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. A volleyball player and mock trial team member, she hopes to study law after her military service is finished.

At La Salle High School, Pasadena, graduates Renaissance Forster and Elizabeth Lynch have been admitted to the United States Military Academy at West Point. Forster, an honors student and All-League volleyball player for the Lancers’ CIF champions, will study medicine at the Academy, seeking to become a medic and earn her MD following her active duty. Lynch, a standout student who led the Lancers to a top ten finish in the 2014 National Cheer Championships, hopes to make the military her career.

Congratulations to all!

Iowa and us in a Year of Mercy

Kathryn Jean Lopez

It was in the general-purpose room of St. Francis of Assisi Church in West Des Moines that Donald Trump made his last pitch to Iowa voters, inside a caucus room. He wanted to make sure people remembered that not only will he build the wall on our border with Mexico, but that he’s the only candidate who will make Mexico pay for it.
