On the first day of school, Aug. 17, St. Teresa’s Academy welcomed new students and teachers to school with the Passing of the Legacy ceremony. The ceremony began with a speech from President Nan Bone and a prayer from new campus minister Andrea Essner. The senior class president then gave a speech to the freshman. Next, all new students lined up to receive a blessed medal, prayer card and hug from a senior. The ceremony was closed with singing and dancing by students, faculty and staff.
