2014 Summer Program Prefects

This morning some of the 2014 High School Summer Program prefects who are still on campus gathered to say goodbye to Head Prefect Kathleen Sullivan (’06), who is returning to Washington, D.C., where she is a PhD candidate in literature at the Catholic University of America. Kathleen began working on the Summer Program in 2005, when she was still a student at the College. She has just completed her 10th program as a prefect!

Last year, in a reflection about the Summer Program, she remarked:

“In the great books program, by encountering the original thoughts and minds of the thinkers of the past, these young students are both enabling their minds to think rationally and training their minds to communicate clearly. Freeing themselves from the shackles of ignorance, especially in the faith-filled atmosphere of the College, these young students become more aware of their purpose in life, become more certain in their hope for a life eternal, and become more eager to live a rational, moral, and ethical life — to live the good life.”

Thank you, Kathleen, for your decade of generous and dedicated service — for helping these young men and women to live the good life! May God bless you on your way.
