Cape Girardeau, Mo -- The principal, Brother David Anthony Migliorino, O.S.F., of Notre Dame Regional High School announced that Hannah Dodson has been named a Commended Student in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program.  A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by the principal to this scholastically talented senior.

Hannah is the daughter of Dr. Rob and Heather Dodson of Cape Girardeau. She is on the girls Volleyball team and manages the boys Volleyball team.  Hannah is a member of National Honor Society, National Art Honor Society, National Spanish Honor Society, and Future Business Leaders of America.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise.  Although they will not continue in the 2019 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2019 competition by taking the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).

“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC.  “These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation.  We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”

Last week Chaffee High School Red Devils hosted the ND Bulldogs in their annual “pink out game". Three people were honored from the Chaffee community for either currently having or recently beating cancer.  Each player chose a person to recognize by playing in their honor or in their memory.  The Booster Club made a $150 donation to this worthy cause.

Throughout her college education, Myriah Bernard has been looking to combine her interest in diplomacy and love for world cultures. Thanks to her hard work and a shared Uber ride, next month, she’ll be doing just that as a student delegate at the 42nd World Federation of United Nations Association’s (WFUNA) Plenary Assembly and 3rd Global Youth Forum in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

Since July 22, Bernard has been working as an intern for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) at their headquarters in Washington, D.C. One day, during a rideshare from work, she was joined by United Nations member Ralph Johnson. They discussed her interest in working for the U.N. someday, and Johnson informed her of the Plenary Assembly.

“He gave me his information in case I had any questions, and said he thought it would all work out for me,” said Bernard. “A week later, I received an email that said I had been nominated by Ralph as a youth delegate.”

Bernard will be one of 5 students from the U.S. serving at the event in October. She says the youth forum is only in its third year, and she’s honored to be one of 15 students across the country to have served.

“It’s going to be really interesting to hear different minds come together from all over the world and try to find that happy medium,” said Bernard. “For example, the way we look at an issue is going to be very different from the way Ukraine looks at an issue. What we think of as an issue might not even be an issue in Ukraine.”

The WUFNA Plenary Assembly is held every 3 years, and hosts over 50 United Nations Associations from across the world. Here, representatives establish goals for the organization, as well as update and approve their constitution and by-laws. Some specific topics discussed will include establishing an international data sharing system on human trafficking activity, free primary education, and policies regarding the non-separation of refugee families.  

“This isn’t a normal U.N. meeting that focuses on specific topics like education and human rights,” said Bernard. “This specific event is focused on supporting the U.N. on a higher level, such as tackling the upcoming year and working out challenges they face in their daily activities.”

Student delegates will also have the opportunity to vote in an executive board for the Youth Advisory Council, for which Bernard hopes to be elected.

Bernard will graduate from Southeast Missouri State University in December with degrees in political science and communication studies, and a minor in global studies. The following month, she will leave for Ethiopia to serve in the Peace Corp for two and a half years.

“For the first three months, I’ll have in-country training where I’ll learn all the languages and cultural practices and about my specific job,” said Bernard. “I’ll also be practicing language here on my own during these next few months, so I’ll go there with at least some language under my belt.”

Bernard said receiving support from her family and friends back home, along with watching her dreams play out, makes her hard days a lot easier.

“My advice is to never feel like your dreams are limited to possibilities. Everything is possible - it can happen. You just have to keep trying and don’t settle,” said Bernard. “And I think that it’s cool that I can actually give that advice now.”

Opening Prayer Service

The Opening Prayer Service for the 2018-19 school year was held on Friday, August 24th. 

Brother David set the tone of the year by asking students and faculty to keep their eyes on the Cross.  Everything we do should be with Christ in our minds and in our hearts.  As the cross was held before each class, he blessed each class.  He finished by blessing the faculty.

Our prayer is that all faculty and students have a blessed school year.  Through the ups and downs that may come this year, may we all keep our eyes on the Cross!

To protect the textbooks, the Media Center has asked that all books have a cover.  Mrs. Powderly went old school with the Sociology Classes and taught students how to cover in paper bags.

Letters from Clare is a new program launched this school year.  Saint Clare and Saint Agnes communicated via hand written letters personally carried back and forth between Bohemia and Assisi by Franciscan Friars as they made their dangerous travels on foot across Europe.  ND alumni wrote letters to this year's freshman class, welcoming them to the ND family and letting them know someone is praying for them. Letters were handed out in Theology classes. 

Thank you alumni who participated in the program! We continue to pray for you!
