Jan. 24, 2017 – Washington Co., WI – Catholic Schools Week will begin Monday across Washington County as schools participate in Mass, a Catholic Quiz Bowl, and naming the winner of the Mother Cabrini award.
In an effort to celebrate the week we reached out graduates of parochial schools to get their reflections on how a Catholic School education impacted their life.
Ann Enright of Boltonville: I attended Holy Trinity Catholic School, Kewaskum, from 1951-1959. Our teachers were nuns from the order of The Sisters of St. Agnes. Their mother house was and still is in Fond du lac, WI.
There were four classrooms with two grades per room. The nuns were pious about their faith, well educated and loved their jobs. They expected respect and students to work up to their abilities, no less.
Demanding quality personal effort was a motivator for me which I have continued to apply in my careers as wife, mother, real estate broker and citizen.
English, History and Geography were my favorite subjects. High School classes were a breeze because I had such a good foundation. I think I can still diagram a sentence and say most of the Gettysburg Address thanks to those nuns.
Religion was taught with enthusiasm and that enthusiasm has remained with me to the present. I am still learning and taking Bible classes.
