One of our traditions is to send state bound students off to their competition with a "topper tunnel." where all students line the front hallway and cheer for their classmates. Some of the teams and activities honored recently include:
Not many trombonists have the opportunity to play in front of 85,000 adoring fans, but several times each fall, Andrew Jarocki and the Notre Dame Marching Band enter a packed stadium to the delight of the home football crowd--and in front of millions on television. Andrew, of course, has one particular advantage; he plays a Fight Song familiar to all of us who attended Cathedral/Marshall.

The term "gap year" can mean different things to different people. To Garrett Jenkins, Class of 2017, it means a deep dive into a unique healthcare experience from the deck of a ship ... in Africa.
As a part of the Mercy Ships program, Garrett is helping support free healthcare efforts in Africa, while shadowing nurses. The plan is to return to the U.S. and South Dakota State University for their highly-ranked nursing program
