Annual Fund: Recognition

What Our Students Are Grateful For: A Photo Contest

During the Saints4Scholarships' 2013 Tag Week, students throughout campus were asked to take photos of things that they were grateful for on campus. After receiving many photos, we would like to thank each participant for their unique work. Also, we'd like to announce the winner, Anna Kelly, for her photo of the trees on campus! Congratulations!

The Winner!
-Anna Kelly


This photo, done by Anna Kelly is the winner of the photo contest! Congratulations!

"I am thankful that money was donated to build Jarecki-Lacks Hall and the rest of the library. This photo was taken in the study area in JLH, near the conference room."
-Karen Havens


"I am grateful for the AMC where I spend my time painting and developing photographs!"

-Lane Hokanson

"I am grateful for anyone who has donated to Aquinas and everyone who is going to donate to Aquinas. In this picture, there is Sturrus Sports & Fitness Center and also the lot where Phase II will be thanks to donors!"
