Today, Mrs. Paula Atkeson was named the 2014-2015 Archdiocese of Omaha Educator of the Year! Mrs. Atkeson is a wonderful teacher, friend, mother, and all-around incredible human being! It is a great honor for our school to have such an amazing individual as part of our Saint Mary's family! Mrs. Atkeson is the third Saint Mary's teacher to be awarded this honor!

Marcus Schneider was the lone qualifier for state journalism this year. Marcus is an outstanding photographer and had many photos sent to be viewed from many of St. Mary's activities. State Journalism will take place April 27th in Norfolk. Good luck Marcus!
The St. Mary's state speech qualifiers, Ellery Butterfield, Logan Spencer, Noah Johnson, and Brittany Soukup, competed in Kearney on Friday, March 27th.
Each contestant had two preliminary rounds, and Logan Spencer was the only SMH competitor to break finals. There were seven people in Entertainment finals, and Logan finished 3rd in the State of Nebraska in Class D-1 Entertainment Speaking. Congratulations on a job well done and a great season!
