Ribbon Cutting for Catholic Schools Week and 2019-20 school year registration opening with Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce

On Wednesday, January 30, the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce came to St. Patrick to help cut a ribbon for the significance of the opening of the 2019-20 school year.  Members of the Commerce gathered in the foyer and joined together to hear about Catholic Schools Week.

Chief Executive Officer of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce, Adele Lyons, spoke about the interaction of St. Patrick parents, students, faculty, and staff with the Commerce. District 5 Supervisor, Connie Rockco, spoke about how much attention to School has brought to the area and how happy she is to see the school grow. Dr. Buckley spoke about the theme of this year’s Catholic Schools Week and the true meaning of the celebration. Student ambassadors brought different members of the Commerce around the school for tours and spoke to them about different aspects of our curriculum.

Dr. Buckley said, “It was an honor to have the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce on campus this week as we celebrate Catholic Schools Week and announce the opening of the registration season for the 2019-20 school year. Catholic schools are the highest performing schools in the nation, and what a great time it is to be part of Catholic education! Emerging from St. Patrick are the most top-notch students I have ever met in leadership, scholarship, championship, and most importantly, discipleship. I know that our students will go on to impact the world in the most positive way, and I am proud to be part of something so wonderful!”
