Our final Honorary Alumni tonight needs no introduction. This spitfire, no nonsense, take no prisoners, jump in with both feet and lead the way for anyone and anything they need-blessed our school with a much needed revitalizing spirit when she came! She runs from one event to the next, encouraging her students to LEAD and be involved to better themselves, our school, and our world. Her class teaches life lessons, responsibility, and to think and solve problems without being micromanaged, and her students thrive knowing she has confidence in them to plan, implement, and succeed at any challenge they are faced with. Her idealism and optimism were crucial factors in the conception and completion of the new St. Joseph High School Cyber Cafe and Courtyard this year, and her motivation to spread the word about our school, parish, and kids has influenced students to promote our school through youtube videos and marketing techniques many adults would be amazed with. St. Joseph’s, its staff, and students have been blessed and bettered because of this High School Rodeo Queen from Clinton, AR. Her husband Jason and she believe in this school and church, its values, principles, and offered education so much that their own daughters, Mary Alex and Karly Rae will one day join her in becoming a Bulldog.
It is my great honor to present my dear friend, partner in crime, and fellow changemaker, Mrs. Monica Lieblong as an honorary graduate of St. Joseph High School!
