Thank you to our former May Queens for sharing some of their memories from their May Day experiences. From one former May Queen, “To this day, St. Anne's continues to be a small but mighty community of young students, dedicated teachers, thoughtful administrators, hardworking staff members, and invested parents, each of whom are committed to upholding the founding virtues of the school and cultivating a space where students learn not only how to be good students, but how to be good people. I am forever grateful to have been part of such a special community.”
Additional sentiments from former May Queens:
"It is an experience I will never forget; a special and magical time; it was the time when it finally hit me that my time at St. Anne’s was coming to a close; such an important tradition; a rite of passage...What I remember most are the songs…the songs from May Days past have stayed in my heart over the years - these will always be with you...in holding that title, I also represented my class as a whole."

I have been asked to speak about Mother Irene and the wonderful example she set for all of us, specifically about her life of service and her humility. Irene and the other sisters of St. Anne’s took up the challenge of caring for children who were afflicted with polio, a disease that ravaged the bodies of young children, often crippling their limbs. In the old black and white pictures, you will notice that many of the children wore braces on their legs so that they could stand. Others had to be pushed in wheelchairs. Sometimes it paralyzed the muscles in their chests, making it impossible for them to breathe on their own. Imagine for a minute what that must have been like. Imagine the fear that these children felt. Mother Irene and and her fellow sisters knew how hard their mission would be, but they were a very determined band of sisters. They rolled up their sleeves and applied themselves to the task, doing whatever they could to help these children regain their strength...

Our Alumni Spotlight this month features Dr. Jeffrey Lackner ‘74, Professor and Chief of the Behavioral Medicine Division at the University at Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine. In December 2018, he was selected as the winner of the Buffalo Translational Consortium (BTC) 2018 Clinical Research Achievement Award. The work for which he received the award was based on the recently published findings of a landmark NIH-funded clinical trial showing that behavioral self-management treatment developed by his research team was highly effective in reducing gastrointestinal symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
