Congratulations to Olivia Boyd, Class of 2022, who was named honorable mention recipient in The Historic New Orleans Collection student essay contest.
Olivia used the extended metaphor of a forgotten child to describe plastic, “a product celebrated upon its conception, but spurned as it aged. And industry, its parent, did not have the dignity to cease fashioning new children after the abuse started. . . . It kept on producing siblings.”
On the 50th anniversary of this Earth Day, with respect for all of God's creation and our focus on Goal 3, we celebrate how Olivia and her peers at Sacred Heart are ready to change the world!
