Alum Feature: Tiffany Landry ’13 – Excellence in Art

Gabby Landry '18, Editor-in-Chief

As the Class of 2017 finishes their Capstone projects, the Class of 2013 finishes their senior year of college with a variety of final projects and presentations.  For Art majors, this means a massive undertaking: the creation of an entire series or project to showcase the skills they have acquired during their four years of undergraduate studies. My sister, Tiffany Landry ‘13, recently completed her Senior art project at St. Michael’s College in Colchester, VT.  Her series, entitled What., was showcased in the McCarthy Art Gallery at St. Mike’s for two weeks.  The series is incredibl...

Convincing my mom that I really did not want to play soccer, dance or do gymnastics was difficult, but it was the best thing I ever did. Horseback riding has taught me more than I could have ever imagined. When I entered the High Rock Stables lesson program as a very little, but determined, five year old, I had no idea that this sport would change every aspect of my life for the better. I made countless sacrifices for my animals, but I do not regret a ...

Pulitzer Prize Award Winning Photography

Jenna McCarthy '19, Contributing Writer

"If it makes you laugh, if it makes you cry, if it rips out your heart, that’s a good picture,” said Eddie Adams, winner of the 1969 Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography. Over April vacation, I visited Washington D.C. with my family. We visited several museums, including the Newseum, which exhibited all the winners of the Pulitzer Prize for photography. All of the photographs were extremely powerful, as they demonstrated the true horrors and hope of life. Photographs from the Vietnam War and terrorist attacks lined the walls of the exhibit. In addition, displays of refugees in camps a...
