  • A Dinner of Hope - 2016 PTO Essay Winner

    If I had the opportunity to take Pope Francis out to dinner, there is no doubt where we would go. It is a special place, casually known as KHS.

KHS stands for the Katherine Hanley Shelter.

  • A Journey Not Yet Finished - 2015 PTO Essay Winner

    As a curious young child, I was always very mindful and aware of my surroundings. I would study the color of the trees in the fall, observe the unique snowflakes that fell onto the window in the winter, and listen to the singing birds in the spring. Now that I am older, it is much more difficult to spend the time to notice all of these little things that surround me; it feels as if I’m only skimming a book instead of taking in every detail.
