Marie Fitzgibbon, Sydney Kirk, and Keira Sipe were honored at the Medallion Ball

Three of Seton LaSalle's seniors were among the 109 young ladies honored at the 58th Annual St. Lucy's Auxiliary to the Blind Medallion Ball. These 109 young ladies, all High School seniors from around the Pittsburgh area, were each awarded the Bishop’s Medallion after achieving 150 hours of volunteer service starting during their freshman year.
Seton LaSalle Seniors, Marie Fitzgibbon, Sydney Kirk, and Keira Sipe were thrilled to be a part of this very special celebration where they were each presented the Saint Joan of Arc Medallion for their dedication and service. Each completed the required 150 hours of community service, even through a global pandemic, which covered a wide array of charitable organizations.
Marie Fitzgibbon earned her hours volunteering at St. Bernard Church, including fish fries and Vacation Bible School, and from attending two week-long Mission trips through Seton LaSalle and St. Bernard Youth Group. "I chose to go on mission week because it’s a wonderful opportunity to serve others while spending a fun week with friends.  And my favorite memory from the Medallion Ball was dancing with my friends!"
Sydney Kirk volunteered at the St Winifred food bank packing and delivering food to elderly residents, at Summers Best Two Weeks on Kitchen crew, and at St Thomas More's Vacation Bible School and Lenten Fish Fry. "I chose St Winifred and the food bank during Covid because of how much we could do every time we went.  My favorite moment at the Medallion Ball was being escorted by my Brother after receiving my Medallion, then dancing with everyone!"
Keira Sipe volunteered for Meals on Wheels baking cookies, a week-long Mission trip through St. Louise youth group, and through an Upper Saint Clair Girl Scout camp. "I picked these activities because I enjoy going to mission week with my friends and I used to be a Girl Scout and camper at the camp and always wanted to be an aid when I was older. My favorite Medallion memory was the Waltz and dancing after dinner."
