As a result of her honors thesis project, senior Morgan Dynes developed and coordinated a retreat for 6th and 7th grade girls called "body builders". The focus was on building a preteen's positive self-esteem and body image. Her guests included Mrs. Dumas, a nutritionist and parent; McCall Dempsey, national speaker and founder of Southern Smash; and Christine Chrest who led yoga instruction.
Jeffry Marx, Pulitzer Prize winning author of, "Season of Life," spoke with middle school boys as they began their retreat on leadership. The retreat for the 6-7th grade boys continued with team building games led by Father Skully Knight and Matt Holt.
