St. Julie’s legacy lives on in St. Lucy School students

In 1953, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur founded St. Lucy School in Campbell, and served there for 37 years. Recently, the faculty and students hosted Sisters at a lovely celebration.

“The principal wants to instill St. Julie’s spirit in the children, so she had this special Thankgiving mass,” says Sr. Ann Carmel Badalamente, who served as principal of St. Lucy School for six years. “I felt wonderful that they honored us. The lay teachers have been so loyal to the school. Sue Grover is the principal now; I hired her to teach the second grade, so she grew up in the school and became principal. Isn’t that great?”
