Mount St. Mary Academy Advanced Placement U.S. History students (APUSH), under the direction of MSM Social Studies Teacher Rachel McLemore, honored the victims of the Parkland school shooting with a student-led prayer service on Wednesday, March 14, the one-month anniversary of the tragic event. Along with members of MSM Student Council, the students planned and presented a vigil to the student body during an all-school program where they shared memories of each of the students and faculty members killed in the school shooting on February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Mount St. Mary Academy students, faculty and staff also observed a moment of silence at 10 a.m. and were invited to stand for 17 minutes in solidarity with the Parkland students.
