The Call to Serve
Christian Conte, Editor-in-Chief • November 13, 2020
At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, nurses from across the country, including 75 from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, flocked to New York City, the epicenter of the virus then. Pappas was one of those nurses. Usually a nurse at CHOA when not working at Marist, she has served on the hospital’s Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Unit for the past six years, where she “care[s] for kids,” newborns to age 21, “with leukemia, solid tumors, brain tumors, or sickle cell anemia.”

While the years of successful seasons are due to the diligence of the coaches, the runners display grit and passion that anyone can admire. Most seniors on the team have been a part of this tight-knit community since freshman year. The journey from a timid 9th grader to a confident senior is one seen across many sports here at Marist.

Why War Eagles Wear Masks
Christian Conte, Editor-in-Chief • October 1, 2020
With such a timely entrance, our Marist Way theme for this school year is Ardent Love of Neighbor. One of the simplest ways to practice this daily is by wearing a mask. Because no matter how stylish you look with your mask, we do not wear a mask for ourselves; we wear it for others.
