Gayle Benson Visits the Academy

Academy of Our Lady welcomed Mrs. Gayle Benson, owner of the New Orleans Saints and the New Orleans Pelicans to the school.

Mrs. Benson shared her personal journey as a Catholic, a student, a professional, a business owner, and a married woman.  She challenged the students to remain faithful to the values learned at the school and to allow God to work in their lives so as to discern his plan for them.

The audience was happy to know that Mrs. Benson grew up in Algiers on the Westbank, and attended Holy Name of Mary school—the school some of the students themselves attended.  At the end of her presentation, Mrs. Benson took questions from the students.

Sr. Michelle Geiger, Principal, introduces Mrs. Benson to the student body.
