I was an ex alumni almost 30 years ago.I always will remembering the Schoil for sister Kathleen, the values and exemptions teachings she gave me.Her wisdom was also an exclusive part of the way she corrected me. She was very strict but had the most special heart. St. Hugh Catholic School taught me great faith and we lived it with our daily mass, there at different points in time taught me to love and be a merciful person.To never hate our neighbor but instead to pardon. It also brought life the greatest treasure ,my lifetime best friend whom with we are united by a very special bond.God.., loyalty and love.We are friends and sisters at the same time.Thats why I would always recommend St. HUGH CATHOLIC SCHOOL.. THANK YOU SISTER KATHLEEN FOR ALL YOUR DEDICATION. AND LOVE MAy you rest in peace.. I
