Royal receives first place in essay contest

Alicia Dofelmier '22 recently won first place at the branch level for her essay "The Bill of Rights and Me." In her essay, she wrote about the importance of Freedom of Speech, and how Rosary has helped her find her voice: "Today during class discussions I am encouraged to offer up my opinion about whatever we may be talking about, whether it’s in History or English class. Over and over again, I am reminded that I have a voice and that my voice matters." The Americanism Essay Contest, sponsored by the Fleet Reserve Association, promotes the spirit of Americanism and patriotism among our country's youth.
