Welcome from Our Student Council President, LIZA Brown

Hello Villa Duchesne Community! Let me begin by saying how honored I am to be Student Council President for such a wonderful community. I am forever grateful to Villa for providing me with this opportunity to grow as a leader, as a strong young woman, and as an individual readily prepared to prosper in life beyond high school. 

Student Council is just one opportunity for leadership among many offered at Villa. From house captains to club leaders to retreat leaders to athletic team captains to student council class representatives, I have seen my classmates thrive in the various leadership roles they have found at Villa. These many opportunities for leadership require responsibility and dedication, and thus, create graduates ever-prepared to blossom in college and beyond.

Beyond cultivating skills of commitment and building community, Villa students learn how to balance a little fun and sisterhood with academic and extracurricular responsibilities. From big days like Congé and Field day, to everyday fun like outdoor classes or dance parties in the common rooms, Villa girls have constant reminders that school is about so much more than just books and pens.

As I said in my student council speech last May, we are Villa students for a short time, but Villa girls forever. As my class enters our final year of school at Villa, we cherish our friendships, we value the academic excellence and the lessons of faith, and we reflect on our incredible experiences as Villa students. We are so excited to spreading this knowledge to others and welcome new students to Villa! I am so fortunate to leave the castle as your 2022-2023 Student Council President and I wish all of the best for what is to come of Villa when my class has left these special halls!
