WELCOME FROM OUR UPPER SCHOOL STUDENT COUNCIL PRESIDENT, COLLEEN MCKILLIP '24
Hello, Villa Duchesne Community! Let me start by saying how grateful and excited I am to be the Upper School Student Council President this year. I value the opportunity to grow as a leader at such a wonderful school.
Villa offers so many ways to get involved in leadership roles such as house captains, maison leaders, club leaders, retreat leaders, student council class representatives, and athletic team captains. I encourage our students to take advantage of these opportunities as they build connections and relationships at Villa. Getting involved helps us develop our skills in self-advocacy, and shows our universal commitment to making Villa the best possible Sacred Heart community. Please share your gifts and talents with Villa in some way!
Villa has many traditions, old and new, that we share with decades of Villa students who have gone before us. Being a part of these traditions with our friends and classmates bring our community closer together. We have old favorites like Congé and Goûter, and newer traditions like the fall pep rally and Phily Week. At Villa, the student experience is unmatched. I can't wait to help to introduce our newest students to our Villa traditions.
As my class enters our final year at Villa, we will cherish our friendships and memories, we are focused on academic excellence, we are strong in our faith, and we want to reflect on our transformational experience as Villa students and support every student in sharing in that experience as well. We are so excited to welcome you! I cannot wait to bring positive energy to such an amazing student body. I am so fortunate to be your 2023-24 Student Council President and I wish all the best for what is to come at Villa!
