Two St. Mary's religious educators have agreed to serve as honorary chairs of the 2000-01 Annual Appeal campaign for St. Mary's Parish and Schools. Srs. Donna Determan and Josita Zieser, P.B.V.M., longtime St. Mary's educators will lead the campaign.
The St. Mary's Annual Appeal is sponsored by the St. Mary's Alumni Association which is celebrating their 10th anniversary this year.
The honorary chairs have served a combined 27 years at St. Mary's Schools. Sr. Determan currently teaches second grade at St. Mary's Schools. She originally taught at St. Mary's for six years in the early 1980s. Now, in her second visit to Storm Lake, she is in her tenth consecutive year at St. Mary's.
Sr. Zieser is St. Mary's 5-12 art educator, serving in her eleventh consecutive year at St. Mary's.
"We truly appreciate our sisters agreeing to head the campaign this year. It's wonderful to be able to honor Sr. Donna and Sr. Josita by having them chair the appeal," said St. Mary's Alumni Association co-president Tony Bedel.
