A Welcomed Find

A large, circular wood sign, dating to the early 1960s, was a welcomed find in storage at St. Mary’s Dominican High School. Dominican President Dr. Cynthia Thomas and DHS 1963 alumna Jamie Manders, DDS , hold the sign that will be in the Aquinas Hall foyer. Manders was among the students who painted the sign. “I knew then it would be a part of Dominican’s history and would be there forever, and I was a part of it,” recalled a smiling Manders. On the back of the sign are signatures and dates from students in classes ranging from 1960 to 1975.
