Dominican Salutes Service Years 5 to 55

St. Mary’s Dominican High School honored faculty and staff for service years ranging from five to 55 years.  Sr. M. Dominic Savio Estorge, O.P., recognized for 55 years of service, has a distinguished tenure that included faculty, administrative, and leadership positions. Sr. Savio also taught English, served as assistant principal, and was president from 1994 to 1997. For 12 years, she served on the General Counsel for the Dominican Sisters of St. Mary. Currently, she is cataloging the school’s archives while continuing her work in the Attendance Office.

Asked about her years of service, she replied with a smile, “One does not come to work for 55 years unless it is a good place to be.”
