OLA’s Third Annual Day of Service was featured in the October 24, 2013, edition of the Georgia Bulletin.
OLA principal Lisa Cordell said, “It is exciting to see students actively engaged in helping others in our greater community.”
Bennie Smith, vice principal, noted that service is part of the school’s foundation because of the Sisters of Mercy, who staffed the school in its beginning. She said, “These nuns are unique because they take a fourth vow of service. This vow of service is at the core of our school. The Day of Service makes us aware of our heritage.”
