Your Real Champions for the week of August 15, 2021, were Sister Constance Touey, IHM and Sister Jeannette Lucey, IHM!

Sister Constance and Sister Jeannette are nuns who spent 31 years at St Francis de Sales School in Philadelphia. They came in 1984 when the school was in disrepair and many students were refugees from around the world.  Armed with great teaching skills, structure, and love, they transformed the failing school into a model of academic excellence.  This past Spring, they spent several weeks working at the Southern border helping to care for unaccompanied boys ages 13-17 and refugee families. In their round trip, they logged over 14, 500 miles. These incredible women are both over 80 years old!

Each week we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community. Know someone who should be featured? Nominate them now!
