St. James Art Teacher Catherine Russell worked with St. Joseph’s Academy sewing teacher, Amy Neck, to design and create a costume for the BUST Breast Cancer Fashion Show last month. Both teachers worked together to honor teacher and cancer survivor Joy Lonibos from St. Alphonsus Catholic School with their design.  

Catherine explained, “After meeting Joy, it was clear to me that her costume should mirror her experience with cancer, so it was entitled ‘Battle with Grace,’ which she embodies.  It was a great experience to meet such wonderful people while raising money for a great cause, and also having a ball!” The money raised in the fundraiser was used to help provide cancer services to those in need.
