 Thank you so much to the women who attended the
Annual Mind, Body, Spirit Breakfast on Friday, May 2nd,
and mentored our female Link scholars!
What an amazing morning!

Our young female scholars mixed and mingled with a group of women – about 70 guests in all – over breakfast and participated in three wonderful workshops designed to nurture and inform.

Nancy Laracy, legislative representative, National Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain and community advocate, Bunnies in Baskets, spoke about the importance of a healthy “Emotional Quotient,” to help navigate through life with less stress and conflict.  She stated that when you feel good about yourself, you can share more with others. She discussed her advocacy work, and introduced the audience to Muffin, a certified therapy bunny, who she takes to visit those who are chronically ill or grieving.

“The Tea Lady,”Sharon Levy, who is the CEO of Taking Tea in Style, taught the group about tea, not only about its properties, but also the feeling of well-being drinking tea can engender – a connection to nature, to the soul and a connection with people.  Guests and girls tasted three unusual and delicious teas with vastly different qualities: Oolong Orange Bouquet, Long Island Strawberry Bliss and Belgian Chocolate.

“Mental Health Matters” was an interactive workshop led by Tiffany Walker, Link Class of  ’03 and executive director of Pathways Toward Peace, a non-profit organization facilitating conversations about and spreading awareness of mental health. Link scholars and guests explored the reasons for anxiety. The conversation demonstrated the importance of discussing mental and emotional health openly to increase awareness, understanding, and acceptance.

In addition to the workshops, Sister Alice Uhl, O.P., and a former principal of Link, gave a rousing talk on the history of the school and the impact it has had over the years – a great lead into A Look at Link, the newest video about the school.

Thanks to our speakers and workshop leaders, our volunteers, our guests and
our girls for an amazing morning!
