This past weekend, one week before Saint Patrick’s Day, Jersey City celebrated – hosting a Saint Patrick’s Day Award Dinner and Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. This long standing Jersey City tradition was made extra special for all of us at Saint Dominic Academy this year, as sophomore Megan Dunne was named Miss Colleen. Megan, a 10th grade Honors student at SDA, also plays varsity soccer, basketball and runs outdoor track. She was recently named to First Team All County Soccer and was one of the top 75 Freshman Soccer Players in the State of NJ last year. NJ.com featured her this year as Player of the Week for soccer as well. Megan, who works diligently both in her classes and on the playing field, also shares her voice with Saint Dominic Academy, singing as a Domino in our world renowned Glee Club.
On Sunday, Megan was joined on her float by members of the Glee Club/Dominoes and the SDA Soccer team as we celebrated this honor and recognition for one of our most talented young ladies. Her duties as Miss Colleen did not end when the parade route reached Journal Square; Megan will participate in the Detective Michael SASniago JCPD Memorial Walk Wreath Laying and the JCPD Detective Marc A. DiNardo One Block Parade later in March.
Megan’s Saint Dominic Academy family is proud of this outstanding achievement and we ask all of our alumnae and friends to pray for Megan this month, as she serves as Jersey City’s Miss Colleen. May all of your March days be filled with laughter, love and a twinkle of Irish charm! Remember…everyone’s Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day!
