Student voting

The Carrie Chapman Catt Award is named after the Iowan who was a national leader in the women’s suffrage movement. Storm Lake St. Mary High School received this award because 90 percent of their eligible students registered to vote.  This award honors Catt’s commitment to gaining women’s suffrage for an entirely new generation of Americans to lawfully participate in the electoral process. 

St. Mary’s high school social studies teacher, Mrs. Swanson states, "While I have always explained the importance of voter registration to our seniors, I appreciated the encouragement by the office of Iowa's Secretary of State to actually facilitate registration in school with both our seniors and eligible juniors.  I believe the sooner we have teenagers considering their role in this important civic duty, the greater the likelihood they will act on it within their communities."

St. Mary’s Catholic School has a long-standing history of affordable, high-quality, faith-based, and family-centered education that stretches over one hundred years. Consider the difference St. Mary’s School could make for your child and call 732-3110 today to learn more or to join the family.
