Despite ten-feet of water and being located in the vitual ghost-town neighborhood of Lakeview, Mt. Carmel Academy opened it's doors at 7:50 a.m. this morning. Mt. Carmel is an all-girl Catholic high school that's been existance for 110 years and by the grace of God, will be in existence for another 100 years.
Apparently a lot of Guardsment spent some time in Catholic schools.
I managed to drive to New Orleans and get past the National Guardsmen -- you know, that old 'the good sister needs to see her convent' routine still works -- so I could see our school."
Sister Camille Anne Campbell deserves kudos for determination and hard-headedness for reviving another New Orleans institution.
