The Academy of Our Lady of Guam participated in the University of Guam Chemistry Titration Competition on March 11, 2014 held at UOG. Two teams from the school, under the guidance of their Chemistry teacher, Mrs. Yvette Camisura, competed for the first time in this annual event. Senior Christine Kim won first place in the individual competitor award.
The Academy of Our Lady of Guam Class of 2015, donned with pink, orange, and yellow Gerbera daisies, ended their penultimate school year with a Mass of Thanksgiving and the annual Junior Ring Ceremony on May 23, 2014 in the Dulce Nombre de Maria Cathedral-Basilica. The class rings were blessed by Father Michael Jucutan and presented to the Class of 2015 by the school’s president, Sister Francis Jerome Cruz, RSM, (AOLG President) and Mrs. Mary Meeks (AOLG Principal).
The Junior Ring Ceremony has been a long-standing tradition of the Academy. According to Lourdes Babauta, Dean of Admissions at the Academy, “Traditions play an important roll in forming how one perceives oneself and the community to which one belongs.” The Junior Ring Ceremony symbolizes a rite of passage for the Class of 2015 – a passage that begins their senior journey, the last stretch of high school. “The class ring is a symbol of commitment,” says Babauta. “It represents the covenant between the school and the students.”
