She was a beloved teacher, advisor to the Student Council, and possessed joie de vivre beyond measure. Each year, the St. Mary's community gathers to honor the memory of French teacher Nanette Quinn.
In addition to teaching French, Quinn served as Student Council advisor. To honor her memory, StuCo sponsors the annual Nanette Quinn Gobbler 5K run/walk. Participants will enjoy a course that starts at the school, winds through the surrounding neighborhoods, and ends back at the school with a post-race celebration.
Funds raised benefit the Nanette Quinn Scholarship Fund — which helps girls attend St. Mary’s — and St. Jude Childrens' Research Hospital. Participants can walk or run the course, or sign up as a spirit runner. There’s also a 400 meter dash for children 10 and under.
