As a teenager, Sr. Fran was asked by a local summer camp director to do calligraphy project for them. Sister also carved a circular wooden sign indented with a profile of a Native American. She loved the work! In college, Sister was required to engage with theater as part of her English major. She was assigned to staging, and learned how to design, paint and build stage sets. As an RDC novice, Sr. Fran was assigned to Good Counsel Academy High School, where she was mentored and prepared to teach art at Preston High School. Art remains an expression of her spirituality.
