On Tuesday, January 10th, Tiffany Norwood LR '85 came to the Bishop McNamara High School campus to give a presentation to our students, faculty and staff. She gave information on her background with startup companies and fundraising, and focused on the importance of faith and having a dream. Tiffany encouraged our students to share their dreams with as many people as possible, and to use their faith to keep them focused on that dream to accomplish their goals. The students were moved by her presentation, and had many questions for Tiffany after the presentation concluded. For an album of pictures of the event, go to BMHS Facebook.
