I’m recalling weighing our options for a Catholic education and then receiving five different hand written letters from students encouraging our girls to come to Owensboro Catholic. Ever so many people reached out to sing OC’s praises. Our girls have flourished in the OC environment. They felt accepted and loved from day one and have made friendships that will see them through life. Thank you Owensboro Catholic. You have provided our daughters an environment where they can thrive and excel academically, athletically, socially and spiritually.
