Alumna Builds Successful Career Helping to Train, Coach Others

Elenor Barnes '78 was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Her father, William Jr., was an Industrial Arts Teacher at Boys Technology and Trade School and her Mother, Ernestine, was a stay-at-home mom. The youngest of five children and the only girl, Barnes grew up in a low-income household. Despite this, Barnes never actually knew that the family had such challenges. She attributes this to the profound love that she felt at home from her parents.

Greetings SJA Families and Friends,

As you know, today, students all over the country will "walk-out" of school in "protest" of school shootings...and to try to activate change among our political leaders in order to take measures that will keep them safe in schools. At St. Joan Antida High School, we will not wade into the debate between a student's 1st Amendment rights to protest or another person's 2nd Amendment rights to own a gun. Instead, we choose to empower our students to participate in today's national movement, and to prayerfully remember the victims of school shootings and gun violence everywhere. We will pray for peace in our community and love for our fellow human beings.

Portia Young began telling stories as a young girl in her native Detroit. In fact, her second-grade teacher at Gesu Elementary Catholic School in Detroit, first noticed her writing ability and encouraged Portia to keep it up, by posting her tales on the wall in the hallway. She continued her Catholic education at one of metro Detroit's premiere college-preparatory high schools for girls: Mercy High School in Farmington, Hills.
