If you graduated from Notre Dame High School from 1971 through 1993, you also took Government. And if you took Government, odds are you took it from Sister Louanna.
And she remembers you. Your name is in her ledger, where she pauses, and where she prays for you.
Sister Louanna is every bit Chicago.
She graduated from Notre Dame High School, grew up in St. William’s Parish, can quote you White Sox stats better than a South Side bookie.
Sister Louanna, also, was born just eight years after women received the right to vote. Her mother could not vote. Many of those she loved dearly could not vote.
It’s why some of you, at her insistence, registered to vote while standing in her classroom.
