Amanda Stitt - 2009

After graduating from Our Lady of Victory in 2009, I attended St. Pius X Catholic High School where I played varsity volleyball and competed in two state championships, won three region titles, and broke both a school and state record.  After graduating from St. Pius in 2013, my horse, Winnie, and I were headed to Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC) where I studied agriculture and Winnie enjoyed the on-campus barn.  While at ABAC I had the opportunity to get involved both on campus and in the community.  I served as captain of the ABAC National Agri-Marketing Association team and vice-president of the ABAC Ag Business Club.  I also served as scholarship chair, agriculture chair, and two terms as president of my sorority, Sigma Alpha. I was in the ABAC honors program, served as treasurer, vice president, and president of the ABAC Horsemen's Association, was the student representative on the ABAC Curriculum Committee, and tutored on campus.  I was involved with the ABAC Office of Advancement, worked as a student teacher, and wrote for the school newspaper.  I loved staying involved in the community and volunteered with the Tifton Garden Club, taught "Ag in the Classroom" in the Tift County elementary schools, and coached the Tift County High School volleyball team. During my ABAC career, I was awarded the Ag Business discipline award, and the Larry D. Allen Leadership Award. Upon graduating from ABAC in 2017 with my B.S. in Agriculture, I was awarded the ABAC Alumni Association award which is presented to the top bachelors degree recipient.  I was offered a fellowship from Auburn University to pursue my M.S. in Rural Sociology.  I am currently finishing my thesis and will graduate in May 2019.   After graduation, I plan to start my own farm, get involved teaching agriculture to local schools, and pursue a career in which I am able to be an advocate for both farmers and those living in rural America.  I am engaged to my high school sweetheart and we will be married in October 2019 (with bridesmaids who were in my Kindergarten my class at OLV).  I am so thankful for the education I received at Our Lady of Victory for it provided me with a strong foundation in academics and faith that has enabled me to pursue my dreams.  I was not only extremely well prepared for my honors and AP classes at St. Pius, but I had a strong faith and education that helped me be successful in college.

 

 

 

Natalie Main - 2013

OLV-Alum

Hi, my name is Natalie Main, and I became part of the OLV family in 2004 when I started kindergarten. My brothers, Wil and Ryan currently attend OLV.  While I graduated from OLV in 2013, and now attend Our Lady of Mercy as a sophomore, OLV is where I discovered my love of theatre.  I have fun memories of my first role at OLV in the production of Alice in Wonderland.  I also had the opportunity to be cast as the witch in Into the Woods. I am forever grateful to Mrs. Jones, the theatre director, for her mentoring and encouragement. I also am very involved with theatre at Our Lady of Mercy, and the local Legacy Theatre. I was fortunate to be cast in Nuncrackers as one of the students of Mount St. Helen’s School.  I really enjoyed acting in a main stage production with professionals.  Also, I have been active with Girl Scouts, and I have obtained the Bronze and Silver Awards, and am currently working on my Gold Award, the highest award in Girl Scouts. 

As an OLV student, I was honored as the recipient of the 2013 Chi-Rho Award from St. Pius X High School, which is presented to eighth-graders who, in the judgment of the faculty, possess qualities of faith, determination, caring and integrity.  Additionally, in 2013 while attending OLV, I was awarded the Salve Regina Scholarship to attend Our Lady of Mercy. 

In my free time, I love reading, going to the theatre, scuba diving, swimming, paddle boarding, water & snow skiing, dancing, and traveling.  As I reflect on my experience at OLV, I am grateful for the encouragement, faith and inspiration that prepared me for high school.  Our Lady of Victory, pray for us.     Go Patriots! 

 

Olivia Roche - 2011

OLV-Alum

Hello! My name is Olivia Roche. I am an alumni of both Our Lady of Victory and Our Lady of Mercy. Since my days at victory I have gone on to graduate from Mercy in 2011 and have continued my education at Georgia Institute of Technology where I study applied mathematics.  
Aside from my studies I have continued my dancing aspirations which began in my victory days.  This past December I competed in the Regional Championships and qualified for the World Championships held in Montreal this coming April.  

I have also taken part in several other major competitions including The North American National Championships, the Southern Regional Championships, the All Ireland National Championships and the World Championships. I am excited to continue my dance career by moving away from competitive dancing and into professional performing.  I hope to attend several training camps this summer to help the transition into this new phase including the Riverdance academy hosted in Dublin, Ireland.  

My current goals include finishing school, successfully auditioning for a professional show such as Riverdance or Lord of the Dance, traveling on tour with a professional company and becoming a certified Irish dance instructor (TCRG).
