  1. Unfortunately, whenever I put students of St. Mary’s Academy on our blog, we do not get responses from alumni or family members. You are only the second person to do so. I have this class photo with your mother in it. If you do not have it, I will scan and send it to your email. Just let me know.

    • My mother was a Freshman in 1937, if you have her Freshman class I would like you to scan it and send it to my email. I graduated from SMA in 1973.

  2. I see my mother in law Verna Lainez (Turner), and her sister Theresa Lainez (Brown), listed in the Freshman Class of SMA ’37. Our family would love to see/have the class photo. I graduated from SMA in ’75.
    Thanks for your research and web site. I enjoy reading it.

  3. Hi there! Do you have a photo of Stella Chargois? She is my grandmother and is still alive. I showed this site to her and we are both eagerly anticipating a photo of her. She also had a sister by the name of Shirley Chargois, not in the same class though. Looking forward to hearing from you.

  4. Tonisha, I’m happy to inform you that I did find a photo of your grandmother, Stella Chargois, in the 1937 yearbook of St. Mary’s Academy. I will scan and send it to your email. You have such a pretty grandmother !!

  5. My mother and aunt are listed as freshmen students in 1937.
    Verna Lainez and Theresa Lainez
    Having a copy of this picture (s) would be priceless.

    Thank you in advance!

    God Bless and thank you for posting,

    Catherin Cobette

  6. I see my mother and aunt are listed in St Mary’s 1937 Freshman class. Their names are Verna Lainez (Turner), and her sister Theresa Lainez (Brown), Would it be possible to obtain an individual or the class photo.?
    Thanks for your time and for this web site.

  7. Hi McLane, Please check out the new post that just went up today. You will find Melva Parker in the Sophomore Class photo.
