This week has been a particularly memorable week for KDS, the St. Lawrence community, and those who were close to alumna Barbie Burgmeier '15. It was only just a few short months ago that Barbie's passing caused a great sadness in our hearts, but it feels like it was just yesterday that she was swinging on the porch swing laughing along with her sisters. On Thursday, March 3rd, we celebrated what would have been her 23rd birthday. This celebration was not confined to the walls of KDS, but was celebrated in many different cities by her friends and family as well.

We would like to give special thanks to Kathleen for helping us organize this service for Barbie, and for your guidance to all of us through this difficult time.
We would also like to give special thanks to Barbie's family for all that you have done to include and Kappa Delta Sigma in your thoughts and hearts.
Below is a video to tribute to Barbie's time at St. Lawrence created by Marisa Taro '16 that was played at today's service. Please share and watch as many times as you please!
