Mrs. Spinner has spent extensive time with members of the Marianist Province of the United States, and studying Marianist History and Spirituality.

"At St. Vincent - St. Mary High School, we are focused on faith, community, and family spirit. This is a wonderful place where everyone belongs to one big family--The Irish Family!"
