Letter from the Editor
Every year at St. Thomas is different. While the senior class gears up to graduate and take the next step after St. Thomas, an entirely new group of Tommies are
welcomed in the fall. With new and returning faces combined, a fresh dynamic is created
each year. New ideas and developments become additions to St. Thomas’ foundation
rooted in tradition. The Aquinas Yearbook captures and celebrates the diverse variety of
events and individuals that make up the St. Thomas community.
I am thankful for our driven section editors, photographers and art director who cover
events every week to create a well-rounded publication. They are an essential part of the
creation of the yearbook, attending events and writing stories that positively reflect the
year on campus.
I would also like to thank our advisor, Kim Rueb, whose admirable leadership inspires
staff members to be reliable and thorough in their work. Her organization and creativity
are motivation to produce a comprehensive yearbook that we are proud to share. In
addition, thank you to Steve Ward of David Bank Studios and the photographers with
I hope you enjoy the collection of this year’s memories and share it with those you
love. I hope you find that the yearbook has effectively captured the year on campus and
the ever-changing St. Thomas environment.
