The Academy of Advanced Studies welcomed 18 new students – 2 current students and 16 incoming freshmen - at the annual Induction Ceremony and Dinner on March 12. DB alum and St. Louis Circuit Attorney, Jennifer Joyce ’80, was the keynote speaker and senior Lauren Theirry gave an inspiring speech on leadership. The AAS provides a more rigorous course of academic study and enrichment opportunities. In May, the Academy will have its first graduation class since its establishment in 2012. Congrats, seniors! On Sunday, May 3, 2015, the Academy students will have end-of-year presentations beginning at 4pm in the Cafeteria.

The Academy of Advanced Studies students had the exciting opportunity to video-chat with DB alum and successful innovator, Jack Dorsey ’95, through a Google Hangout session in early March. Dorsey is well known for co-founding the social media network, Twitter, and for inventing the credit card processor, Square. The students prepared a thoughtful Q&A session inquiring about Dorsey’s time at DB, his inspiration for his innovations and his advice to students.  Dorsey said his favorite class at Bishop DuBourg was mechanical drawing, because he was given a lot of creative freedom to explore his talents and interests. He also played on the tennis team and was in the computer club while a student at DB. Students enjoyed Dorsey’s casual, witty responses. His advice to the students was to share their visions: if they’re passionate about something, to get it out and show it to people.

Dorsey’s parents, Marcia and Tim, also attended the “hangout.” Jack wasn’t shy about showing his mother affection through a video screen, blowing her a long-distance kiss at the end of the chat. After all, Dorsey said his mom is his favorite person to follow on Twitter.

The visit was also covered by the St. Louis Post Dispatch and the St. Louis Review.
