SLUH's INSIGNIS podcast features lively interviews with members of our school community engaged in a variety of roles and fascinating projects "down the hall, across the metro area and around the world" in support of our mission.

Finding a Voice

Our new INSIGNIS podcast explores issues of authenticity, creativity and diversity in the context of high school education and formation. Among the questions we consider: How can we encourage and support young people (as well the adults who work with them) to find their own voices? You'll hear from: Mrs. Addie Akin and the SLUH Chorus; Dan Cornell '94, a national leader and entrepreneur in software security; Daniel Heard '04, a PhD statistician and risk analyst for USAA and recent speaker at our Black History Month assembly; Senior and Presidential Leadership Award winner Antwine Wills '19; and SLUH Director of Equity and Inclusion, Frank Kovarik '94. This show also features original music by Ramon Ortiz '20 and a reading from a recent essay in Sisyphus by Matt Friedrichs '20.
