TMP caroling 2013By JOHN SIMMONDS

Local students took to their halls to spread some Christmas cheer.  Jeff Brull, Thomas More Prep-Marian Advancement Director, told Hays Post that every year the TMP Latin students sing carols in Latin throughout the school.  This year, Brull says, the tradition had a new twist.

International students, led by ESL teacher Stacy Lang, followed behind and sang carols in English.  Brull added some of the students don’t even celebrate Christmas but still took part in the caroling.  Brull quickly grabbed his camera to record what he calls a great TMP tradition.

“We’re happy to see these traditions carry on each year. Linda Braun, who retired in May after decades at the school, has been caroling with her Latin students every year. We’re pleased to see Kevin Nyberg uphold tradition,” Brull said. “Stacy Lang’s international ESL students added a welcome twist with their addition of traditional English carols as well. We’re blessed to be in a school where we can celebrate the seasons of Advent and Christmas.”
