Omaha Women’s March
Fighting for all rights Sisters Naomi ’21 and Lydia Delkamiller ’19, attended the march with their patriotic sign. Naomi attended the Women’s March in Washington D.C. in 2017, but left her sign in front of the White House. For the local march, she recreated the same sign, fighting for rights of all kinds.
An all-day affair As members of Student government, Katie Corpuz and Amelia Zimmerman ’21 started their day at Marian at 9 a.m. setting up for Winter Formal. Once every star was hung and every sparkle was in place, the girls attended the Women’s March together in downtown Omaha. At 7:30 p.m., Corpuz and Zimmerman returned to Marian to work Winter Formal; they ran heels, clutches and coats to assigned lockers.
Silence speaks volumes Zoe Zier ’19 proudly displayed her homemade sign for the march. Marian girls joined more than 8,000 women, men and children of all ages who gathered for the “March on the Polls 2018.” This event marked the one-year-anniversary of the inauguration of Donald Trump as President of the United States. “This march helped me speak up for what I believed in. We, as women, won’t sit down and stay quiet anymore,” Zier said.
Girls 4 Girls Club in action Maria Piperis and Lily Blake ’19 marched in the streets of downtown Omaha with their homemade signs. They made posters after school on Jan. 19 with Girls 4 Girls Club members.
Starry night Herds of Marian sophomores, juniors and seniors, along with their dates, danced under the starry lights of the west gym. A few dedicated students danced from 8:30 p.m. until the clock struck 11:30 p.m.
Girl power DJ LayC, who also provided dance tunes for the Color Walk-a-Thon Dance Party back in September, was the perfect fit for a Marian dance. She is the first female DJ that Marian has hired for dances and other events, breaking the male-DJ stereotype.
