Lighting the Torch recounts the determination, passion for education and unswerving persistence for excellence shown by the founding Sisters of the College of Saint Benedict.
In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the college's founding in 1913, the current Haehn Museum exhibit portrays the story of key Sisters who gave rise to this splendor on the prairie during its first 50 years.
