During Three Kings, three young princesses MacKenzie Pardo Colquhoun, Eleanor and Vivienne Schultz helped inspire support for our Fleur-de-Lis Fund.  They loved their Pauline Dolls which their respective grandmothers Jing P. Doran and Patsy Santiago Schultz had Santa bring over to them on Christmas Day!  Because of the perfect joy in their eyes and happy smiles, other young girls and young at heart Paulinians were able to enjoy Pauline - bearing gifts of education, music therapy and civic engagement for students and community through SPMA USA Fleur-de-Lis Fund.  Kenzie, Ellie and Vivi are our wonderful stars bringing Pauline’s blessings and light to students, children and families and St. Paul!
