ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– Remembering young lives cut too short. Students of three catholic schools came together to honor three friends who died this school year.

The program displays the words remembrance and hope. That was the goal of singing choirs from Desmet and Rosati Kain along with the St. Mary’s media department in their free concert, to celebrate and remember the lives of three members of each school’s community lost this last winter.

The free concert was put together to remember Tom Horan of Desmet High School, Stephen Moeller from St. Mary’s, and Robbie McGartland, a graduate of Chaminade, whose sister sings in the Rosati Kain voices.

Many members of the Desmet black robes singing group knew Tom Horan well from their time in the Desmet theater department together.

And media student from St. Mary’s have put together a slide show tribute to all three young men that will be played at the end of the program.

The concert was free, but collections were taken to raise money for three different charities selected by the three families of the young men honored tonight.

The students sang with heavy hearts tonight, but were happy that they could use the gift of song to express themselves during such a difficult time.

The Sheldon Theater was a packed house tonight.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.
