UA for UA: Ursuline Academy for University of Alabama

The shirt Audrey Bernish and Lydia Morris designed to raise funds for the city of Tuscaloosa after the tornado.

Although the tornado in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, in April did not affect the girls of Ursuline Academy of Dallas directly, they mourned the loss of an alum and sympathized for the destruction of the city. “Many Ursuline students’ siblings attend the University of Alabama and were there for the tornado,” says rising senior Sarah Wunderlick.

In response to this horrific event, senior Audrey Bernish, whose sister attends the college, had shirts made to raise funds for the reconstruction of the city of Tuscaloosa. With the help of senior Lydia Morris, who drew the graphics for the shirt, Audrey wants to “help in any way [she] can to restore the city that is so important to my family.” The maroon shirts, which sold in a matter of days among the students, bear the slogan “Help Keep the Tide Rolling” and feature a design that Audrey came up with. Personally, I wear my shirt all the time and even have had people ask me where they can get one!
