Jane Kelleher, farthest left on the front row, was one of 10 Bishop Dunne students and four teacher chaperons who traveled to Honduras for a Mission Trip this summer to build a prayer chapel in a poor church. The 10 day trip was a part of the excellent education Jane says she's received from Bishop Dunne. Jane came to Dunne in the 8th grade and now is at the top of her senior class.

Jane Tunde Kelleher is currently ranked #1 in her senior class, and says she will work hard to stay there.
She is looking forward to her final year at Bishop Dunne. As president of the National Honor Society, she’ll be leading her club to service sites throughout the metroplex, from the North Texas Food Bank to the Salvation Army, in addition to tutoring younger students at St. Cecilia’s Catholic School.
Jane will also be playing her French horn while marching with the Falcon band at all the football games this season, happy to cheer on the state champions from 2014. Her favorite game was when Bishop Lynch played Bishop Dunne at home last year. Last year was the second in a row that the Falcons beat the Friars, much to Jane’s delight.
A varsity tennis player, she prefers to play singles and is excited about the new coach, whose goal is to get the team to state.
She is also vice president of the Law Club on campus, where members discuss recent laws passed and pending that can affect them as teenagers and as adults when they reach the legal age of 18. And Jane is also a member of the student council, as a senior class representative.
Jane has been a student ambassador since her freshman year, after she graduated as the 8th grade Valedictorian of Bishop Dunne’s middle school, earning the Bishop’s Scholar award. Three years and eight AP tests later, Jane has earned mostly 5s on her tests, which means the colleges she applies to will give her course credit when she begins her university career. She attributes her good scores to her encouraging parents and the excellent teachers at Bishop Dunne.

To meet Jane and more students like her and learn more about Bishop Dunne, you can attend the 15th Annual Bishop Dunne 100 Dinner on October 22, 2015. Funds raised go to tuition assistance to help the next 100 students attend the school. for more information, see the school's website at or contact Mary Gracheck at
