    Kathryn's Bio:
    Hello! My name is Kathryn McCarrick. I grew up in Saint Paul as an only child. I am an Elementary Education major hoping to specialize in 4th, 5th or 6th grade. I chose CSS because of the vibrant and wholesome community that inspires me to be a better person every day. In my free time I hang out with friends, study and watch various Netflix comedy specials (Bo Burnham is an all-time favorite). On campus I am involved in inkeeping, where students can choose to stay with me in my dorm overnight, and the choral program.

Plight of the Edmund Fitzgerald

Last weekend was a very important weekend at Split Rock Lighthouse State Park which houses Split Rock lighthouse. Each year, there is a commemoration for the 29 lives lost upon the Edmund Fitzgerald on the 10th of November 1975. A year later a famous song was released about the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald. It sunk due to a late November storm on the lake and all lives aboard were lost.

In retrospect it is Minnesota’s own, Titanic-esque story. Later when it was found at the bottom of the Great Lake, the bell was taken and preserved. Each November 10th, Split Rock Lighthouse, which was decommissioned in 1969, is lit up once again after the bell of the Edmund Fitzgerald is rung 29 times to the reading of each name of a life lost aboard.

The ceremony is solemn and the lighthouse stands proud to shine a beacon for one night so any ship crossing can find their way across the lake, hopefully not in a November gale, once more.
