St. Catherine University wrapped up Shout Out St. Kate's Day, March 7, in style with a Katie Leaders Fashion Show at the Mall of America.

The show offered a fun way to showcase the breadth of leadership among alumnae — and talented students from the apparel, merchandising and design program.

The event also featured Toussaint Morrison, a hip-hop artist and three-time national slam poetry champion who brought the crowd to its feet. Morrison is from a "TripliKate" family: Carol Van Deusen SP'46 is his grandmother, Jane Van Deusen SP'91 is his mother and Annie-Louise Katherine Backman SP'11, MAOT'12 is his sister.
