If you grew up in South Boston, you may have had Sister Evelyn as a teacher for first grade at St. Brigid School. She taught for decades and eventually retired to Kentucky a few years back. Well, Southie native Bobby Higgins stumbled upon this photo of Sister getting her COVID-19 vaccine on twitter! According to Gov. Andy Beshear, she is oldest living Kentuckian to be vaccinated!
Sister Evelyn Hurley, a sister of @scnfamily, is believed to be the oldest Kentuckian to be vaccinated at age 105. Congratulations Sister Hurley! We are so happy you received a #ShotofHope. pic.twitter.com/8nD0jgze84

Back in 2018, Sister Eveyln delivered an inspiring invocational prayer at the Boston City Council meeting. She felt right at home given her father served on the City Council and was Council President from 1949-1955. She was joined by her former students, City Councilor at-Large Michael Flaherty, Kelly Donovan and Paul McCormack.
(Editor’s Note: I had Sr. Evelyn in First Grade and Michael Flaherty was my classmate.)
