This 43-year-old is a business professional; mother of 2 and the driving force behind the historic move to the new Colonial MarketPlace in Ladue.
Candace Williams is a 43-year-old mother of two who is a financial advisor for Morgan Stanley and in her spare time is president of the St. Louis Woman’s Exchange. That kind of lineup hardly leaves time for breathing. “My husband (Clint) and I both work as financial advisors at Morgan Stanley Financial Services; we work it 24/7,” she said with a laugh. “We are business partners and life partners,” she said. Her 13-year-old son goes to John Burroughs and 10-year-old son attends Reed School in the Ladue School District. She has a deep fondness for her hometown of New Orleans, and tries to get back there often. These days, Williams has guided the St, Louis Woman’s Exchange through unchartered waters as they make the big, bold move into the …

Ladue runs all over Summit 59-43 for 15th win of the season.
There’s a very good reason why Reed School fourth grade teacher Karla Rigdon skipped grading papers and spent the evening cheering for the Ladue High Rams’ basketball team. A real simple reason for certain. Seems that star guard senior Kate Holloway is a Cadet teacher in her class. Ladue seniors get a chance to go into the classroom to see if a future in teaching might suit them. Frankly, Holloway adores her grade schoolers quite a bit. She put on the chalk board a schedule of home games in the new year. The students voted to attend Monday night’s game with the Summit Falcons. Armed with Skittles, ropes, Twix, Laughy Taffy, bags of popcorn and canned soda, 15 fourth graders sat in the front rows of the bleachers and cheered heartily for No…

Everyone in the Ladue Elementary School is geared for the Rally Squirrel.
There are some 475 children in Reed School in Ladue. From Kindergarten to fifth grade, all of the students are excited about the Cardinals' prospects in the playoffs versus Milwaukee. These kids are partial to Tordy and the Rally Squirrel. Principal Dr. Chris Schreiner, was decked out in his own Cardinals game shirt. Most of the kids came dressed in Cardinal Red from head to toe. Patch wandered into the classrooms of Jenna Regnier, Kindergarten and Abby Imming fourth grade to take the pulse of the students. And of course, they had plenty to say about their hero the squirrel and to name their favorite Cardinal players. Hear from the students themselves in Kindergarten and the fourth grade.
