Beyond the Numbers

Our students share a common committment to service and a dedication to learning, but there is no one way to define a Saint Mary's woman.  Many challenged themselves with AP and IB classes during high school.  Some served as team captains, yearbook editors, musicians, and class presidents.  Every member of the class of 2018 distinguished herself and used her gifts in her own way.  Here are a few examples:

  • Sang in London at the summer Olympics and in Rome for the Pope
  • Started a clothing drive for Youth for Christ, an organization for less fortunate students
  • Has written 5 books

  • Co-founded an organization that feeds needy children in their school districts on weekends
  • Raised money to build a health clinic in South Sudan
  • Survived a 2 1/2 story fall as a toddler, landing head first on a marble floor, with no lasting effects (her doctor called her a miracle!)
  • Published creative writing stories and poems on Teen Ink's website
  • VP of Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA)
  • Has a black belt in taekwondo
  • Was commissioned to paint a mural of the Circus of Maximus of Rome in her Latin classroom
