Class of 2002, Alumna - written in 2011
My education at St. Mary's School has been invaluable to me! Not only did it prepare me educationally for success at Mercy High School, but it also set the foundation for a strong and deep appreciation of my Catholic faith. Now as a Catholic school teacher myself, I am honored to be able to share my faith with my own students. I owe so much to the administration, faculty and staff of St. Mary's. I feel very blessed and honored to call myself a graduate of such a wonderful school!
