The academic/extracurricular accomplishments of our students as well as the professional and volunteer efforts of our Mount community were lauded and recognized on the evening of Monday, May 15, in Immaculate Conception Chapel during our annual Academy Awards Night.
Sister Lisa D. Gambacorto, RSM, Ed.S., Directress, said, "The honors given out tonight are mainly a result of two major characteristic traits -- determination and consistency. Thank you to all of our honorees for making this evening unique as we recognize with gratitude the academic, artistic, and service accomplishments of this school year."
