“I am so excited to be named St. Michael’s student of the year. It is a huge honor, so I am extremely proud to represent my school in this way. Throughout my four years as a Warrior, I have grown in leadership and my focus is now on helping others. The intimate feeling around campus has allowed me to foster these skills, and being so involved with my school and my service has taught me the importance of time management.”
