Emma Trautfetter  🎓

"My favorite Mount memory is finding my best friend. We became friends as juniors with the exact same schedule, then became closer when we both did the Chinese Exchange Program. From laughing together at lunch to always being partners in AP Lit, now we do everything together and are each other's better half."


Breanna Munoz 🎓

Kate Cipoletti  🎓

"During my high school years, I am most proud of finding confidence within myself, and being proud of the person I am becoming. My favorite Mount memory is being part of a phenomenal medley relay with the swim team last year -- after transferring schools, the seniors made me feel welcomed in a heartbeat."


Jacqueline MacStudy 🎓

"My favorite Mount memory is meeting my best friend. Many times people think that you meet your best friends your Freshman year, but I met mine my Junior year. I had every class with her, and without the other one knowing, we both signed up to be a host family for our Chinese exchange students. We spent every second of every day together with our exchange students, and since then, we have become inseparable. So thank you, Mount, for my best friend!"


Emma Clifford  🎓

"What I am most proud of accomplishing during my high school years was our mission trip to the southern border where we were able to assist immigrants coming to the U.S. It is something that I am really passionate about, and I am so grateful that MSDA could help me accomplish it."

"What I am most proud of during my high school years are the friendships I made because I know that I can always rely on these people and these friendships will last a lifetime."


Madison McNany 🎓

"My favorite Mount memory is Mount Christmas. Everyone is so lively and everyone is so happy, you can’t help but feel cheerful yourself. My favorite memory is from this year’s Mount Christmas where my best friends and I played ping pong in the art room and then watched in the PAC as a live elf hunt was happening. I’m going to miss this and CAP memories with my friends so much."

Aaleyah Lawson 🎓

"Some of my favorite Mount memories are the car rides that I took with all my friends. Whether it's to get food (which it was, most of the time) or to just come along for the ride, I would hardly pass up the chance to drive around with my friends. We would have loud conversations, blast good music, yell at cars, (most likely) eat or drink whatever we bought with what little money we had, and just have a good time. I'm going to miss spontaneous car adventures with my friends, and I hope they continue while we're in college and for the rest of our lives."

"One of my favorite Mount memories is attending semi this year as a senior. It was so much fun just going with my friends and dancing all night long.

Madeline Bochis 🎓

"One of my favorite Mount memories is meeting up with all my friends in the Art Room during CAP.  We'd sit at the back tables and talk with Mrs. Cochran while eating her secret stash of snacks. Some days we would look at each other’s art but other days we'd just sit around laughing. There is never a dull moment with Mrs. Cochran. She never fails to make us smile or to listen in on our problems and give us advice. I'm truly going to miss her bright spirit and the memories I made with all of my friends."


Tess Lucanie 🎓

"I am most proud of the friendships I have made throughout my high school years. I am so lucky to have met all of the people I have in the Mount community, and I am excited to watch my classmates succeed in the future."


Julie Schramm 🎓

"A high school accomplishment that I am proud of is transferring to the Mount. I transferred to Mount mid-year during my sophomore year. While it wasn’t easy to pick up and start over again at a new school, I am glad I made the decision. I have met many amazing people here: friends who make me laugh, teachers who are passionate about what they do, and coaches who motivate us to rise to the occasion. I’m going to miss playing with my friends on the tennis team (go mount tennis!!!), making prints in photography (everyone needs to take Mrs. Stewart’s class!), and sitting with my class (THE Class of 2020) in the PAC. I know we are going to do great things and can’t wait to see where the future takes us! I’m grateful for a memorable 2.5 years at the Mount!"

Dominique Bevacqua 🎓

During my high school years, I am most proud of the bonds I have created. The Mount encompasses such a tight knit community, and I am so grateful to have met my lifelong friends.
