"I hold McAuley women to a different standard than most. We are considerate, confident, intelligent and talented. McAuley women are made of ambition and kindness. We are what occurs when determination meets compassion. I have known a McAuley girl to be able to do anything she sets her mind to. There are no limits to what we have accomplished at McAuley already, and that will continue into our future."
