Legacy student: Meet Maryam A. '24
Maryam A., a junior, is the eighth member of her family to attend St. Catharine Academy.
"All seven of my aunts attended SCA. This really limited my high school options,” she says with a laugh. "However, I’m glad it did, as I became fond of SCA."
Maryam is a member of the BETA Club, which has earned the National BETA Award "School of Distinction" 2021 and 2022. Maryam says she was excited the team was recognized with this Distinction but not surprised. "We put in a lot of effort and worked together as a team to get the work done with the help of Ms Petrignani, I feel as though our team sort of deserves it."
On the APP team, Maryam says she likes working on trying to figure out solutions in the real world. The team has been working on a Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Project and won the DEP Award for App Design in Conservation and Water Usage.
"St. Catharine's really impacted my life. My teachers are influential. I became more focused on my work. SCA helped me build my self-esteem."
