May Student News

5/3/2017
We’re always excited to hear what our students are up to!

Here are some accomplishments shared by our students.

Lauren Asher ’20 organized a team of primarily 70 freshmen to attend and support Relay for Life in Plano/Richardson. Students spent time with cancer survivors and their families as well as supported those who have lost loved ones to the disease.

They also sold homemade baked goods to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

Hannah Ni'Shuilleabhain ’17 was named the Youth Volunteer of the Year at the Junior League of Collin County’s Excellence in Volunteer Service Awards Luncheon.

The annual luncheon recognizes non-profits and individuals who have impacted lives in Collin County. Recipients are chosen by members of the Junior League Community Advisory Board.

Shreya Jain ’19 won second place at the Environmental Summit in Dallas. She focused on ways to turn river water and other contaminated water sources into drinkable water.
 
Shreya researched Brita filters and learned how activated carbon acts as a chelator to trap impurities. She found the same properties of chelation in botanical herbs, like cilantro.

This year’s theme was Water Conservation: Making a Difference.

“I’m determined to continue my quest for clean drinking water and create a sustainable project for third world countries, so they don't have to depend on anyone,” said Jain, who earned a grant through the EEI Summit. “They can grow the herbs, and follow the protocol to purify their water.”

Shreya recently met people affected by the water contamination in Flint, Michigan. She is now working on collaborating with scientist Dr. Edward.

Emily Musso ’18 was first runner-up in the City of Dallas Water Utilities' 33rd Annual Drinking Water Week Poster Contest. She participated in the digital media division, which included students from ninth-12th grade.

“I took my picture in my parents’ kitchen,” said Musso, who will take Photo II next year. “I thought it would be cool to see the water flowing in the picture.”

The contest included 14 winners among multiple divisions and 1,000 total entries.
 
Nicole Adams ’17, Kate Patrick ’17, and Logan Jobe ’17 each received the Alumnae Panhellenic Association Scholarship. Ursuline students received three of the nine scholarships offered.

Kate Janson ’20
earned the most philanthropy service hours in the 2020 Class of the National Charity League's Addison Chapter. Kate served 64 hours from April 1, 2016-March 31, 2017. Most of her hours were served at West Dallas Community School and Ronald McDonald House.

Kate has been a member of National Charity League since April 2014.

Congratulations to Mackenzie Arcemont ’17 for making the 2017-2018 Baylor University Cheer Squad.
