Junior Among Top 3 in Midwest Holy Cross Associates Essay Contest

Chiara Bilant ’23 was recently notified that her essay, titled “My Holy Cross Transformation,” has been selected as a Top 3 Finalist in the Midwest Holy Cross Associates (MHCA) Reaching Out: Information, Formation & Transformation student contest. In her essay, Chiara shared the impact of her Holy Cross education:

"In all, Holy Cross education finds its roots in Christ and educates the mind and the heart by pushing students to strive intellectually as well as spiritually. Because we are taught when young, we will continue to mature while having the 'competence to see and the courage to act in creating a more humane and just society' (Gilmour Academy Mission Statement). With this, through information of the mind and formation of the heart, we are able to transform into constructive and active members of society, therefore making the world a better place for future generations."

Next, Chiara will present her essay at the Holy Cross Associates Conference on January 29 via Zoom. Any interested Gilmour community members are invited to join the Zoom call. You can access the registration via this flyer.
