Candace Todd, Class of 2014, graduated Valedictorian from Our Lady of Mercy this past spring, where she received numerous honors including winning the AJC Cup and earning a National Merit Scholarship to Northwestern University, where she will attend this fall. She plans to major in Communication Sciences with a possible focus on Speech Pathology. Candace says that her favorite SJE memory was of morning assembly. “I still remember some of the stories and reflections Mrs. Vogtner shared that were profound then, but have taken on a new meaning as I more forward and experience more.” Candace felt that St. John’s School more than prepared her for her life’s current path. “SJE taught me primarily how to manage my time and work in a dedicated and efficient manner. More than that, though, the environment there taught me the importance of community and of loving everyone around you and make the most of your gifts.”
