Two outstanding Moore Illustration seniors have been recognized for their leadership skills and community engagement.
Stephanie Weinger is the recipient of the Marian Locks Senior Award, and Ashley Monteiro was awarded the Happy Fernandez Leadership Prize.
"Stephanie and Ashley’s involvement and engagement in the community, and their ability to articulate how their experiences have shaped them, make them ideal candidates for these awards," said Moore President Cecelia Fitzgibbon. "Stephanie and Ashley would make Marian Locks and Happy Fernandez very proud."
Both students will be formally recognized at Commencement on May 16. Monteiro will be speaking at the in-person Commencement event this fall about how her leadership experiences have influenced her.
