Where Our Grads are Going – The Class of 2022

By Leah Folk

September 21, 2022

As our Ursuline Academy Class of 2022 have now begun their next chapters into their college journeys, we wanted to take a look back and celebrate their achievements and matriculations as they carry their Ursuline values with them. We are proud to announce the Class of 2022's matriculations, as well as the Senior Awards, honoring all the ways these young women have excelled in living out our Ursuline values. 

The Class of 2022 Valedictorian - Spring Zhou Salutatorian - Gabriella Meier

Both of these young women have excelled inside and outside of the classroom in addition to all the ways they have been involved in the community. They have served as incredible leaders and examples of Ursuline women, and we are grateful for the impact their leadership has had during these last four years at Ursuline. 

The CLC Award
The CLC Award recognizes a member of the graduating class who exemplifies the Ursuline values of Courtesy, Loyalty and Courage. This tradition is carried on at many Ursuline schools throughout North America.
Ursuline Academy is proud to recognize Kit Michalski as the 2022 honoree.

The SHARPE Award
The SHARPE Award was first presented in 1982 to honor three long-time Ursuline teachers, Mrs. Marie Sherman, Mrs. Thelma Hartnett, and Mrs. Jan Peterson. In honor of these three outstanding teachers, the SHARPE Award was created to recognize a student for her independent thinking, creativity, and initiative in scholarship. The faculty and staff vote for the student who best exemplifies these qualities.
Ursuline Academy is proud to recognize Spring Zhou as the 2022 honoree.

The Spirit of St. Ursula Award
St. Ursula had such undeviating confidence in God’s plan for her that, even amidst adversity and challenge, she demonstrated courage, perseverance, and a zeal for life. It was these characteristics that inspired St. Angela to name her Company of Women after St. Ursula. With this Spirit of St. Ursula Award, we honor a young woman who embodies these same inspirational qualities.
Ursuline Academy is proud to recognize Emily Dacus as the 2022 honoree.
