May Earns Sheahan Award

High school student running in cross country meet

Molly May (SRS ’17) was one of two juniors at The Academy of the Holy Cross selected to receive the 2020 Coach Sheahan Excellence Award. The honor includes a scholarship toward tuition and is presented to a rising senior who demonstrates strong faith, academics, and leadership. May was nominated by her cross country coach, who wrote, "Molly is a superb athlete, citizen and scholar. Her faith is the centerpiece of who she is. Her leadership, integrity, and commitment not only to herself but to others is always shown each day.” AHC's athletic director contacted the recipients on Friday to notify them of their win, and the school shared the news on its website and social media.

Last month, May also was voted as the senior class president for 2020-21 at The Academy of the Holy Cross.
