2015 SCC Scholar Leaders
April 10, 2015
The Southern Connecticut Conference (SCC) recently hosted its 21st Scholar Leader Banquet. Forty-six scholar leaders, two from each member school, were recognized for outstanding scholarship and leadership in their respective schools and external communities. Ashley Heidtmann ’15 and Isabella Siegel ’15 were selected to represent the Academy.
Since her freshman year Ashley has assumed leadership positions and is currently serving as president of Student Council. She consistently maintains high academic achievement while participating in varsity athletics and numerous extracurriculars including National Honor Society, STUCO, RAOK, and SADD. In summer 2014 Ashley was selected to intern at Apostle Immigrant Services (AIS) as a translator and case researcher. As a native Spanish speaker she was an invaluable asset to this non-profit organization. Whether in the classroom, on a team, or serving others, Ashley works tirelessly, always giving 100%.
A gifted student, Isabella is a phenomenal young woman with a variety of interests. In addition to her exceptional academic ability, she is an accomplished artist. This year, Isabella serves as president of National Honor Society and Key Club and is an officer in Art Club. She is a recipient of the University of Rochester Xerox Award, Harvard Book Award, CT Science Fair Award, and a nominee for the Governor’s Scholar Award. Isabella dedicated two summers interning in the Yale Pulmonary Critical Care and Sleep Department working as a molecular cell biologist. In the fall, she will attend Haverford College where she was accepted early decision.
Sacred Heart is proud, Ashley and Isabella!
