VIRTUE:  COMMITTED

From Lauryn’s Parents:  Lauryn defines the virtue of committed.  As a little girl, Lauryn would commit all of her energy to taking care of her beloved doll that went everywhere with her or her cat. She was “All-In” when it came to taking care of her passions. This trait soon evolved into sports where her commitment was to be the first to practice, last to leave practice and during practice – work harder than anybody else. She was clearly “All-In.” This committed virtue has led Lauryn to the next phase of her young life, becoming a Division I athlete.

Even though Lauryn has finished her senior year at Notre Dame Academy untraditionally, we feel confident that Lauryn “being committed” to her faith, academics, her love for running, friends and family, will navigate her through this next phase of life and continued success.
