SR. MARY BOURDON LEADERSHIP AWARD
Pamela Johnson, Chair of the Board of Directors, awarded the Sr. Mary Bourdon Leadership Award at the Washington School for Girls graduation ceremony, on Friday June 15th, saying:
As a co-founder of WSG and former Head of School, Sr. Mary Bourdon provided WSG with outstanding and steadfast leadership for twenty years. The Sr. Mary Bourdon Leadership Award honors a WSG graduate who best exemplifies Sr. Mary’s generosity of heart, determination, and tireless commitment to community.
News anchorwoman, Eun Yang (in green), gave a tour of the NBC4 studio to a group of WSG students in late February. The girls got to check out all of the action both in front of the camera, as well as behind the scenes.
Here the students are posed around the Meet the Press table.
It was a wonderful experience for the students, and some have been inspired to become journalists some day.
