Magda M. Olivas Carmona, 2020 Presidential Award Recipient

At St. Mary’s University, I found my Marianist family, including professors and role models who care about my professional growth. As I started spending more time with the Marianist brothers and sisters, their humble and beautiful souls changed my way of approaching life. One year, Sister Gretchen Trautman, F.M.I., invited my brother and me to spend Easter with her and other professed Marianists. Seeing their hearts open to welcome other people called me to do the same for others.

St. Mary’s will always live inside me. I leave with an education of which I never imagined I was worthy. St. Mary’s taught me to say yes to transformation, servant leadership, God and his plan to share my knowledge and abilities with my brothers and sisters.
