St. Mary's Community Fund raised $30,009.01 during their school-wide GIVE901 & "Thanks A Million" coin/money drive to benefit children in our community!
The St. Mary's Community Fund (SMCF), a student-run organization in the Upper School, was founded in 1998 with the purpose of teaching St. Mary's students the importance of philanthropy, community service, and the grant-making process. Each year, the SMCF raises upwards of $35,000 and awards five $7,000 grants tovarious nonprofits – voted upon by all members - benefitting children in the Memphis community. Beginning November 14, girls in the ECC and LS brought pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and dollars on designated days to help fund the grants process. Thank you girls!

We are proud to announce that St. Mary's senior, Caroline Ciaramitaro, has been recognized as a semifinalist for the Morehead-Cain Scholarship at the University of North Carolina and for also being named a semifinalist in the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation.
The Morehead-Cain is the first merit scholarship established in the U.S. Each year they identify a small, select group of students who are driven leaders with the rare combination of potential, principle, and purpose.
The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation supports over 1,400 college students each year. They seek bright, well-rounded students who not only excel academically but are also actively engaged in their schools. They are leaders who are passionate and service-oriented and demonstrate a sustained commitment to bettering their communities.
