Johnston Receives Andrew Maisano Leadership Award

by cnewman

For the past four years, Metro Source and the Hamburg Sun have been putting on a banquet to honor the best girls in soccer and the best boys in football.

Also, for the past four years, they have been giving out the Andrew Maisano Leadership Award, named after Andrew Maisano - who played soccer, hockey and lacrosse at St. Francis High School before moving on to play lacrosse at Army.

The award is for a young man or woman who shows strong leadership on and off the field, has a strong commitment to academics and a strong commitment to the community.

Early in the nomination process,Isobel Johnston's name was mentioned by almost everybody in the Mount Mercy Academy community and by her soccer coach John Glose. The nomination list was long as they all stated how this award fits her in many ways.

While others on the team might have gotten more attention, Johnston was the true leader on and off the field for a Mount Mercy soccer team that achieved great goals this year.

Her work in the classroom and the community just proved what kind of leader she truly is.

In the end, Johnston is very deserving of the Andrew Maisano Leadership Award.

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
