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.

"Attending Mount Mercy Academy is one of the best decisions I could have made. Since day one they have challenged me academically, to strive and succeed. For the past two years at Mount Mercy, I received so much help from all the teachers. They are always open to help me with any questions I have. My teachers have even taken time whenever they can to help me to do well with upcoming tests and quizzes. With their help I have been on both honor rolls, and have been a scholar athlete."
