  • Congratulations to the Class of 2015!

    Congratulations to the Class of 2015: "You stand on the threshold of blazing your own trail."

    On Friday, May 22nd, Marymount bid a fond farewell to the 92 members of the Class of 2015. To set our beloved seniors on their way, Laila Rodriques ‘15 gave the kind of humorous, thoughtful speech that we have come to expect from our graduating ASB Vice President. At the closing of her speech, Laila received a rousing standing ovation, punctuated by her beautiful reflection on all that her class is:

    "Class of 2015, we are strong. We are strong in our opinions and our choices and our love for each other. We, as a class, love and think and speak with such passion that I have seen changes happen and energy grow simply because we willed it so. Kind, collaborative, and deeply loyal, we have looked after each other, and this instinct to take care will make us lights in the world that other people are drawn to. We are a class with spirit, determination and willpower. We will not settle for anything less than what we know we can achieve. "

    Following Laila, our guest speaker Eileen Decker, Deputy Mayor for Homeland Security & Public Security for Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, and mom to two of our graduates, offered our Class of 2015 well-earned accolades as well as sage advice to take with them into the next phase their lives.
