Junior Eva Nsengiyumva, recipient of the Nashville Catholic Business Women’s League scholarship, recently spoke to the group at their September meeting. She explained how her experience at JPII has shaped her into the young woman she is today. She shared how she has been encouraged by her teachers to set her goals high and strive for success, which she continues to do by taking three AP classes this year (AP US History, AP Language and Composition, and AP Chemistry). Eva shared that even her participation in extracurricular activities such as volleyball, piano, and Model UN have helped her to become more confident in her ability to achieve her goals. “My achievements would not have been possible without the knowledgeable and caring teachers, friends, and organizations such as the Nashville Catholic Business Women’s League,” said Eva in her closing remarks.
Eva is a perfect candidate for the NCBWL scholarship – meeting their desire to support the education of young women who reflect the life of Catholic teaching and good works. Eva made an impression before even becoming a student at JPII, recalls John Cooper, Director of Admissions. “I remember Eva when she came through the admissions process as an eighth grader. I knew when I met her that she was smart, determined, and certain to do great things at JPII and beyond,” said Cooper. Eva is one of many Holy Rosary Academy alumni making the most of their educational opportunities at JPII.
