Cabrini Daughters of Isabella ScholarshipAmanda Sisung'18 received the Daughters of Isabella Joan of Arc Circle #1405 $3,000.00 scholarship at their annual luncheon October 2 at Metairie Country Club.

Amanda was chosen from a number of applicants who had to submit an essay on “What Mercy Means to Me and How I Live it,” along with recommendations from their pastors, teachers, and personal role models in their lives.

“Not only was Amanda’s essay excellent,” said Sally P. Gallant, Regent of the Daughters of Isabella and herself a1976 Cabrini alumna, “she also exhibited how she practices her Catholic faith through the numerous organizations to which she belongs as well as being a leader in her community.”

The Daughters of Isabella is an international service organization of Catholic women who support such causes as Pro-Life, feeding the homeless, helping battered women, hosting disabled children, and Breast Cancer Awareness. The Joan of Arc Circle #1405, most of the members are located in the Greater New Orleans area, find furthering the Catholic education of young women to be of great importance.

“Congratulations to you [Yvonne Hrapmann] and the Cabrini community,” Ms. Galland continued. “She is a fine representative of the school and truly lives the principles of Mother Cabrini.
