THE MOST REVEREND JAMES L. CONNOLLY, D.D.. S.C.. H.D.
All the students at Mt. St. Mary's feel greatly indebted to His Excellency. the
Most Reverend James L. Connolly. D.D.. Sc. HD.. for his fatherly interest. His
Excellency, the Bishop, has ever taken a deep interest in our scholastic activities. and
has been most gracious in donating gifts to our library. For all these kind. thoughtful
favors we are grateful to him.
REVEREND EDWARD J. GORMAN, A.M.
lt is with sincere pride and respect that we, the Senior Class of 1954, dedicate
this yearbook to you, the Reverend Edward J. Gorman, A.M., our Diocesan Superin-
tendent of Schools. You have, on many occasions, shown interest in our progressive
academy. To hear your encouraging messages always made us very happy.
We realize the great debt that we owe to you for your tireless efforts over the
many past fruitful years, and we ask God to bless you so that you may continue to
carry on His work in the field of Catholic Education.

THE RIGHT REVEREND JAMES J. GERRARD, V.G.
Because of Monsignor Cerrardls untiring efforts as director of our sodality, "The
Sodality of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Mother Cabrini," we respectfully honor
Monsignor as the devoted friend of youth, who strives to inspire us with deep,
practical devotedness. Monsignor Gerrard has also displayed constant fidelity in
instructing the Seniors in their choice of a vocation and in the phases of life
necessary for the high ideals of Catholic women. We are grateful for the opportunity
we have had here at Mount Saint Mary Academy to come under his direction, and
we pray that God will bountifully reward Monsignor for his sincere interest in the
problems that the girls may have.
MOTHER MARY HILDA. R.S.M.. Ph.D.
It is the privilege of us Seniors of 1954 to express our most sincere expression of
gratitude to Mother Mary Hilda, R.S.M., Ph.D.. Mother Provincial of the Sisters of
Mercy of the Province of Providence. By her interesting talks to the girls, and her
deep spiritual influence, she has instilled into our minds the thought of being more
like our Blessed Mother, the Lady of Fatima. This. indeed. has been most inspirational.
Mother Provincial has constantly taken a deep interest in every factor that pertains
to our academy. She has encouraged us by her exhortations to the practices of virtue
expected of girls trained in a Catholic high school.
For all your many favors and advice, Mother Mary Hilda, R.S.M., Ph.D., we ask
God to bless you abundantly'so that you may continue the work in His vineyard.

Whenever we look back upon our years at Mount Saint Mary Academy,
uppermost in our minds and hearts will be memories of our beloved
Principal, Sister Mary Carmela, R.S.M. Sister has striven valiantly
throughout our years at the Academy to help each of us to developuall
of our talents and potentialities to the greatest possible degree, so that
we may go forth into the world as capable, intelligent Catholic women.
A shining example of virtue personified in herself, Sister has never allowed
us to lose sight of the fact that humility is the greatest of virtues, par-
ticularly in the face of success, and that modesty and ladylike actions
are never outdated. Because of Sister's inspiration, we shall all endeavor
to follow the path she has set for us, and live our lives '5Under the Mantle
of Mary," no matter what our vocation.
SISTER STANISLAUS is our
efficient secretary here at the
Mount. Her unruffled patience,
in spite of demands, and her ad-
vice have been an asset to many

If red hair is an indication of a fiery temper, then
Janice is certainly a phenomenon. Although she is a
regular 'Learrot top," Janice doesn't have a tempermental
bone in her body and she is, in fact, one of the calmest,
most even-tempered girls in our class. Janice has proved
her patience and endurance many times as class secretary

FOUR YEARSfFAITHFUL SONGSTERS-SENIORS ALL!
Senior soloists rehearse with their accompanist, Marianne Postiglione.
"I have never before heard so many fine voices combined in one group." This was a comment
made by Alice Jackson, a T.V. personality, after a special choir from our Glee Club appeared
on her program. Noteworthy praise, indeed, but fully deserved by these industrious, talented
girls who comprise the Clee Club of Mount Saint Mary Academy. Trained under the excellent
direction of Sister Mary Gabriella, R.S.M., F.T.C.L., this seventy voice group presents two
concerts each year-one at Christmas. and the other a Spring concert in April. They also sing
at various religious exercises, hospitals, and charitable organizations throughout the city, lending
a note of cheer to all.
