Maria Loves Gross Catholic!
Meet Maria Mwita, Class of 2019. Maria is a student athlete, theatrical performer, choir member, and ambassador for the school she loves. Maria previously attended public school but was drawn to living her faith with others at school. “The faith aspect of Gross drew me in,” recalls Maria. “As a Christian, I love how I can live out my faith at school.”
The fact that Gross Catholic is a college preparatory school helped solidify her decision to transfer after her sophomore year. “At Gross I’m pushed to excel in my courses. Plus, the small class size ensures that I will get the help I need to succeed,” states Maria.
A natural born songstress, Maria is active in the Dux Esto drama and choir programs under the guidance of Mrs. Becca Jackson York. Maria looks up to Mrs. Jackson as both a mentor and role model. According to Maria, “Mrs. Jackson is an incredible teacher that I can always come to with any problems. Choir is one of my favorite classes and Mrs. Jackson makes the auditorium feel like a home.”
Maria will graduate this spring and she has big plans for her future. Although she is not yet certain of which college she will attend, she plans to major in speech communications and minor in health and clinical services. She also hopes to pursue the arts and musical theater. Her goal is to bring joy and happiness to others through her work.
