Harvard Valedictorian Mary Anne Marks Joins Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist

From Creative Minority Report:

"Here is your awesome story of the day!

The 2010 Harvard Valedictorian, Mary Anne Marks, who delivered her valedictory speech in Latin is joining the awesome Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist in Ann Arbor. Boy I love those nuns!

Kathryn Jean Lopez interviews Miss Marks in "God and Woman at Harvard "

Perhaps this is becoming a trend:

LOPEZ: I don’t know Harvard to be a great incubator or beacon of religious vocations. Am I wrong?

MARKS: Yes, Deo gratias! A couple of years ago, a young man who finished Harvard in three years entered the seminary in St. Louis. A little further back, a young woman who attended Harvard and lived in the same women’s residence that I did joined the Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal. One of my friends, whom I met while she was pursuing a degree at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, joined the Religious Sisters of Mercy two years ago. This July 25, two young men from Harvard joined the Eastern Province of the Dominicans.
This is wonderful news!

Go read the full interview here!

And Just for fun, here is her valedictory speech."
