While vacationing in Canada this summer, Ann Rento, ’81, AHN’s Director of Admissions traveled to the Marie-Rose Chapel located in the Co-Cathedral of Saint Antoine de Padoue, in Longueuil, a city in the Province of Quebec, Canada.  A “Holy Names girl” since first grade, this meant a great deal to her.  “I think Mother Marie Rose has been watching over me most of my life, as I think she does for all our alumnae. It was incredibly moving to be in her beautiful chapel.”  Reflecting on her education at AHN, she said, “There’s something special that happens when you’re a student here – it’s hard to explain – but it stays with you for the rest of your life. I wanted this same experience for my daughters. Because of Holy Names, they are ready for anything the world throws at them.”
As Admissions Director, she encourages all parents of girls to come and see what makes Holy Names different from every other school in the Capital Region.
Ann says her dearest friends are from the AHN Class of ’81 and her favorite memories include forensic tournaments and drama productions with Mrs. Riley.
Ann has three children, Meg ’17, Emily ’18, and Jack, a graduate of Christian Brothers Academy.
