Mother Jerome Schmitt

Scholarship Recipient

Megan Wortmann The Mother Jerome Schmitt Presidential Scholarship This award is a prestigious, full tuition scholarship awarded to a senior every year based on scholastic achievement, participation, and contribution to the academic and civic community, along with faculty recommendations. The scholarship is presented in honor of MMC’s founding president, Mother Jerome Schmitt. Mother Jerome assisted in opening Mount Marty Academy in 1922, where she taught for ten years. In 1932 she was elected Prioress of Sacred Heart Convent and under her leadership, Mount Marty Junior College began in 1936. She then served as MMC’s first president from 1936-1957.

“Receiving this scholarship is a huge blessing in my life and I extremely grateful that I was chosen for this honor.


So much has been given to me here at Mount Marty!

I hope to give back more of my talent to the community in my

remaining time here. I am honored to represent Mother Jerome Schmitt and I hope to exemplify what she has done.”
