Gwynedd Mercy was recently contacted by US Figure Skating regarding the 2021 Graduating Seniors Program and one of our students, Jillian Saloma ‘21. The Graduating Seniors Program recognizes those student-athletes who have worked hard to pursue figure skating while maintaining their academics. While figure skating is not a traditional school sport, it requires the same dedication, perseverance and time management as any varsity sport.
There are four categories of recognition based on competition and test achievements in all disciplines of figure skating. Student-athletes are rewarded based on their highest level of achievement at either the Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Bronze level. We are #MercyProud to share that Jill has been awarded the Platinum level Graduating Seniors Award.
