She is in the National Honors Society and was selected to the NFHCA National Academic Squad as an All WNY Scholar-Athlete.
     In addition to her building a strong academic foundation, Elizabeth has earned the respect of the entire faculty and her peers alike.

    'But soon we will die and our memory of those we love will have left the earth, and we ourselves shall be loved for a while and forgotten. 

    But the love will have been enough; all those impulses of love return to the love that made them. 

    Even memory is not necessary for love.  

    There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.'

Paraphrased from Thornton Wilder,
 
The Bridge of San Luis Rey
