New this year was an award in memory of alumna Grace Rett '18, the Grace Rett Philippians 4:13 Award. The award is given to a rising senior in honor of Grace. The recipient reflects the qualities of Grace, who was a dedicated student, a committed athlete, and a young woman of faith who found strength in Christ to achieve great things. Like Grace, the recipient is a selfless teammate, participates actively in their faith, and loves being a Golden Knight, embodying the mission of Marianapolis. The inaugural award was given to Grace's sister, Brianne '21.
