Quote from teacher: “Molly is a surprise package,” said Raymond Hafemann, foreign language department chairman. “When you first meet this unassuming, small young lady, you would be tempted to overlook her. Yet once you see this young lady’s list of achievements, or better, have a chance to see some of her creative writing, you realize the special talents that she has. She has the skills of one who has studied Spanish for far more years than she has. Molly will be a gem for wherever she chooses to attend college and an attribute to the institution. I can’t wait to see what she accomplishes in her lifetime!”
