Quote from teacher: “Ellen epitomizes the term ‘scholar athlete,'” said Pam Edgell, athletic director. “She is an outstanding runner on both the cross-country and track teams. She was instrumental in Notre Dame winning the cross-country City Championship all four of her years as captain. Her leadership skills are evident as she mentors younger teammates. It has been a joy to see Ellen excel athletically and in the classroom. She is a Notre Dame woman of vision.”
