Alumni Council Member and Annie’s classmate Endien Montgomery Freeman ‘98 says of her friend, “She’s amazing!” MPCS pre-school teacher Jenica Stephens shares, “Annie uses her gift of communicating to bless others and point them to Jesus. Her smile can light up a room, and her laughter is contagious! She radiates the love of Christ. Best of all, Annie is genuine, authentic, and humble. She is so deserving of the honor as MPCS Alumna of the Year.” Annie says of receiving this recognition, “I am grateful to MPCS for instilling in me a sense of trust in God and myself, an opportunity to lead as student body president, and the honor of learning from my teachers at MPCS.” Congratulations, Annie!
