Faculty Tribute

I’d known Sophia as Victoria’s little sister. Sophia was a shy freshman, with a timid and soft voice. She desired to sing well and was devoted to the vocal community. Leap to Sophia’s junior year when she was cast as Rapunzel for Into the Woods—a part that required a clear, strong, operatic soprano voice. She wasn’t there yet, but she spent free blocks in private lessons. Steadily, her voice blossomed and rang true to the character. Sophia, your contribution to music and theatre at Mayfield will long be remembered. It has been my true pleasure working with you. Sincerely, Al

Little Sister Shout-Out

Sophia has honestly been the best Big Sister I could ever wish for. She has always been incredibly sweet and generous with me. Sophia is also an exceptionally talented musician and I love hearing her sing during masses. Thank you so much Sophia! I can’t wait to see what wonderful things you’ll do next!
— Miriam B.Y. '22
