For 68 years College of Saint Mary (CSM) has recognized students who exemplify the values of character, leadership and service through its annual “Queen of Hearts” celebration sponsored by the Student Senate. On Saturday, February 22, Maryann Forsell, a biology and chemistry major from Norfolk, Neb., was crowned CSM’s 2014 Queen of Hearts. Maryann has been involved with the Math and Science Club, Do Unto Others, Student Senate, Campus Activities Board and is a member of the golf team at CSM. She has been accepted to dental school and plans to become a general dentist or an oral surgeon.
The "Queen of Hearts" is selected by students, faculty and staff through a campus-wide election. In addition to the “Queen of Hearts,” a “Princess” is selected for first, second and third year students.
For third-year, the honor of princess was given to Sarah Golka, an elementary, special education and ESL (English as a second language) major from Grand Island, Neb.
