As the youngest of six in her family, Molly understood the meaning of “sisterhood” far before she walked the hallways of IHA. Right from the start of freshman year, Molly became very involved at IHA and can be described as a model IHA girl. Known for her exceptional soccer playing, school spirit and sunny disposition Molly is truly a Blue Eagle to be treasured. You may have seen Molly Younghans throughout her time at The Heart on the soccer field, cheering the loudest at a basketball game, or in the hallways of IHA always with a smile on her face.
As a freshman, Molly made the Varsity soccer team and continued to play soccer all four years of high school. Molly considers it a privilege to represent IHA on and off the field. When asked about what she will miss most about IHA, she said “Out of everything, I am going to miss most of all putting on my jersey before every game and have the memories on the field with my best friends and teammates.” Molly’s friend and teammate, Tori Muller ‘18 recently said, “Molly does everything with enthusiasm and truly wants everyone to be doing their best and having fun.”
As she continued her high school career, Molly became ardently involved in Student Council (STUCO). In keeping with her enthusiasm for IHA sports she could often be seen in the crowd cheering on fellow IHA teams. Her commitment was so strong that in her senior year, she was the president of Eagle Nation, a club focusing on school spirit.
Molly’s involvement was not limited to participating and cheering at sports events. She was also involved in academic, social and service clubs. She was also involved in the French club, Student Against Modern Slavery (SAMS) Club, Christian Actions Reaching Everyone (C.A.R.E.), and acted as a peer mentor her senior year. Through her great involvement in the school, Molly’s compassion and hard work have been made evident in her four years at IHA.
Molly’s positive attitude towards everything that she does has shown through not only her peers but her teachers as well. “She is the type of person who can walk into a room and bring an energy that no one else can match,” explains Molly’s Physics teacher, Mrs. Adamo. “Her smile truly lights up the room and she is the type of person you would want to be around.”
In the fall, Molly will be attending Pennsylvania State University and has been admitted into the College of Communications. We wish you all the best of luck at Penn State as you begin the next chapter of your life!
