Letters from tke Editors 




& 




Hello, my name is Xochil Canto and I 
am a freshman at the Mount but most 
significantly, I enjoy working on yearbook 
and exploring my creative side. As a 
representative of the Mount's Yearbook for 
08' -09', I'm grateful to have worked as Co- 
Editor, and staff member with all freshmen 
ladies who were dedicated, talented, and 
motivated to make this yearbook great. Our 
ambition to make a great yearbook was 
carried out with immense team effort, 
creativity, and responsibility by all 
yearbook staff. As we look back to this year 
we will be able to remember the highlights 
of the Mount, captured for all to cherish. 
Thank You. 



Hi! 
I'm Lizbeth Hernandez and I'm a freshman. 
Being a Co- Editor for the yearbook as a 
freshman has been one of the best experience, 
because I have been able to experience first 
hand how amazing the Mount is. MSMC is such 
a tight knit community and being so, that has 
given me the opportunity to build a mini family 
as I embark on this journey. I have been able to 
see and experience the many opportunities that 
Mount provides for its students, which makes 
me iiber happy, since college is one of the most 
exciting journeys we will ever embark on. 
Taking part and having the opportunity to 
capture those memories for you makes me really 
happy. I hope you enjoy reminiscing on the past, 
as much as the staff and I have enjoyed 
providing them for you.

\As you travel through life your dreams will guide you, 
\determination will get you there, and love will provide the 
'greatest scenery of all. And I will share every moment with 
ou, whether it is good or bad, light or dark, easy or hard, 
I will always be here to support, love and worship you. I 
love you "Angel Pie." I am very proud of all you have 
overcome to get here. Don 't let today 's disappointments 
cast a shadow on tomorrow 's dreams. You are the greatest 
woman I know. Your talent is God's gift to you, what you 
do with it is your gift back to God. 

Your loving husband, Esteban Lara, Jr.
