Isabel will graduate from the Potomac School and plans to attend the University of Wisconsin at Madison.  She was christened and confirmed at St. John’s, where she enjoyed serving as an acolyte and chalice bearer.  In the annual Christmas Pageant, she played many roles, including an angel and a wild beast.  She says one of the highlights of her time at St. Johns was serving as Mary in the pageant, although she was afraid the Joseph she shared the stage with was going to drop the baby Jesus!
