Nguyen recognized with Sister Mary Frances Warde Award

Hang Nguyen

Mount Mercy University graduate Hang Nguyen, a native of Vietnam, received the Sister Mary Frances Warde Award during the 2019 Commencement Ceremony on Sunday, May 19. Hang complete actuarial science and accounting studies in December 2018.

This award is the highest honor given to a student who transferred into Mount Mercy and has acquired a minimum of 30 credit hours at the university. The award is conferred upon the graduate who, in addition to a high scholastic rating (3.0 or above), has exemplified to a marked degree cooperation with administration, faculty, and students; integrating in his/her personal relationships; and leadership and loyalty in furthering the ideals of Mount Mercy. The award is named for Sister Mary Frances Warde, who founded the Sisters of Mercy in America in 1843.

Nguyen transferred to Mount Mercy in 2016 from Columbia College in Vancouver, British Columbia. During her first year as a Mustang, she was a work-study student in the business office where she was vital in the documentation and transition of a long-standing employee Nancy Roush.

Roush said, “The diligence Hang exemplified was unmatched. She did exactly as instructed, and then she did more. She truly loved her work-study position and cared so much about the people she worked with.”

In the classroom, Nguyen excelled in two very technical and different fields, actuarial science and accounting. She was engaged, asked insightful questions, and accomplished high-level work. She was also engaged with several organizations on campus, including as an officer in the Investment Club, while maintaining academic and work study achievements.

Congratulations, Hang!
