Therese Martello

College Choice: Louisiana State University
Major: Pre-Med

Therese brims over with enthusiasm and is always there to bring a classmate up when they are down. As Student Body Vice President this year, she has excelled in this leadership role and loved every minute of it. She describes her school experience, “McGehee has fundamentally changed me as learner, leader, and person. I will never forget the opportunities McGehee has given me. And when asked about her favorite tradition, Therese’s favorite is the Upper School crawfish boil. “I am going to miss the crawfish boil the most because it is McGehee’s way of getting every grade to bond with music, snowballs, crawfish and a talent show. It’s my favorite event of the year and I hate to have missed it this year.” She can’t wait to be an LSU Tiger come fall.
