Sacred Heart Academy looks forward to welcoming guest speaker, Abigail McGuckin '15 and her mother Allison at the Mother-Daughter Mass and Luncheon on Sunday, April 28.
Abigail McGuckin graduated from Sacred Heart in 2015 as a lifer. She enrolled as a pre-k student encouraged by her Aunt Elise Tucci (Class of 1970) and cousin Lauren Tucci (Class of 2001). After spending fourteen years walking up and down the Hill, she attended the University of Pennsylvania. At Penn, Abigail majored in Urban Studies and Environmental Studies, graduating with honors in both. Her degrees build off of interests formed at SHA, namely biology, history, and comparative government. Her undergraduate research examines rising sea levels and increased flooding in Philadelphia and Denmark. Starting her junior year, she became the Water Director for a UN Millennium Fellowship sponsored organization at Penn. Next year she will start a Master of Philosophy in Water Science, Policy, and Management at the University of Oxford.
