Sister Lani Manseau first arrived at Elizabeth Seton High School in 1983 and stayed until 2005, when she was transferred to Emmitsburg, MD. She returned to Seton in 2009 as a religion teacher. Her credentials, in addition to being a certified teacher in the State of Maryland, include a Bachelor's degree from Dominican University and a Master's degree from the University of Dayton. Admired by the Seton community for her generosity, love for her students and her presence at athletic events, she won't hesitate to tell you how much she enjoys applauding the accomplishments of our students in the classroom, on stage, on the field, on the court and at the pool.
A fundraising challenge to complete the library was posed to our faculty and staff in the spring of 2017 with an ambitious goal. Not surprisingly, 100% of our faculty and staff stepped up to participate in recognition of Sr. Lani's vivacious spirit, love for life and Seton and her joyous demeanor that brings us all together. As a result, the Board of Directors invited the school community to name our library in honor of Sister Lani. The celebration in September was attended by staff, students, alumnae, Board members, community members and members of Sr. Lani's family.
Sister Lani lives a life of humility and simplicity dedicated to charity. Strengthened by her deep spirituality, she inspires everyone around her to become a part of her joyful community. Her friendship, support and strong faith bind us together and bring laughter to our lives. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to celebrate Sr. Lani in this commemorative way.
