               JUBILEE AS A RELIGIOUS OF THE SACRED HEART

                                 ______
                                 

                          HON. DEBBIE DINGELL

                    in the house of representatives

                       Thursday, February 2, 2017

  Mrs. DINGELL. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Margaret Mary 
Canty, RSCJ for her life and service and work on behalf of the 
southeast Michigan community. As a former headmistress and current 
member of the Academy of the Sacred Heart's Board of Trustees, Sister 
Canty has served the school and community at large through her tireless 
efforts and service.
  As Headmistress of the Academy of the Sacred Heart in Bloomfield 
Hills from 1988 through 2000, Sister Canty's leadership played a 
critical role in helping the school grow and evolve to meet the needs 
of the students, staff and community at large. Under Sister Canty, the 
school established the Early Childhood Program and oversaw a successful 
capital campaign that allowed it to expand its science facilities and 
build a new After School Learning center. These actions helped the 
Academy of Sacred Heart modernize and serve a new generation of 
students. After she left Sacred Heart in 2000, Sister Canty worked with 
the Kenwood Academy (now Doane Stuart) in New York, in a variety of 
positions to help the school restructure and serve its retired RCSJs. 
Today, Sister Canty serves on the Academic of the Sacred Heart's Board 
of Trustees, where she provides guidance and advice to the school.
  Sister Canty's life of service and leadership has inspired a new 
generation of thoughtful and community-minded students and educators. 
Her tenure at both Sacred Heart and Doane Stuart was transformative, 
and the initiatives that she has championed continue to help cultivate 
a new generation of Sacred Heart leaders. It is my hope that these 
institutions will build on Sister Canty's legacy of excellence in the 
coming years.
  Mr. Speaker, I ask my colleagues to join me in honoring Margaret Mary 
Canty, RSCJ on her 50th Jubilee for her lifetime of service and 
accomplishments. Sister Canty has served the southeast Michigan 
community well through her work with the Academy of the Sacred Heart 
and the critical role her involvement played in its growth and 
development.
