Saint Mary’s community mourns student death

| Monday, April 6, 2020

Isabelle Melchor, a Saint Mary’s senior, died March 12, according to an email the Office of the President sent to the College community Monday.

Melchor was a global studies major, according to the email. She was involved with the Belles Against Violence Office, La Fuerza, Belles Connect, Anthropology Club and SMC orchestra.

One of Melchor’s professors said in the email that she was “exactly the kind of humble, curious and hardworking student that made his job so great.”

“Isabelle was a true inspiration,” the email said. “In spite of her health situation, regardless of how horrible she felt, she was quick to flash her infectious smile and she worked hard to be present and complete her education at Saint Mary’s.”

The College invited the community to pray for Melchor’s family, her friends and her faculty as they manage during this difficult time.
