Maira Nawaz

Pennsylvania State University (Harrisburg)

Healthcare Management


Maira Nawaz '17Coming from a large public high school, Maira Nawaz ’17, quickly felt the benefit of the smaller community at Harrisburg Academy.  “From the first meeting with Mrs. Sabath, we made a strong connection.  We spoke about the option of a medical career but wanting to be in business.  She helped me decide on pursuing healthcare management,” Maira said.  “Mrs. Sabath knows me personally and is always available to help me.” 


During her time at the Academy, Maira had the opportunity to join the Varsity Girls’ Soccer team and participate in Centers activities.  Maira’s strong academic record and activities allowed her to gain admittance to every college to which she applied — including Highly Competitive colleges (as ranked by Barron’s Profiles of American Colleges) such as University of Pittsburgh and Franklin & Marshall (January admit).  Maira has chosen to attend Penn State Harrisburg with guaranteed transfer to Penn State’s University Park (main campus) location.
