One of the largest classes in school history made that famous walk across the stage Wednesday evening at the Richard & Louise Scholl Student Center as 77 young men and women received their diplomas from Marquette Catholic High School.
Principal Allyson Headd declared the welcome address before senior Matthew Malave delivered an address on behalf of the students. Susan Edmonds and Roujia Wang presented the graduates while president James G. White and superintendent of schools Joseph Majchrowicz, Ed.D. distributed the diplomas.
Led by music director Amy Crane, the Marquette Singers performed One Republic's "I Lived." Senior Rory Neary gave one last address before the graduates exited to "Pomp and Circumstance."
Twenty-two members of Marquette's Class of 2019 graduated with summa cum laude distinction by virtue of a 4.00 cumulative grade-point average or higher. Those 22 students accrued an average of 27 dual-credit hours, including a class-high 39 by Malave.
For the ninth consecutive year, each member of Marquette's graduating class received acceptance into at least one college or university.
Marquette Catholic High School extends its congratulations to the Class of 2019 and its families.
