With the countdown to Baccalaureate Mass and Commencement dangling at 24 days, there are a host of events and activities between this writing and the Class of 2022’s collective cap toss. Marquette Catholic High School will celebrate its Prom tomorrow (Saturday) at Barrelhouse at Zorn, the Marquette Mulligan is set for May 23rd, and Academic Honors Day will take place on June 3rd among others.

As part of perpetual upgrades to our campus, Acorn Sound Technology completed the installation of a new sound system inside the Scholl Center this past week. The enhanced equipment, which will be on display for all graduation events, has us especially excited to welcome our graduates and their families and friends into the Scholl Center on June 3rd and 6th.
While so much concentration and focus are fixated on the here and now, longer-term planning and identity solidification endure on the periphery.
 
Effective July 1st, Marquette Catholic High School will incorporate an accent color into its branding style guide. Our navy (#000033) and gold (#ffca3a) remain untouched as we usher in a baby/cyan blue (#73caf3). To bolster our Catholic identity even further, this lighter shade of blue is a nod to the hue of the garment often depicted on the Virgin Mary. Students will be able to sport the new accent color during the 2022-2023 academic year as part of approved uniform options.

Also effective July 1st, Marquette Catholic High School will return to the three-letter “MQT” designation as an acceptable reference, not the four-letter “MQTT.” This adjustment aligns the school with athletic and performing arts name and branding distinctions. 
Lastly, to ascertain unity and equality across all athletic teams, “Blazers” will be Marquette Catholic High School’s lone recognized nickname. Any reference to “Lady Blazers” should be discontinued.

As the Class of 2022 closes this exciting chapter to begin anew, we feel a similar revival here at Marquette Catholic High School. We stand prepared to embrace the immense opportunities before us. As the Acts of the Apostles teaches us, the Lord’s work is never done.
