As a school in its 168th year of continuous operation, we have been blessed with a countless number of graduates who have become difference makers in their jobs and social circles. Men and women who live out the Gospel message daily and who have represented the ideals of a Catholic education at the highest level.
Each winter, during our celebration of Catholic Schools Week, we recognize one of our graduates with the presentation of the National Catholic Education Association's Distinguished Graduate Award. It is an opportunity to acknowledge a graduate who has succeeded in his/her professional career and who has also used their God-given gifts and talents for the betterment of their community.
Listening to the accomplishments of the recipient is not only impactful to the attentive students sitting in the church pews, but it also gratifying to the current teachers who represent the educators that helped parents in putting these alums on the right track academically and morally.
Such recognition is equally impressive for parents in attendance as it validates their perceptions of the caliber of student who matriculates from Saints Peter and Paul School.
