Ceremony celebrates success of Class of 2021

WEARING THE GOLD AND BLUE: Senior Deirdre O’Connell and her classmates share in Monday’s Senior Honors Ceremony.

Members of NDCL’s Class of 2021 have been accepted to 141 colleges and universities nationwide and have been offered more the $19 million in scholarships, Principal Mr. Joseph A. Waler proudly announced during Monday evening’s Senior Honors Ceremony.

The ceremony recognized dozens of seniors for their scholastic and other accomplishments over the past four years, including seniors Kelly McGraw and Addison Schermer, who earned the Top Scholar Award for having the highest grade-point averages in the class.

For exemplifying the mission of NDCL in their lives, seniors Evan Fonash, Meghan Hren, Jonathon Legath, and Rylee Yackin received the Living the Truth in Love Award.

Rylee and classmate Hayden Bell were honored with the Sisters of Notre Dame Distinguished Graduate Award. Their names will be inscribed in a book of recognition at the SND Motherhouse in Rome.

Senior Jacob Severino received the Sister Jacquelyn Gusdane Service Award in recognition of her service that impacts, inspires, and transforms the world. Sister Jacquelyn served as NDCL president from 2007-2017.

Seniors Noah Coyne and Erica Leinweber shared the honors as NDCL’s Athletes of the Year for 2020-2021.

Seniors enjoy final week of high school

In a series of fun activities during their last week as NDCL students, our Class of 2021 made sure that the words of our alma mater will ring true as they made memories sure to bring joy for years to come.

Seniors organized a series of creative dress down days, including “dress like a middle schooler” and “dress like your future career.” Wednesday afternoon’s Senior Cookout featured a tropical theme as seniors and about 50 parent volunteers celebrated together on a near-perfect spring day.

On Friday our NDCL “old-timers” wrapped up their high school careers by dressing like senior citizens. To end our week-long celebration of the Class of 2021, Principal Mr. Joseph A. Waler treated the entire school community to waffle cone sundaes at lunch.
