The Office of Catholic Schools honored the 2017 Superintendent's Summa Scholars from the network of Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Hartford. Six Holy Cross High School students were honored at an Awards Ceremony including: Antonio D'Amelio, Katherine Flaherty, Patrick McMahon, Tess Oatley, Andrea Pettinico and Gillian Russo. Students shared this award with a particular teacher of their choice at the ceremony.
"Congratulations to these truly exceptional students," said President, Peg Leger. "They exemplify all that Holy Cross stands for. They are wonderful scholars, and each has contributed to the school community in their own unique way."
"We are very proud of our Summa Scholars," said Andrea Rodriguez, Vice President for Academics. "They are fine young men and women who have shown an admirable commitment to excellence over four years. We wish them well and look forward to their future success."
The Superintendent's Summa Scholar Awards are given to recognize the students, parents and teachers for their commitment to the pursuit of academic achievement. The Summa Scholar represents the top 5% of his/her graduating class in terms of outstanding academic achievement from freshman year to the close of the first semester of his/her senior year, based on the cumulative grade point average.
