Efforts in the Classroom Honored
Holy Family Catholic High School in Victoria held its annual Academic Recognition Ceremony on Thursday, April 25, 2019. More than 350 students were recognized for academic honors and department awards. Principal Kathie Brown opened the ceremony with the Holy Family prayer and the following message, “The Holy Catholic High School mission statement has two parts: 1. We provide opportunities to grow spiritually, morally, intellectually and physically within a community of faith, and 2. we encourage our students to achieve personal excellence, to use their talents to lead, to serve God, one another and the larger community. The development of the whole person is integral to this school. Finding ways to appreciate our students so they know their efforts matter is challenging. Recognition is valuable. Recognition is magnified when it is combined with appreciation. This is why our being together as a school community matters. Thank you for being here to witness the many ways our students grow in faith, integrity, leadership, and scholarship.”
