The Padua Franciscan community celebrated our outstanding students during the Senior Awards Assembly on Friday, May 22, 2015. Over 70 percent of the Class of 2015 has been offered one or more non-need-based scholarships amounting to over $16.2 million. These scholarships testify to the quality and value of a Padua Franciscan education.
The Class of 2015′s valedictorian is James Meade (4.96 GPA). The salutatorian is Amanda Jancewicz (4.87 GPA).
In keeping with Padua tradition, each year the Padua faculty has the honor of selecting one senior young man and woman who best represent the ideals of Padua Franciscan High School. The awards of Mr. and Miss Paduan are given to the seniors who exemplify the finest characteristics of the ideal Padua man and woman. All facets of personality are considered in the selection for this honor including: Christian values, Franciscan compassion, academic dedication, strong character, superior leadership qualities, and concerned citizenship.
The Mr. Paduan 2015 award went to Ben Novotny. The Miss Paduan 2015 award went to Sam Hanna.
Unique to Padua’s athletic department is the coveted Mr. and Miss Bruin awards. The athletic department and coaches select the seniors who most deserve the honor of the best athlete at Padua. The qualities on which the athletes are evaluated are their athletic skills, athletic achievements in high school athletics, participation, coachability, sportsmanship, leadership, academics, and school involvement.
The Mr. Bruin 2015 award went to Kyle Kaminski. The Miss Bruin 2015 award went to Jackie Hartman.
Congratulations to all of our seniors on their many accomplishments! May God bless all of them as they begin the next chapter of their lives.
