Class of 2022 bonds during Senior Sunrise

The Class of 2022 gathered for prayer and play on Friday, Sept. 3 as part of Senior Sunrise, a tradition that marks the beginning of their final year at McNicholas High School

Planned by the CREW Leadership Team with the support of the Alumni Association, Senior Sunrise began with morning Mass for seniors and their parents.  Fr. Kevin Scalf opened the sunrise celebration by highlighting Christ’s message of love. Fr. Kevin said, “In the halls of McNick and on the streets of Mt. Washington, and all points in between ‘love one another, as I have loved you’ by being kind…Give what you have received.”

Seniors then headed out to Paradise for breakfast, corn hole, spike ball, and other community-building fun.  Patti Dold ’71, Sally Garretson ’84, and Judy Jackson ’70 were among the alumni on hand to serve breakfast and welcome the seniors, who will be joining the Alumni Association in May.

Patti Dold, President of the Alumni Association, shared that the group loves to support this celebration because it helps strengthen the lifelong friendships and community that each senior will call upon during their time at McNick and long beyond.

The Class of 2022 will mark the end of their year with a Senior Sunset Celebration.
