McNicholas celebrates a successful year of student achievement

At McNicholas, students are consistently challenged to achieve their academic best. Congratulations to all our Rockets who stepped up to the challenge this year. They were recognized at our annual Academic Awards ceremony on Friday, May 13.

Principal David Mueller congratulated students, saying, “This morning we recognize students who have gone above and beyond the ordinary.  They have excelled—in using to the fullest—their God-given gifts and talents. They have taken those talents and abilities, and through their hard work and persistent effort, they have multiplied them.”

For a complete listing of all the accomplishments, view the program for the 2022 Academic Awards.
