Congratulations to our newest graduates who received their diplomas at the PromoWest Pavilion at Ovation on Sunday, May 22.
Student Body President Lauren Keith, Valedictorian Andrew Collette, and English Teacher Mr. Jeff Mulvey were nominated by the Class of 2022 to speak at the graduation ceremony.
Lauren challenged her classmates to continue to be creative, especially when they find themselves in difficult situations and reminded them that they will always have a home at McNicholas: “Because McNick has properly taught us how to love and how to be loved, the person to the right of you, to left of you, in front of you, and behind you genuinely cares about you. These are your brothers and sisters…Just as Father Kevin said in his homily two days ago, ‘You will always have a home at 6536 Beechmont Avenue’ and you will always have your family within that home.”
After the awarding of diplomas, Mr. Mueller sent the graduates forth, saying, “We have been truly blessed with the intellect, talents, energy, dedication and enthusiasm of these young adults. They have grown in faith, academic excellence, and compassionate leadership. As we send them forth as alumni, we ask the Lord to bless each of them in all their future endeavors and to help them to continue to grow towards Full Stature in Christ.”
