Eight seniors were honored at our Feast of the Ascension of Jesus Mass on May 18th in the presence of their fellow students, as the Lourdean Award Nominees for 2023 were announced. These students represent a wonderful and outstanding senior class who we are very proud of.

The Our Lady of Lourdes Lourdean Award is the highest honor the faculty and administration can bestow on a graduate. The award recognizes the young men and women who, in their estimation best exemplify the qualities and characteristics professed by our school’s philosophy which include credentials such as Scholarship, Leadership, Personality, Spirituality, Judgement, and Optimism. A Lourdean is a person who puts others above self, who wills the good of another and desires to serve their fellow man in need. The Lourdean Award recognizes those students who embody the love one should expect from a young Catholic man or woman. 

The recipients are elected by ballot among the faculty and the winner is known only at the moment that the award is bestowed at Graduation.

We are very proud of all our Lourdeans who are graduating this year, and although only one award is given to a senior boy and senior girl, all are honored and recognized by the nomination.

Congratulations to Mikayla Bowen, Isabella Cho, Gabriella DeGuzman, Matthew DeMelo, Giovanni Gauzza, Kayla Joseph, Matthew Krauza, and Patrick McGuinness.
