Michael was honored in early May with this scholarship. Michael’s name is the first on the scholarship plaque, as this is the first year this scholarship has been offered at Marist. The plaque will be hung up in the halls of Marist High School. He is a graduate from St. Christopher School. He is a member of the National Honor Society and the Math Team.
Congratulations to Michael! Best of luck in your senior year.
