Carondelet Students Honored

On April 6, Carondelet was pleased to honor eight amazing students with Jefferson Awards for their outstanding community service. Jefferson Awards is a national organization that supports, encourages, and recognizes high school students who perform extraordinary service. Each year, Carondelet allows faculty, staff, students, and parents to nominate a member of the community who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to service. The Jefferson Awards allow us to celebrate the vibrant culture of service at Carondelet. Our students have done amazing work and demonstrated such passion for serving the dear neighbor. We are extremely proud of all they have accomplished,” said Carondelet Principal Kevin Cushing.

The recipients for Special Project were Sophia Anderson, Class of 2018, and Cassidy Tshimbalanga, Class of 2018. The recipients for Continuous Service were Lauren Cademartori, Class of 2018; Kathleen Stein, Class of 2018; Ashley Ng, Class of 2017; Katherine Pappas, Class of 2018; Annabelle Vasconi, Class of 2020, and Lauren Wolf, Class of 2018.
