Senior Awards Mass Ends With a Splash

The Senior Awards Mass is a time-honored JSerra tradition, when we gather as a community to recognize the hard work academically, athletically, as well as spiritually from each graduating class.

This year,  Andy Sulick, JSerra’s Admissions Director, opened the ceremony by honoring JSerra’s Norbertine priests for their service and dedication to the JSerra community. Each Norbertine received a plaque and personalized jacket to commemorate their time at JSerra.

Sam Miller, JSerra’s salutatorian and the first Stanford admit in JSerra history, gave his final speech to the graduating class of 2012.

With all of the excitement from the graduates, the awards mass ended with a quick splash at the JSerra pool deck.

The class of 2012 had over 30 awards and certificates given out to recognize the accomplishments of the students, to see the complete list and photos  visit JSerra Alumni on Facebook.

Please join JSerra in our Graduation celebration on Saturday, June 2 in the JSerra Pavilion.*

*Tickets are required to enter the graduation ceremony.
