Bishop Kearney’s cream of the crop was inducted into the Mater Dei Chapter of the National Honor Society during a heralded ceremony at the school that inducted 117 students.

Forty-three seniors received permanent membership, and 33 juniors and 41 sophomores were granted one-year provisional memberships. Each honor student received a membership and a rose from principal Sister Thomasine Stagnitta, and assistant principal Geri Martinez, also the chapter moderator. Requirements for the bragging right are not all academic, explained honor student Mandy Chin.

“Scholarship is not confined to school work and books, but extends beyond the walls of Kearney,” she said. “It is a love of learning, a commitment to education and a devotion to learning.” Nominee Alanna McAuliffe added it was a constant endeavor.

“Punctuate every day with moments of service, live with compassion for others and be willing to dedicate your time and talents wherever and whenever they are needed,” she said.

Social Studies teacher Dr. Ralph Protano spoke at the ceremony of how important these young women are to the future, and urged them to continue their good works.

Standing O congratulations these bright, big-hearted scholars and wishes them all a very successful future.
