In early December, our Choir lead by Mr. Jim Timer, performed at Walt Disney World in Florida. They sang with other high school and adult choirs at the Annual Candlelight Processional. The narrator for their two performances was the actor Robby Benson, best known for his vocal talents on Disney's Beauty & The Beast. This was the second time they were selected to appear by Walt Disney World for this wonderful opportunity.
On Founders Day, Bishop Timothy Senior '77 blessed and rededicated our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Center in memory of his former classmate, Matt Walsh.
