She gives everything she has to whatever she is doing. Laura is not afraid to show her faith to her friends, she has been active on service trips, and truly shows Christ’s love in her life.”

February 2016: Jonathon Vos
“Jonathon is a quiet leader on the field, in classroom, and in the hallways. He has participated in service trips, SkyHawk screamers, and athletics. He is one of the kindest most genuine students we have in the school. He treats all students and teachers with respect. I have seen Jonathon reach out to students with patience and kindness who other students ignore. Jonathon never seeks recognition or praise, but quietly does the right thing."
“Jonathon is a caring and happy student. He is a leader for his class and team. I am grateful for the joy Jonathon has brought to my class and the friendship he extends to his classmates.”
“Jonathon has been an influential leader on our service trips. He pours his heart into the children and the work we do with complete humility. Jonathon’s humility and leadership are an integral part of the soccer team, he leads through his hard work and dedication. Jonathon has earned the respect of his teammates, his coaches, and his teachers through his positive demeanor and caring personality. He volunteers in his parish, goes above and beyond with service, works tirelessly on the soccer field, and is a friend to each person he encounters. There is no doubt that Jonathon is a SkyHawk gone MAD.”
