Gesu School is proud of our 8th graders, who graduated on June 13, 2018, at The Church of the Gesu. We thank Gesu families, teachers, staff, supporters, board members, and friends for your role in making this milestone possible for our students. The Class of 2018 will attend outstanding high schools, listed below. We look forward to learning of their future accomplishments!
In addition to being granted diplomas and scholarships, students expressed their gratitude and joy through song, prayer, and a praise dance. They presented a class gift to the missions for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico and shared roses with their families and guardians to thank them for their support.
Fr. Neil Ver’Schneider, S.J., Gesu Chaplain, offered a blessing over students. Commencement speaker, Ashley Howard, Gesu School Class of 1995 and Head of Men’s Basketball at La Salle University, inspired students to be confident and to continue to make positive choices. Bryan Carter, Gesu President and CEO, encouraged students to soar in their future endeavors and to exhibit the strong character that they have formed at Gesu School.
Thank you to 8th Grade Teachers, Ms. Pickett and Ms. Weatherly, for their dedication.
