Salute to Excellence 2013

Along with their parents, teachers and classmates, The Michigan Catholic is proud to honor the top graduating students from our 22 Catholic high schools with senior classes in 2013. In the coming years, we also look forward to honoring graduates from our two newest Catholic high schools, St. Catherine of Siena Academy in Wixom and Austin Catholic Academy in Ray Township. May God bless these students and all who are graduating from our Catholic schools this year, and may they glorify Him through their future pursuits.

May the pursuit of excellence mark
the future for all graduates, as it has their high school years.
