  • Scecina continues tradition of honoring academic achievement

    President Joe Therber

    Dear Crusader Community, 

    Every year, Scecina is blessed to educate students who are high academic achievers and servant-leaders in the community. In the early 2000s, the school began a tradition known as the President’s Academic Excellence Awards program.

    Through this event, we publicly recognize students who have earned the highest grade point averages in every class.

    How many high schoolers spend 40 hours a week in June and July studying cells under a microscope to see if they will turn into cancer? That’s how Scecina’s Natalia McCallister (left) spent her summer vacation, and she was happy for the opportunity to work eight weeks at the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center.
