Crusader Natalie Donlan is grateful for the experiences in faith formation available at Scecina Memorial High School. “Prayer, weekly Mass, and daily Catholic Theology classes – all of these opportunities have enhanced my learning experience” Natalie says.

Natalie is making the most of her high school experience by becoming involved in the diverse courses and co-curricular activities offered at Scecina. She is an excellent student, ranked 9th in her class with a 4.15 grade point average on a 4.0 scale. Natalie also is an accomplished athlete. This school year she played JV volleyball for the Crusaders. During the winter sports season she was a varsity basketball cheerleader.

Natalie belongs to the Scecina Baking Club, Key Club, Student Ambassadors, and National Honor Society.

As her senior year approaches, Natalie is undecided on her college plans. She is passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and might incorporate that passion into her career plans. Natalie is also a pro-life advocate and intends to crusade for the cause.

Natalie is the daughter of Jean (Kriech) Donlan ’85 and Jim Donlan. Jean is Director of Community Engagement for Scecina and moderator of the baking club. Jim is a veteran with the Indianapolis Fire Department. He owns and operates the Westside Bait Shop as well. The Donlans have three other children: Mitchell ’15, Julia ’19, and Stuart ’21.

I think that you need to write more about this subject,
it might not be a taboo subject but usually people don't talk
about such subjects. To the next! Best wishes!!
