President’s Blog: We Have Much to Celebrate Already

Spread the love


Dear Crusader Community,

We are well into the first week of the second academic quarter of the school year. Yet, it seems as though the school year began only a couple of weeks ago!

At this juncture, we have much at Scecina for which to be thankful and celebrate already:

  • A student body that hails from 16 countries in addition to the United States.
  • Forty-one percent of our students are Hispanic or Latino; 40 percent are Caucasian; 12 percent are Black or African American; four percent are international; and three percent are American Indian or multiracial.
  • A spirited and well-attended Class of 1972 50-year graduation anniversary reunion at Scecina a week ago
  • An outstanding Sacred Music concert last week during which our advanced and beginning choirs performed for an engaged and appreciative audience at Our Lady of Lourdes Church
  • The beginning of the first Christian Awakening Senior Retreat of the school year, which is a pivotal moment for so many seniors in their relationships with God, family and friends, and themselves
  • The girls volleyball team won the Indiana Crossroads Conference Championship.
  • The boys tennis team had an excellent team season, and singles player Quinn Schreiber won the conference championship in his position.
  • Determination of the 2022 Father Tom Service Award recipients who will be recognized at the annual Father Tom Day Mass on the morning of Wednesday, November 9. More publicity and information will follow soon. All members of the Scecina Community are welcome to attend.
  • Finally, the new chapel looks beautiful! Finishing touches, such as the new entry doors, are expected to be complete any day – (in other words, once the doors that are on order arrive).

Please look for more information about opportunities to see and experience the new chapel in the coming weeks. We are grateful for everyone’s support who made this wonderful advancement possible.

In closing, thank you very much for your prayers and your support of all kinds. It takes a village to raise a child, educate a child, and sustain a mission as vibrant and worthy as Scecina Memorial High School!
