Amanda Post: “Grace Under Pressure” Awards

Ambassador: Sierra Freitas
Campus Ministry: Sophia Otto

 


Academic achievement awards honor four educators who were the prime factors in the development of USDHS. These awards are given to outstanding academic students who have maintained a consistent, cumulative grade point average of 4.0 or above.

 

Msgr. John A. Dickie was the second USDHS principal, serving from 1961 to 1967. He died in 2016. The freshmen receive the Msgr. John A. Dickie award, which is based on one semester of academic excellence. All of these students have a 4.0 or above cumulative GPA and we encourage them to continue in this manner during their academic career at CCHS.
