Montini Catholic Recognizes Honor Students at Annual Academic Banquet


Each year, Montini Catholic High School hosts its annual Academic Awards Banquet to honor seniors who have a achieved a cumulative GPA (Grade Point Average) of 3.5 or greater (on a 4.0 scale) and the top students from the freshman, sophomore, and junior classes.  This year, Montini Catholic congratulated 51 Seniors, 3 Juniors, 2 Sophomores, and 7 Freshmen at their Academic Awards Banquet.  Many of these students were honored for their involvement in the school’s National Honor Societies, including the French, Spanish, Thespian and Math Honor Societies.  More than half of these seniors earned the Illinois State Scholar status.  Many of these honor students are also members of the school’s 7th-in-State Math Team and Montini’s inter-scholastic athletic teams.


All students honored at the Academic Awards Banquet received the United States President’s Education Award. “This honor is a testament to their determination and commitment to excellence,” wrote US President Barack Obama. “Nothing is more important to our Nation’s long-term success than preparing our future leaders for the world they will inherit.”
