Montini Catholic proudly awarded senior Mario Florio (above with Athletic Director Brian Casey '05) with the Lasallian college preparatory high school's annual James Kavanaugh Male Scholar/Athlete Award during their annual Founder's Day ceremonies on May 20th.
Recipients for this annual award are chosen by Montini's Athletic Department in honor of their first Athletic Director and Head Football Coach. The award is presented to a male student who has exhibited excellence in scholarship and athletic participation throughout his high school career. Mario, an Illinois State Scholar and National Honor Society member, was most recently honored earlier in May for being among Montini Catholic's 'Academic All-Stars' - earning Academic All Conference honors in two sports (Lacrosse and Football) as well as the IHSA Scholastic Recognition Award.
He is also a 2022 recipient of the President's Award for Academic Excellence. The all conference athlete (CCL) committed to playing both football and lacrosse at Lake Forest College this fall - where he will be pursuing a Business major.
