Montini Catholic Celebrates 2017-18 Legacy Students
Posted 06/18/2018 11:54AM

Each year, Montini Catholic High School in Lombard gathers together a unique group of students for a special photo. The children represent what the school endearingly defines as their "Legacy Students" - students of alumni parents who once walked the halls of the Catholic school.

This year, seventy-three (72) children of alumni are carrying on their parents' legacy. The number represents an impressive 11.5% of the school's total student body.

"As a family-focused school, it is great to see so many alumni continue the legacy by having their own son or daughter attend our school," said President Jim Segredo. "I also believe it reflects the excellent education they experienced as Montini Catholic students!"


Lombard resident, William Barrett's youngest (of three) child, Maura, just graduated from Montini (on May 20, 2018). He reflected on the experience both as a Bronco parent and as an alumnus. "My oldest sister (Maureen Barrett '72) entered Montini in 1968, so with Maura's 2018 graduation, the school has been in our family for 50 years! My wife, Stella, and I feel we did the best we could for our kids by sending them to Montini. I've been through Montini's doors thousands of times. Bittersweet walking out after Maura's graduation, but we'll always be a part of the Montini family."

(Bill's other sister, Debbie (Barrett) Hasling, graduated from Montini in 1973.)
