Congratulations on the good work! During the Junior Awards Convocation on Thursday, June 4, St. John's honored members of the Class of 2021 for outstanding achievement in leadership, academics, co-curricular activities, and athletics. Kudos to all! 

Campus Ministry Award

Steve Rosario and Andrew Vittiglio received the Campus Service Ministry Award. It is presented to a member of the class who has consistently and authentically participated in Campus Ministry events throughout their time at the Prep and who embodies the mission of Campus Ministry and St. John's by engaging with the community and demonstrating what it means to be a person of faith and action.  

Brother Stephen and Brother Francis Award 

Jacob Katz received the Brother Stephen and Brother Francis Award. It honors two Xaverian Brothers who were responsible for the legacy of Xaverian education in the United States. As the young congregation faced challenges, the General Superior was forced to call the first Brothers back to Europe. Brother Stephen and Brother Francis remained behind and persevered in their ministry to serve the Church in Louisville. They inspired others through their leadership and commitment to life of faith, service and education. Soon other men joined the Congregation and the work of Stephen and Francis. Through the establishment of this award, the St. John’s community honors one student in each grade who follows the example of Brothers Stephen and Francis through his zeal, compassion, humility, trust and simplicity as he commits himself to excellence and falling in love with the service of God in the midst of the Prep community. 

Scott M. Connolly '07 Memorial Scholarship

Dallon Archibald received the Scott M. Connolly '07 Memorial Scholarship. It was established by the Class of 2007 to honor the legacy and memory of Scott, their friend, classmate, teammate, and brother. Throughout the year, the class raised $50,000 to create this perpetually endowed scholarship fund. This award is presented to a member of the class who best models Scott’s spirit, enthusiasm, and joy for life.

James Grabowski '01 Scholarship

Nicholas Curley received the James Grabowski '01 Scholarship. This award was established in memory of James Grabowski ’01 by his family and friends after his death in February 2004. This scholarship is awarded to a member of the current junior class who has best exhibited Jamie’s determination to achieve the highest results in all that he pursues in his life. 

Mary A. Hennessey Scholarship

Jordan Young received the Mary A. Hennessey Scholarship. This scholarship was established in 2006 in memory of Mary A. Hennessey by her husband, and trustee emeritus Paul '52; son and former trustee David ’83; and daughters Julie and Karen. The Hennesseys have a long-standing and prominent tradition of family commitment to St. John’s Prep. It was fitting that the family came together to honor Mary’s memory by establishing a scholarship presented annually to a member of the junior class who best exemplifies the qualities of the Xaverian Brothers and appreciates the role that St. John’s has played in his life. The recipient must maintain a solid record of academic achievement and has been an active participant in extracurricular activities.

Derek Hines '99 Scholarship Award

Jake DiNapoli received the Derek Hines '99 Scholarship Award. The Xaverian Brothers spirit of education has always promoted the values of excellence and zeal. As we continually strive to recognize the giftedness in each individual in the community, we recognize a student with the Derek Hines ’99 Scholarship Award. This award goes to a rising senior and recognizes a fearless leader and beloved fan favorite who always places his team first. Displaying exemplary sportsmanship, he is supremely competitive, intelligent and extraordinarily conditioned with an unmatched work ethic. The contributions of this individual, on and off the field, cannot be measured by statistics alone. This award is not based on athleticism or athletic ability, but on the qualities of sportsmanship and school spirit.

Jack Kirby '55 Alumni Association Scholarship

William Boemer received the Jack Kirby '55 Alumni Association Scholarship. This scholarship is presented annually to a junior who has demonstrated the leadership qualities and characteristics that reflect the spirit and ideals of the Alumni Association. The scholarship bears the name of one of the Prep’s most loyal and active alumni, Jack Kirby ’55, who passed away in April 2007. This year’s recipient not only impressed the scholarship committee with his obvious leadership skills, but also his accomplishments in the classroom, and commitment to community service. The Alumni Association looks forward to working with this outstanding future alumni leader.

Paul J. Famico Jr. '88 Scholarship

Christopher Dirks received the Paul J. Famico Jr. '88 Scholarship. This annual award was established in memory of Paul Famico ‘88 by his family and friends after his death in 1989. The recipient must be a graduating senior residing in Danvers who has been actively involved in the community.
