On Thursday, May 23, 2019, the 275 members of the Class of 2019 graduated during Central Catholic’s 81st Commencement Exercises in the Memorial Gymnasium as their families and friends cheered them on.
After four years at Central Catholic, the Class of 2019 will be graduating and moving on to their next adventure. Join us as we celebrate them and their accomplishments! The Baccalaureate Mass was held at St. Mary of the Assumption Church on Tuesday, May 21, and the 81st Commencement Exercises will be held in the Memorial Gymnasium on Thursday, May 23, with additional activities held throughout the week. Congratulations to members of the graduating class and also to members of the Class of 1969 on their Golden Anniversary!
It is has been my honor to watch the members of the Class of 2019 develop as caring young men and women over the past four years and to witness their many contributions to the Central Catholic family. They have learned what it means to be Marist and have demonstrated this in their words and actions both in school and in the greater community. Join us as we celebrate their accomplishments and wish them well in all they do. Doreen Keller, Principal of Central Catholic
