Members of Central Catholic's Student Alumni Association (SAA) were recently honored with the “District 1 Outstanding Emerging Organization” of the year by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). A group representing SAA recently traveled to the University of Connecticut campus for a weekend-long conference hosted by CASE.
The award - which recognizes achievements and ongoing efforts to advance education and Central Catholic - was presented by the CASE ASAP program which “celebrates extraordinary dedication to student advancement in higher education.” The SAA group is now eligible for a national award later this summer at a conference in Baltimore, Maryland.
