Congratulations to senior Michael Baquet for being chosen as the recipient of the Raider Pride Scholarship. This scholarship is hosted by Gabe Wright '20 and his parents, Brett and Erin.
The scholarship's intention is to honor a senior who best fits several qualities such as living out the Lasallian Core Principles, representing the ideals of Archbishop Joseph Francis Rummel and St. John Baptist de La Salle, and exemplifying the Raider Code of Pride.
Michael was nominated by faculty and administrators of the school. He received the scholarship award at this year's Senior Day Program.
Congratulations to our 2019 valedictorian and salutatorian!
Named valedictorian for the commencement exercises was Daniel Michael O’Leary, the son of Darren and Patricia O’Leary of Metairie. He attended St. Ann School in Metairie, before beginning his career at Archbishop Rummel.
While attending Archbishop Rummel, O’Leary held membership in the National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta, Campus Ministry, the Latin Club, the Genesians Players, and was drum major of the Raider Band. He will attend LSU on an Academic Scholars Resident Award Scholarship. He will study Biological Sciences with a Pre-Med concentration.
Salutatorian for the Class of 2019 is Luke Nathaniel Hightower, the son of Jason Hightower and Sandy Zazulak of Kenner. He came to Archbishop Rummel from St. Philip Neri School in Metairie and has been a member of the National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta, the Bowling Team and Powerlifting Teams, the Key Club and was president of Student Ambassadors and the Latin Club.
Hightower will attend LSU in the fall to Psychology on an LSU Flagship Scholars Resident Award Scholarship.
It is with great Raider Pride that we announce senior Luke Hightower has been named a National Merit Scholar and earned a National Merit Scholarship.
Luke was named a National Merit Semifinalist and Finalist earlier this school year. As the National Merit program concludes this month, candidates who earned the highest title of Merit Scholars were announced recently. We are proud to have one of our Raiders represented in this prestigious group of scholars. Congratulations, Luke!
