Graduation for the Class of 2019
Posted 06/27/2019 12:05PM

The Class of 2019 received their diplomas on May 19 in front of a packed crowd in the Heider Center. Salutatorian Jonathan Schroeder served as the emcee for the event, which began with an opening prayer by Fr. Neitzke and the awarding of honorary diplomas to members of the Class of 1969.

Also during the program, senior Matthew Muellner gave the valedictorian's address, classmate Matt Anderson received the Henry L. Sullivan, SJ Award for outstanding senior and the Michael Hindelang, SJ Award for Excellence in Teaching was given to physical health and education department chair Dan Tietjen.

The Prep students were handed their diplomas by Fr. Neitzke as Head of School Jim Bopp read their names while also noting for some the names and graduating classes of their Prep alumni fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers.

Fourth-generation graduates included Michael Buckley, whose father Michael graduated in 1982 and whose grandfather James Jr. and great-grandfather James Sr. graduated 1949 and 1920. Also in the fourth generation was Matthew Kurtz. His father Steven graduated in 1988 and his grandfather John and great-grandfather Joseph graduated in 1964 and 1924.

The ceremony concluded with a traditional cap throwing by the graduates, and some took photos later with family members and friends in the Smith Atrium. The Class of 2019 received nearly $27 million in scholarship awards and will attend 60 different colleges and universities in 26 states, the District of Columbia and one foreign country.

Congratulations, guys, and best of luck going forward!
