Congratulations to eighth grader, Declan S.., for being chosen as Our Lady of Peace School’s Aquinas Medal winner. The Aquinas Medal is awarded to one student from each school in the Diocese who embodies the qualities we seek to instill in our students. Saint Thomas Aquinas, patron saint of scholars, combined his powerful intellect with an all-embracing love of God. Saint Thomas labored, as do our schools, to impart knowledge infused with an awareness of God to those who learned from him. The Medal is not intended as strictly an academic recognition but to make visible those young people in our schools who enflesh the spirit of the school’s mission and the philosophy of Catholic school education. Declan will be recognized at the Bishop’s Dinner in Morgantown in April.
