Commencement Weekend Kicks Off with Senior Dinner

Jennifer Passerino, Director of Public Relations
Last night, we at Don Bosco Prep hosted our Senior Dinner, honoring the school’s 198 Seniors and their parents. The almost 600 guests enjoyed a buffet dinner and camaraderie to begin the commencement weekend.

Awards and scholarships were handed out by our Principal, Mr. Robert Fazio, Fr. James Heuser, SDB, Director/President, Mr. Christopher Moore, Assistant Principal for Student Affairs, Ms. Laura Hollenbaugh, Assistant Principal for Academics, and Mr. Brian McAleer, Director of Athletics.

We are proud of and congratulate all of last night’s award recipients, and look forward to the rest of this weekend’s Commencement activities!
