Submitted by Diana Chamorro, Sacred Heart Schools

Sacred Heart Preparatory graduated 136 students on May 23 at the 116th commencement ceremony at the Sacred Heart Schools campus in Atherton.

Alexandra Bourdillon and John Carter Kremer were named SHP's valedictorians and both will be enrolling at Stanford University in the fall. The class Salutatorian was Alexander Mitchell and he will attend Georgetown University.

The recipients of the Blue Ribbons, the highest honor Sacred Heart Prep bestows upon a senior at graduation, were: Goal I (a personal and active faith in God), Colleen Hamilton and Diana Marin-Melo; Goal II (a deep respect for intellectual values), Alexandra Bourdillon and Katherine Lim; Goal III (a social awareness which impels to action), Jessica Bird and Ruth Gomez; Goal IV (the building of a community as a Christian value), Alexander Mitchell and Joseph Putnam; and Goal V (personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom), John (Jack) Wise.

Dark Blue Ribbons, awarded to students who embody all five goals, were presented to Juan (Ricky) Grau and Ashley Simmons.

Graduates will attend 66 different post-secondary institutions. Twenty-one graduates plan to attend Catholic colleges/universities, 53 students will attend colleges in California, and 83 are enrolling in colleges out of state.

Twenty-two students have committed to play collegiate athletics and five were admitted to colleges based on their visual and performing arts abilities.

Twenty-eight students have been recognized by the National Merit Scholarship program and 20 have been on the Sacred Heart campus since kindergarten.
