2019 Aquinas Medal Honoree

Eighth grader Julia Wingett has been chosen as St. Paul School 2019 Aquinas Medal Winner, which is the highest award a student can receive from the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston.

Through the Aquinas Medal award, the diocese recognizes one student from each school at the highest academic grade level who embodies the qualities they seek to instill in them. The Medal is not intended as strictly an academic recognition but “to make visible those young people in our schools who embody the spirit of the school’s mission and the philosophy of Catholic school education.”

Julia will receive her award at the 25th annual Bishop’s Dinner for Catholic Schools on Sunday, April 7 in Morgantown.

Julia is the daughter of Cory and Lisa (Lesho) Wingett.

Congratulations to Julia and the Wingett family on this wonderful honor!

Gettysburg Address Competition

The annual Gettysburg Address Competition was held on April 30, 2018 at Brooke High School. This year a few things had changed from the previous years of the competition. The location was moved from the Brooke County Courthouse to Brooke High School and the students were allowed to have a prop to help set the mood of the speech. St. Paul School had three students compete: Mia Chiodo, Katelynd Costa, and Mia Pietranton. All 10 competitors did a wonderful job and our three sixth graders all did fantastic! In the end, Mia Pietranton won first place and brought the statue of Abraham Lincoln back to St. Paul School for the second year in a row! Special thanks to last year’s winner, Olivia Shafer, Chad Durante, and Mrs. Lorie Groh for all their help getting our students ready to be at their best. St. Paul School is so proud of the hard work put in by our students!

St. Paul School Wins the Battle of the Saints

St. Paul School went up against St. Joseph the Worker School in a “Battle of the Saints” to see which school could collect the most items measured in weight for the Community Bread Basket. The competition went from February 14th to March 14th. Non-perishable items were collected during that time. St. Paul School was able to bring in a total of 4116 pounds worth of essential items while St. Joseph the Worker School had a total of 2606 pounds. Both schools did a tremendous job of helping stock the Community Bread Basket, who gives assistance to Hancock and Brooke County residents.
