September 2013 ResConnection
Congratulations 2013 Res Scholars!
Resurrection College Prep High School honored the top students in each class during the August 22, 2013 Back to School Liturgy, which marked the first all-school gathering for the new school year. The top ten students in the sophomore, junior and senior classes and the incoming freshmen with the ten highest entrance exam scores were named as Res Scholars.
The Class of 2017 Res Scholars are pictured with Barbara VanderKloot of the George and June Block Foundation. Special thanks to the George and June Block Foundation for funding scholarship awards to these high achieving freshmen.
Congratulations to all the Res Scholars!
