Congratulations to our outstanding Alumni Achievers! 2013 High School Seniors John Cline and Karen Myers, St. Clare Class of 2009. John and Karen were honored at Jesuit High School and St. Mary’s Academy as valedictorians of their graduating class. Both John and Karen were also recognized as National Merit Scholars, a distinction conferred upon only .5% of 1.5 million high school seniors each year. John will be attending the University of Southern California, and Karen will be attending Washington University in St. Louis.
Here are a few words they shared about their early years at St. Clare:
“Teachers at St. Clare helped me discover a passion for learning that has stayed with me through my years at Jesuit. It is a unique place where students are challenged to do their very best at whatever they choose to do.”
John Cline, St. Clare Class of 2009 and Valedictorian, Jesuit High School Class of 2013
“St. Clare helped me develop a good work ethic that I have carried with me throughout high school. I now look forward to utilizing these skills as I continue at Washington University at St. Louis.”
Karen Myers, St. Clare Class of 2009 and Valedictorian, St. Mary’s High School Class of 2013
