Bishop Lennon Visits NDCL

The NDCL community welcomed Bishop Richard G. Lennon to its campus on Jan. 22. During his visit, Bishop Lennon enjoyed the opportunity to meet with a group of 16 NDCL students and participate in a separate conversation with school counselors and campus ministers.

Due to the severe weather conditions in Washington, D.C., more than 50 NDCL students and faculty members (pictured below) were not able to participate in the annual March for Life this year. Instead, they joined Bishop Lennon and the entire school community in prayer at an all-school Mass for Life.

At the conclusion of the Mass, Bishop Lennon thanked our students, faculty, staff and administrators for their wonderful hospitality during his visit. As a parting gift, the Bishop gave students a day off of school, which will be observed on March 17.

Success at Science Olympiad

At last weekend’s Kenston High School Science Olympiad Invitational, NDCL students racked up some impressive results in competition against 29 talented teams northeast Ohio and Pennsylvania. The competition included 23 events in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) disciplines of biology, earth science, chemistry, physics and technology.

Seniors Joe Cermak, of Middlefield, and Zach Geizer, of Montville, had a busy afternoon earning a silver medal for Write It-Do It, fifth place in Rocks and Minerals, and eighth in Compound Machines. They finally completed their set with a silver medal to add to the gold and bronze medals they earned last year.

Two other NDCL teams placed in the tournament: senior Zach Geizer, of Montville, and junior Ben Wozniak, of Chardon, earned a fifth place in Astronomy and senior Allison Kuhar, of Concord, and sophomore Nina Berschig, of Newbury, earned a bronze medal in Boomilever.

Science teachers Pauline Cheeseman and Guy Savastano coach the Science Olympiad team.

Congratulations to the entire team on a great start in 2014.
