Metro Kiwanis recognizes eighth graders

Posted: Friday, March 13, 2020

Metro Kiwanis recognized Huntington Catholic’s outstanding eighth graders who were selected by the Huntington Catholic School staff for each individual’s accomplishments. The students excelled in scholarship, citizenship, sportsmanship, character-building activities, faith, extra-curricular achievement and leadership.

Derek Boone, principal at Huntington Catholic, attended the meeting and dinner honoring the outstanding students. Boone spoke about the outstanding students as special people that are a shining example in the community and at Huntington Catholic. Boone thanked Huntington Metro Kiwanis for honoring these students and the parents for their support. Boone then introduced Cordelia Richert, daughter of Scott and Amy Richert, and Adam Holzinger, son of Greg and Jody Holzinger, as the outstanding eighth graders.

Richert introduced her parents Scott and Amy Richert. She thanked the Huntington Metro Kiwanis and Huntington Catholic for the recognition for this honor. Holzinger has participated in extracurricular school activities that included cross country, track and tennis. She is planning to attend Bishop Luers High School next year and take fine arts.

Holzinger introduced his parents Greg and Jody Holzinger. Holzinger thanked the Huntington Metro Kiwanis and Huntington Catholic for the recognition for this honor. He is looking forward to attending Bishop Luers High School next year and participate in football and golf.

Each student received a plaque and will have his or her name engraved on the outstanding student plaque that was made by Huntington Metro Kiwanis member Jim Dinius. The plaque is displayed in a prominent place in the school. Congratulations to each student on being an outstanding eighth grader.
