Congratulations Aidan Koon, 2016 Aquinas Medal recipient.
Aquinas Medal recipients have been chosen in recognition of their outstanding qualities of faithful discipleship, academic excellence, leadership and service to school, parish and community, reflecting the ideals of Catholic education epitomized by St. Thomas Aquinas, the Catholic patron saint of students.
The Aquinas Award is given to one student from each Catholic school in West Virginia. These recipients were honored at the annual Catholic Schools Dinner on Sunday, April 17, 2016.
The Most Reverend Michael J. Bransfield, Bishop of Wheeling-Charleston, celebrated Mass at 10:00 a.m. at St. Francis de Sales Parish in Morgantown followed by the reception and luncheon at the Waterfront Place events center.
In addition to the presentation of the Aquinas Award, the program also recognized recipients of the Bishop’s Cross; honoring individuals, groups and organizations for their dedicated service and commitment to Catholic schools.
