Each year Catholic Schools are invited to nominate and select a teacher to be recognized as a recipient of the Light of Learning award. Nominees are to be selected on the basis of several merits, including their instruction, leadership, Catholic example, and contributions to the school community.

This year’s recipient is Mr. Heminger, our middle school Social Studies and Reading teacher. There are many wonderful things to say about what he has added to our culture and the education of our students (the Falcon Feather award being one example of a project he helped to inspire), but this week there is an article in Today’s Catholic that tells the story well.
