Upon learning of their success, NWC President Cashman remarked, “Our community is so proud of these students, who are truly standouts. Samantha, Andrew, Erin, Justin, and Gabe are excellent role models and represent the very best of Northwest Catholic.” Cashman continued, “They exemplify ‘education of the whole person’ – the mission we speak so often at Northwest –and they touch all of our programs, from athletics to robotics to theater and more.”
Northwest Catholic congratulates Samantha Casciani, Andrew Colliton, Erin Conway, Justin DeFina and Gabriel Landi, as well as all the Commended Students across Connecticut.
