Dayton Organizations Recognize CJ Students

Three Dayton area organizations are honoring Chaminade Julienne students with special awards for their accomplishments, volunteerism and moral character during the final three months of the 2012-13 school year.

Student Body president Clare Geraghty ‘13 was named a 2013 Student of Integrity by the BBB Center for Business and Consumer Ethics. The CJ senior is one of seven students, selected from a pool of more than 70 applicants in the Miami Valley, who will be recognized for her high moral character and strong code of ethics during the Eclipse Integrity Awards on May 14.

This special awards dinner, hosted downtown at the David H. Ponitz Center, is considered one of the most prestigious business events of the year with more than 500 business and community leaders in attendance. Geraghty, who received early acceptance to the University of Notre Dame, will be honored with a $1,000 college scholarship during the 7 p.m. presentation. BBB anounces winners >

Geraghty along with fellow classmates Bobby Krupa ‘14, Kathryn Marshall ‘13, and sisters Maya ‘13 and Mariah ‘13 Manson were among 14 area high schoolers nominated and chosen to receive the Outstanding Student Award from the Dayton United Way.

Winners, selected by the organization’s Youth Changing the World Youth Council, were honored April 19 at the Global Youth Service Day Kick-Off Celebration hosted at the YWCA Dayton on West Thrid Street.
