The young men of La Salle Academy were all over the New York area this weekend. La Salle boys could be seen in their red sweaters at recruitment events, speaking engagements, and praying and serving at an alumni Mass.
On Saturday, two young men were in the field recruiting for the 2017-18
academic year. The young men were hard at work, telling prospective students and families why La Salle is the right choice for high school. Middle School students and their parents were able to have their questions answered, receive informational hand-outs and hear first-hand what La Salle can do for them.
Then, on Saturday night, two other La Salle young men attended Our Lady of Good Counsel for the Class of 1980 Reunion & Michael T. Carroll 9-11 Memorial Fundraiser Dinner Dance. The two young men are the recipients of the Michael Carroll 9/11 Memorial Scholarship. Both young men spoke in front of the large group of attendees to express their gratitude for their scholarships which provides the opportunity for them to attend La Salle Academy.
On Sunday morning, five La Salle young men joined a group of alumni and friends on Long Island for the 1st Annual William F. Despagna Memorial Mass, a Mass to remember the deceased friends and family in the La Salle Academy community. The young men greeted the attendees, served as alter servers during Mass, helped prepare the dining area, and met some of La Salle’s great alumni and friends.
At La Salle, students are able to receive a well-rounded education through experiential learning. We are grateful to have young men that are willing to serve. La Salle was represented in a variety of places this weekend, and we could not be prouder of our students!
