Sen. Jeff Drozda (R-Westfield) and Rep. Jerry Torr (R-Carmel) honored St. Theodore Guerin High School yesterday in a resolution presented before the Indiana House and the Indiana Senate. The high school, located in Noblesville, was selected as one of the 2007 recipients of the Acton Institute's Catholic High School Honor Roll Award and was listed in the top 25 in the civic education category.
"I am proud to have students and staff who are working to promote the Roman Catholic faith while receiving a strong academic education," Drozda said. "St. Theodore Guerin excels in academics, Catholic identity and civic education. This award is well-deserved." Drozda is a parishioner at St. Maria Goretti in Westfield.
St. Theodore Guerin High School is the first Indianapolis-area Catholic high school to receive honor roll recognition and was one of only 16 recipients nationwide that are open enrollment schools.
"From the day the school opened its doors, it has been committed to academic success and teaching high moral standards," said Rep. Torr. "The pursuit of educational excellence shown by St. Theodore Guerin is to be commended."
Founded in 2004, St. Guerin Catholic High School is the first privately funded Catholic high school built in the Indiana in more than 30 years.
