Quote from teacher: "John embodies the Central Catholic virtues of charity, courage, honesty and sanctity," said Panna Rupp, Spanish teacher. "He combines his faith with a keen wit, an inquisitive nature, a superior athletic ability, a fondness for and appreciation of the arts, and boundless energy. He doesn't just work hard but rather he works with a purpose. This young man is mature beyond his years and is as selfless as he is self-motivated. What a bright young star!"
