Each year, the Archdiocese of Newark recognizes an Outstanding Catholic School Graduate from each of its schools.  An Outstanding Catholic School Graduate excels academically and actively lives out the Gospel message in word and deed.  We are pleased to announce that Cassandra George has been recognized as the recipient of this honor for St. Cassian’s Class of 2020.  

As a faithful, practicing Catholic and role model in the areas of academics, service, leadership, citizenship, and character, Cassandra is certainly deserving of this honor.  She has consistently achieved First Honors and Principal’s List recognition and, in 2019, was inducted into the National Junior Honor Society.  In addition to academic excellence, Cassandra lives out the call of her Catholic faith through servant leadership by assisting as an Altar Server at St. Cassian Church where she attends with her family and by using her gifts and talents to help others.  

In particular, Cassandra has a talent for crocheting which she has used to bless the homeless with sleeping mats, children with cancer with laphghans to use during treatment, and newborn babies with purple baby hats to raise awareness of the period of purple crying to prevent child abuse.  Blessed with strong leadership skills and a passion for helping those in need, Cassandra has also helped to teach crocheting to women at Oasis, a haven for women and children in Paterson.  Over the course of several Saturdays, Cassandra helped the women to create winter hats for themselves.  To make this project possible, yarn was provided to Oasis through donations Cassandra collected from the community.  

Please join us in congratulating Cassandra George as St. Cassian’s Class of 2020 Outstanding Catholic School Graduate!
