Also on hand was former St. Paul Principal Robert Gallagher, who was recognized for recently receiving the title of monsignor within the Catholic Church. Principal Frank Laurenzello, valedictorian Elena Sanchez and salutatorian Tanya Mansir spoke at the ceremony. Laurenzello said most of St. Paul’s graduating class would be going on to some form of postsecondary education – and that included Clement Gosch, 18, who recently won a $20,000 scholarship from the Santa Fe Springs Chamber of Commerce and Industrial League Destiny Fund. “That was such a big help because I wasn’t sure which school I was going to,” Gosch said. “But now I can go to the bigger one, UC Irvine, because of this money.” In his speech, Laurenzello reflected on the graduates’ “busy” senior year. “But you’ve been there for each other when times were tough,” he said. “You’ve made a great impact on the St. Paul family. “You dared to dream, and now that dream is a reality,” he added. “God bless you all.” [email protected] (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3051160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Rubly, 17, hadn’t missed a day of class in his 13 years attending St. Gregory the Great Church School and St. Paul High School. last_img read more
