2017 Service Award Recipients Recognized



During Lent, Pope John XXIII Regional High School traditionally washes the feet of twelve students who received the esteemed Service Awards. Selected by the faculty and staff, these seniors have unselfishly served their alma mater and are truly “An Honor to the Father.” This year, the Service Award ceremony was expanded to include two faculty members, selected by the senior class for their outstanding service to the community of Pope John XXIII.

·       Lauryn Adams, daughter of Elise and Thomas Adams of Sparta

    Call Margaret Butler a renaissance woman. The Pope John XXIII Regional High School senior can talk politics, play a character on stage, score incredibly high on tests, perform science experiments, speak foreign languages, paint a picture, give her time to others, and the list goes on.
