MANCHESTER — The Most Reverend Peter A. Libasci, Bishop of Manchester, and Mr. David Thibault, Superintendent of Schools honored eight nine award recipients at the annual Recognizing Excellence Gala, held at the Grappone Center in Concord on Thursday, June 20. The event, now in its third year, celebrates the selfless acts of individuals who advance the mission of Catholic education in New Hampshire.

Mr. Thibault said of all those honored, “The successes of our Catholic schools would not be possible without the commitment of our educators, administrators, clergy, and lay partners in the community. Their selfless support is what allows our students to shine brighter. We are truly blessed to have such dedicated partners in our effort to make Catholic education accessible, available, and affordable to any child that desires it.”

One of the Superintendent’s Awards went to Roxanne Raeside Wilton, Headmaster at John Paul II Academy, Claremont.
