Thank you, Dr. Ospino, for presenting us with the National Catholic Educational Association Youth Virtues, Valor and Vision Award this morning! We are SO proud and honored to be 2 of the 10 selected to receive this award out of 150 nominees!!!! 

We want to say again how grateful we are to the Saint Joseph School community for making this awards presentation such a memorable day for all of us. It would not have happened if Heath's teacher, Miss. Foley hadn't nominated us and Ms. Nicole Malizia Sullo hadn't recommended that she do so!

""It is our hope at SJS that this recognition can increase Harry and Heath’s great efforts to raise funds to further Hodgkin lymphoma research at Dana-Farber. The boys truly represent what we are called to do as Catholics, that is to serve others in need.  Their service helps to remind all of us of the words of Pope Francis, “The life of Jesus is a life for others.  It is a life of service.” -Deirdre Foley
