National Merit Finalist Named
Congratulations to Antoni W. “Antos” Wellisz, who has been named a National Merit Finalist.

Griffin Burchard, Form V, saw a problem and decided to fix it! Along with some Boy and Girl Scouts, Griffin observed a historic black cemetery in disrepair about three years ago. When it was time to perform an Eagle Scout project, he remembered it and knew he had an idea: he wanted to restore the historic black cemetery. Fr. Donald Fest, SSJ, the pastor of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Alexandria, called Burchard's work "an act of graciousness and honor." The story has been carried in the Washington Post, The Richmond Times-Dispatch, the Arlington Catholic Herald, and many TV news stations and the national press. Congratulations Griffin!
