Congratulations to Holy Trinity High School’s Class of 2020, who celebrated their commencement ceremony on May 30 with a unique car processional outside the school.

This cohort of 69 new graduates received scholarship and grant offers totaling more than $17.4 Million, an astounding achievement. In fact, seven graduates are being awarded more than $1M each in scholarships!

Among their ranks is Chick Evans Scholar Moshay Turner, Moreau Scholar Alberto Colon, Dell Scholar Abena Adu, University of Michigan Engineering Honor Scholar Angela Ponce, and five Illinois State Scholars, ranking in the top 10 percent of all students in Illinois: Moshay Turner, Aaron Jaszcor, Dung Vu, Gabriel Sheikh, and Angela Ponce-Solano. 

This fall, this class boasted two national winners in the NFTE Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge in New York City: first-place winner Aaron Trinidad and runner-up Gabriel Sheikh. The Class of 2020 also helped their teams to win seven IHSA Regional Championships plus one Sectional Championship (Moshay Turner, Girls’ Track 400 M), plus numerous competitions in mathematics, robotics, and entrepreneurship.
