Marquette Confers Diplomas Upon Class of 2024

32-Member Class Celebrated at Wednesday Evening's Commencement Ceremony

A graduation day that opened with poignant remarks from Dr. Meredith (Burns) Brauer '01 followed with spiritual guidance from Most Reverend Bishop Robert J. McClory and concluded with the presentation of diplomas. Marquette Catholic High School bid farewell to its Class of 2024 Wednesday evening, but not before the grandest of ceremonies inside the Richard & Louise Scholl Student Center.


Principal Katie Collignon delivered the opening remarks before senior Alyse Thomas addressed the crowd. Director of public relations Brad Collignon presented the graduates while Katie Collignon and superintendent of schools Colleen J. Brewer, Ed.D. distributed the diplomas.


Marquette Performing Arts director Amy Crane, who was also honored for her 25th year of service to the school, guided the Marquette Singers as they performed "I Lived" by OneRepublic. Senior Saniya Singh presented a final address on behalf of the graduates. 


Miguel Canelo, president of Marquette's National Honor Society chapter, led the graduates in the turning of their tassels. "Pomp and Circumstance" then played as Marquette's newest alumni class recessed from the Scholl Center.


Marquette boasted 10 summa cum laude graduates, a distinction marked by a cumulative grade-point average of 4.0 or higher. As a cohort, the 32-member class tallied 750 dual credits while enrolled at Marquette. Furthermore, the Class of 2024 was offered a combined $1.8 million dollars in college scholarships.


The faculty and staff of Marquette Catholic High School extend their best wishes to the Class of 2024 and their families.
