Class of 2015 Sets New Benchmarks

Bound for great places and great things, CRSM faculty, staff, parents, friends and the entire student body celebrated the successes of the Class of 2015 at a Senior Sendoff Celebration held June 5, 2015 on the day before the graduation ceremony and baccalaureate Mass.

“We’re very proud to recognize the Class of 2015 who has set some new benchmarks in CRSM school history,” Mike Odiotti, principal said. “These are benchmarks for which future classes will strive to exceed.”

The achievements include:

• 87% of the freshmen that started in the fall of 2011 are graduating.
• Scholarship offers totaling more than $10.5 million.
• 82 percent have been accepted to four-year colleges.

What’s more, Class of 2015 college acceptances include several new significant universities and colleges, including: John Hopkins, Colorado College, and Washington University, as well as loyal supporting schools including Dominican, Loyola, Marquette, Xavier, Lewis, St. Mary’s and Marion universities, and St. Norbert and Loras colleges.

In five years, if the same persistence and commitment continues, one in four students in college from Waukegan and North Chicago will be CRSM alumni, President Preston Kendall said.
