Special congratulations to SPS graduate and Central Catholic senior, Allie Drlik. She and another Crusader, Christian Vannan, were selected by Central Catholic to win the Diocese of Youngstown's Eagle of the Cross award. They received their awards earlier this week from Bishop Bonnar at St. Columba's Cathedral in Youngstown. Allie is a great example of an SPS graduate who continued her Catholic education at Central Catholic, where she thrived and has accepted a scholarship to attend John Carroll University and play volleyball this fall. She is a great example of students who are living their faith.
