John Paul II High School graduates its first senior class

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -
On Saturday, 16 seniors made history by becoming the first class to graduate from John Paul II Catholic High School in Greenville. 

"It’s very emotional and a happy day for all of us,” said graduating senior Duncan Patrick.

"I was able to have been with the first inaugural class. I definitely think that's something big for me," said graduating senior Tanya Rodriguez

The class of 2014 began its faith-filled journey four years ago. At the time, 23 students became the first and only class to attend the high school. Each year, more students entered the school as more grades were added. At the end of this school year the entire high school had more than 40 students. 

Bishop Michael Burbidge from The Catholic Diocese of Raleigh says it’s exciting to see this school grow. 

“This has taken us one step closer to a reality of a school that has an entire campus. What we do with the little we have is incredible, as you see with our students today, they are making us very proud," said Burbidge. 

The graduation festivities included a Baccalaureate mass, diploma ceremony, and reception.
