HOBAN HEADLINES

Finalists announced in National Merit competition

Three Hoban seniors—Marilyn Icsman, Chelsea Wein and Benjamin Sutter—have advanced to finalist status in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship competition. About 1.5 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the program by taking the 2014 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which served as an initial screen of program entrants. Semifinalists represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors and are the highest-scoring entrants in each state. About 15,000 of the 16,000 semifinalists have advanced to finalist status, based on academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership and honors received. Merit Scholarship winners will be selected from the finalists in the spring of 2016.

Hoban begins observance of Lent at Ash Wednesday Mass

Students received ashes on their foreheads on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 10, as the school undertook the annual observance of Lent. Father Mike McCandless, Hoban Class of '98, celebrated an all-school Mass to begin the season of repentance in preparation for Holy Week and Easter. On Tuesday, Feb. 16, priests from the area will be in Holy Cross Chapel for students to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. During Lent, meatless meals will be served in the lunch lines on Fridays. See pictures HERE.
