Celebrating Holy Cross’ 2020 Graduates
Giving Thanks to God for our graduates as they move on to their next calling!
Hunter will graduate from Summit High School. He was a three year varsity volleyball player, team captain and member of several clubs. The pandemic cut short the volunteer work Hunter has done with the Summit PAL since elementary school. He has chosen to attend the University of Rhode Island, where he will major in Global Business Management. URI does not sponsor men’s volleyball as a varsity sport, but Hunter wants to tryout for the club volleyball team, which is a national power. We are all very proud of the young man he has grown up to be.
