Victoria seniors break tradition, choose Scully
featured speaker will be Father Mike Scully
, who is retiring from teaching at the high school this year.
Scully has been teaching advanced level math classes at VHS since he was appointed pastor of St. Fidelis Catholic Church down the street four years ago.
Superintendent Linda Kenne had convinced Scully, a longtime math teacher, to come to the school "for one year."
So they started seeing a lot of Scully
around school -- and liked what they saw.
"They voted unanimously to have him speak at their graduation," Kori Braun, guidance counselor at Victoria, said of Scully.
Cody Scheck will give the welcome address, Kyle Schmidt will introduce Scully
, and Andrea Dome will give the farewell speech.
A baccalaureate Mass is set for 10:30 a.m. at St. Fidelis Catholic Church
, with Scully
celebrating the Mass.
