Congratulations to David Ohnstad on being selected for the 2016 Student Leadership Award. He was chosen for the honor based on the votes of his peers, members of the graduating class of 2016. He was selected from a group of four finalists during a vote held at the 2016 Senior Salute. The additional Student Leadership Award finalists included Bianca Aspin, Michael Jackson and Ari Skalisky.
President Goodwin announced David as the recipient of the award, and recognized each of the four finalists during the Student Leadership Award Ceremony on May 4 in the Benedictine Commons.
