It is with great sadness that we let the Archbishop Carroll community know of the passing of tenth grader Benjy Fenner. He died in his sleep this morning of a heart attack. Benjy played offensive and defensive lineman on our JV and Varsity football team. He has been a perpetually smiling presence at school.
Each year, Carroll High School is given the amazing opportunity to nominate faculty members who go above and beyond for our students to be named 'Teacher of the Year' by the Archdiocese of Washington's High School Principals Association. This year's recipient of the Veteran Teacher of the Year Award is Deacon Kenneth Lee. Clayton Willets is this year's Novice Teacher of the Year.
A beautiful celebration took place as Augustinian Hall was officially dedicated to to the memory of Philip and Hilda Mudd. A packed house witnessed Fr. Mudd speak on his the struggles his parents encountered as working class immigrants. Fr. Mudd said the drive and passion that his parents displayed to secure a better life for themselves and their descendants mirrors the sacrifice Carroll parents make to ensure their children receive a quality education. Education is the gateway to success, and Carroll has continue to prepare students for excellence.
