Lauren Basham is named the 2023 Aquinas Award. The award is named for St. Thomas Aquinas, the patron saint of the Catholic schools and students. St. Thomas had a love of learning, and an all-embracing love for GOD. The Aquinas Medal commemorates his dedication and service to GOD. It is presented each year to the one student from each school who embodies the qualities of Catholic School education, excellence in learning, faithful discipleship, leadership, and service to school, parish, and the community.
Lauren has been a student at St. Francis for nine years. She is a dedicated and conscientious student who has spent most of her years at St. Francis participating in many activities and sports including volleyball, cheer, and track. She enjoys days at school especially the time spent with her friends and PreK book buddies. She is involved in the church as an altar server and always volunteers where she is needed. Outside of school, Lauren enjoys watching baseball, painting, reading, and spending time with her friends. Laurent wants to be a journalist or an English teacher and live in the Washington DC.
St. Francis de Sales Catholic School exists to provide a safe, nurturing environment for our students in their pursuit of academic achievement, moral development, and spiritual growth in Our Lord, Jesus Christ. This combination builds character and creates responsible citizens.
