8th Grade Class of 2013

Holy Comforter's 8th grade class of 2013 graduated from 5 different local high schools (Leon, Lincoln, Chiles, Maclay, and JPII) and Florida Virtual School. We are so proud of their accomplishments!

  • Leon High School has 24 of our graduates: 5 are graduating summa cum laude, 1 magna cum laude; 2 cum laude; 6 with honors and 5 with distinction.
  • Lincoln High School has 1 of our graduates.
  • Chiles High School has 6 of our graduates: 2 will graduate cum laude and 1 is a commended scholar.

Other Accomplishments Worth Noting

Nick Fontela (Maclay) will graduate as the salutatorian of his class and plans to attend Southern Methodist University this fall as a Nancy Ann and Ray L. Hunt Leadership Scholars Program award winner. The Hunt Leadership Scholars Award is for full SMU tuition and fees. The award also underwrites tuition and transportation to one of SMU’s study abroad programs. Nick is also an Eagle Scout and National Merit Hispanic Scholar. Congratulations to Nick!
Angeline Tritschler (Maclay), an honors graduate, is headed to the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York. Candidates for admission must both apply directly to the academy and receive a nomination, usually from a member of Congress. Students are officers-in-training and are referred to as "cadets" or collectively as the "United States Corps of Cadets" (USCC). Tuition for cadets is fully funded by the Army in exchange for an active duty service obligation upon graduation. Best of luck to Angeline!

Rachel Rumana (Maclay) won the Best & Brightest Award in the Career/Technical category. Inspired by her friend and fellow HCES classmate Molly McCann who had a seizure at her house, Rachel started her own nonprofit organization, Strides for Seizures. The organization raises money for educational materials for newly diagnosed epilepsy patients. Rachel will graduate with honors and plans to attend the University of VirginiaLeta Ashebo (Leon) won the Best & Brightest Award in the English and Language Arts category.
