Four HGP seniors recognized at Archdiocese’s Honors Convocation
Four Holy Ghost Prep seniors—Mason El-Habr, Brian Gabriele, Matthew Hofmann, and Brendan Mindiak—were among the 157 students recognized for their academic achievements at the 39th annual Archdiocesan Honors Convocation held at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul in Philadelphia on Thursday, May 17.
Each of the 157 students honored was ranked in the top 3 percent of their classes at the end of the first semester of their senior years. Each student received the St. John Neumann Medal at the ceremony.
“I am so proud of these young men and their accomplishments over the past four years. They have demonstrated success in and out of the classroom and are the perfect representatives of Ghost,” says Holy Ghost Prep principal Jeff Danilak.
The four HGP honorees are all headed to schools ranked among the U.S. News and World Report’s top 50 national universities: Mason El-Habr (Princeton); Brian Gabriele (John Hopkins); Matthew Hofmann (University of Pennsylvania); and Brendan Mindiak (Georgia Tech).
Junior Alex Taylor, the president of the Holy Ghost Prep’s National Honor Society for the 2018-19 school year, served as HGP's flag bearer for the event.
