    A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION recognizing St. Theodore Guerin High School for being named a 2007 Catholic High School Honor Roll award recipient.

    Whereas , the Acton Institute implemented the Catholic High School Honor Roll award program in 2004. The purpose of the award is to recognize and encourage excellence in Catholic secondary education by honoring schools that excel in academic excellence, Catholic identity, and civic education;

    Whereas, all of the approximately 1,300 Catholic High Schools in the nation are eligible to apply for the Catholic High School Honor Roll award. The Acton Institute recognizes the top 50 schools each year;


    Whereas, St. Theodore Guerin High School was selected as one of the 2007 recipients of the Catholic High School Honor Roll award and was listed in the top 25 in the civic education category;

    Whereas, St. Theodore Guerin High School, which opened in 2004, was among eleven new schools to receive the Catholic High School Honor Roll recognition in 2007. It is the first Indianapolis-area Catholic high school to earn this distinction and was one of only sixteen recipients nationwide that are open enrollment schools; and


Whereas, since opening in 2004, St. Theodore Guerin High School has shown a commitment to preparing students to be leaders through academics and forming students in the Catholic faith. We wish them continued success: Therefore,


Be it resolved by the Senate     of the General Assembly

of the State of Indiana, the House of Representatives     concurring:


    SECTION 1. That the Indiana State Senate congratulates St. Theodore Guerin High School on receiving the 2007 Catholic High School Honor Roll award.
