Two BCS Students Receive North Catholic Honor

When the 2021-2022 school year begins, two of the five newest North Catholic Ambassadors will be Butler Catholic graduates.   Emma Shoemaker and Brodie Martin, current 8th grade students at BCS, were each named North Catholic Student Ambassador Scholar after successfully completing a rigorous application process.

The North Catholic Scholar Program is a merit-based scholarship program aimed at recognizing the accomplishments of their incoming freshmen. Each application is assessed in three areas: academics, leadership, and service.   In order to be considered for this scholarship opportunity, students must complete all components the North Catholic admissions application, the scholarship application, and also must place in the top one-third of the High School Placement Test administered at North Catholic High School. North Catholic Student Ambassador Scholars receive a $5,000 annual scholarship for each of their 4 years at NCHS. In addition, they will participate in leadership and development opportunities each year.

“The measure of a person’s success is the result of the continuing day-to-day effort they put forth into accomplishing the task before them, with an ‘eye to the future impact’ of what they are doing now.  From the early days of being here at Butler Catholic School, Brodie Martin and Emma Shoemaker exemplified this attitude, pushing through the ‘rough times’ in schooling and embracing the opportunities to grow into the potential that God has planned for them.  As they move forward to the next level of their education, their efforts have been recognized and rewarded.  Congratulations to them and their parents on this accomplishment.   We are proud of them.”

We know Emma and Brodie will succeed in their new roles at North Catholic High School when they enter as freshmen in the fall.  With an admirable list of service, leadership and academic success at Butler Catholic, we are confident that they will shine as Ambassadors, and will carry this experience with them throughout their future academic and career paths.
