December 3, 2017 GMT

LOWELL -- Ste. Jeanne d’Arc School and Immculate Conception School recently announced their recipients of the Peter Lynch Scholars Program.

At Ste. Jeanne d’Arc, eighth-grader Mikayla Eath, seventh-grader Adedayo Sanusi and sixth-grader Breanna Rosario are among the 192 elementary students inducted into the eighth class of Peter Lynch Scholars by the Catholic Schools Foundation.

Immaculate Conception’s honorees are Kiley Conlon, Sarah-Catherine Isaak and Mathew St. Hilaire

Lynch, known for his successful career at Fidelity Investments, is a longtime supporter of Boston’s Catholic schools and serves as chairman emeritus for the Catholic Schools Foundation. The Peter Lynch Scholars Program was established in 2010 to honor his involvement with the Catholic Schools Foundation and the Inner-City Scholarship Fund. Each Catholic elementary school selects their Peter Lynch Scholars based upon, among other criteria, grades, work ethic, and demonstrated care and concern for others in the school community and beyond.

At a recent Mass and breakfast reception at Our Lady Help of Christians Parish in Newton, Bishop Robert Reed, auxiliary bishop of Boston, inducted Mikayla, Adebayo and Breanna and their peers from across the Greater Boston Area. Bishop Reed spoke to the students about their faith and said we all have moments of victory and moments we fall short, but having a strong relationship with Jesus will allow us the strength and the ability to overcome these obstacles.
