This year, two West Catholic students were selected to participate in the Teen Entrepreneurship Summer Academy at Grand Valley State University’s Seidman School of Business. Rising sophomores Jacob Droski and Jacob North were accepted into the program with about 45 other students from area schools, including Rockford, Forest Hills, East Grand Rapids and City High.

Participants broke into small groups and were tasked with creating and developing a business idea that would help reduce poverty in the Greater Grand Rapids area. Jacob Droski and Jacob North were both selected as CEOs for their respective teams. After a week of participating in events, workshops, visits to startup incubators and a poverty simulation, teams presented their plans. A panel of local business leaders judged each presentation on concept and execution.

Out of the eight teams involved in the competition, our Falcon CEOs placed first and second. Jacob Droski’s team was awarded the top prize of $2,500 and Jacob North’s team was awarded second place and $1,500. Congratulations to both participants on this great achievement!

Thank you to all those who came out to support our athletic programs at the 36th Annual West Catholic Golf Classic. We had a fantastic turnout of friends, family and alumni throughout the day as 164 golfers hit the course at Western Greens. We look forward to seeing all of you again next year!

A huge thank you also goes out to our sponsors, including Falcon Sponsors: Custom Caulking, DeltaPlex, Diocesan Publications, Little Caesars Pizza and Mapes Insurance.

Congratulations to the Class of 2019! This year’s graduating class accomplished more than we could have ever imagined. They attended countless retreats, participated in close to 150 school Masses, represented West Catholic on the annual March for Life and, this year alone, earned more than 6,000 service hours. They were also one of our strongest classes academically to ever come out of West Catholic. With an average ACT score of 26 and an average SAT score of 1175, our graduating class earned the highest scores in West Michigan for all public and private schools with open admissions. As they’ve proved time and time again, with God at their side, there is nothing our graduates can’t accomplish.

It has become a tradition for our senior class to present a gift to the school. The classes of 2018 and 2019 generously donated funds for a beautiful, 6' marble statue of Mary, the Blessed Mother.  The class of 2020 also made a donation toward the statue. She will soon be placed in a prominent area to watch over our school and students. Thank you classes of 2018, 2019 and 2020 for your generosity for our campus!
