Our Class of 2022 at Feehan is a phenomenal group of leaders, scholars, athletes and citizens,” said Bishop Feehan President, Tim Sullivan ‘87. “And our three top academic students this year represent their class perfectly. This whole class, and Amy, Patrick and Grace specifically, have persisted through very challenging years, remained connected to their classmates in very unique ways, and make their soon-to-be alma mater very proud. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for this class.”
