Moreau Catholic High School's Fiftieth Annual Commencement was held Sunday, May 27 at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland with 247 students graduating. Moreau Catholic President Terry Lee and Principal Lisa Tortorich conferred diplomas to students of the Class of 2018.
This year's valedictorian was Sravya Balasa and the salutatorian was Nyah Scott. Special awards of recognition were given to the following students: Moreau Catholic Theology Award - Mariella Sanding; Principal's Award - Teresa Megan Kane; Cross & Anchors Award - Ryan Lin; Brother Gary Stone Memorial Scholarship & Award - Tommy Slakey; Blessed Basil Moreau Award - Melissa Banuelos; Mariner Leadership Scholarship & Award - Nyah Scott; highest GPA - Isabelle Osorio; and second highest GPA - Noah Jacala.
A Cross & Anchors Award also was presented in memory of Mrs. Charlene "Char" Raimondi. Mrs. Raimondi passed from this life just two months ago, but in January, knowing that she was about to complete ten years of service on the Moreau Board of Trustees, the trustees decided to honor her with the Cross & Anchors Award at graduation. She was honored for her spirit and for 47 years of service to Moreau Catholic High School.
