Marist School Senior Honors and Academic Awards for the Class of 2020

At Marist School's 119th Commencement in Hughes Spalding Stadium, the distribution and presentation of senior honors and academic awards recognized the many achievements of the Class of 2020.
The Marist faculty annually selects two seniors to receive the school’s highest awards. These awards are the Sedes Sapientiae Award and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Cup. The Sedes Sapientiae Award is presented to a senior who has excelled in the areas of scholarship, loyalty, and service, and who, by a vote of the faculty, most exemplifies the mission of Marist School. No greater distinction can be earned by a Marist student. Marist School Principal Mr. Kevin Mullally presented this year’s Sedes Sapientiae Award to Bill Lamm ’20.

For the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Cup Award, the Marist faculty chooses a senior who embodies the mission of Marist School, who has been involved in a variety of activities, and whose accomplishments are as likely to have been achieved in a resolute modesty as they are to have been loudly acclaimed. The recipient’s example is believed to be typical of those ideals Marist seeks to promote. The AJC Cup was presented by Mr. Bill Roche ’76, Chair of the Marist School Board of Trustees, to Cecilia Reed '20.

Bishop Joel Konzen, S.M. presented the Archbishop's Awards to David Colemen ’20 and Fallon Smith ’20. These awards are presented each year to a senior girl and boy who, while at Marist, have achieved excellence in the study of the Catholic faith, and who have given service to their school, their parishes, and their communities.

A complete listing of honors and recipients follows.
