Celebrating Our Students’ Achievements, a Legacy of Holy Cross Education

It’s time to shine a light on the remarkable success stories of our students who embody the values of Holy Cross education. This year, as many of our students graduate and others continue on their educational journey, we are excited to share one particular story of excellence and dedication.

Emmanuel Epau, a shining example and pioneer scholar of the ‘Moreau Scholarship’ at St. Edwards University in Austin Texas, has been honored with both the Blessed Basil Moreau Holy Cross Mission Award and the RecWell Employee of the Year Award for his outstanding contributions in academics, extracurricular activities, and community service.

Emmanuel’s unwavering dedication to service rooted in our Motto Education for Service, leadership, and excellence has earned him recognition through these prestigious awards which we celebrate. His commitment to community engagement truly reflects the core values of the Holy Cross educational vision and it’s for this that the RecWell department made him a deserving recipient of these accolades.

What our students and alumni who recently graduated and defended their papers is the importance of embodying the values of Holy Cross education in all aspects of their lives. From their academic endeavors to their leadership roles, students like Emmanuel demonstrate intentionality, empathy, and a drive for positive change. Emmanuel’s leadership style, focused on mentorship and personal growth the values we impart in our leaners, highlights the transformative impact of fostering connections and empowering others.

Moreover, Emmanuel’s dedication to excellence and community in the RecWell department showcases his commitment to creating a sense of belonging and support for his peers. Through his innovative programs and tireless efforts, according to reliable sources Emmanuel has not only enhanced the department’s success but also cultivated a vibrant family and community spirit. Whether through organizing events or providing guidance, his contributions have been instrumental in uplifting those around him just like we encourage our learners to build family either through co-curricular or in houses or even in the dormitories where they belong.

In his research on barriers to digital communication in rural Uganda, Emmanuel displayed courage and competence in addressing complex challenges and advocating for social justice. By amplifying the voices of marginalized communities, he exemplified the spirit of preferential option for the poor and crossing boundaries thus enlightening and empowering his community.

All be said Emmanuel’s story is just one of many inspiring tales of our students who embody the values of Holy Cross education. Their academic achievements, involvement in extracurricular activities, and dedication to community engagement leave a lasting impact on our school community. Through their commitment to bridging divides, empowering others, and driving positive change, they serve as beacons of inspiration for their peers and a testament to the transformative power of informed action and shared purpose.
