John F. Kennedy Award

Sponsored by the Bishop Lynch Student Council

The John F. Kennedy Award is intended to recognize the individual whose life exemplifies the ideals repeatedly expressed by the 35th president of the United States.

"Our success or failure . . . will be measured by the answers to four questions:

  1. First, were we truly men (or women) of courage;
  2. Second, were we truly men (or women) of judgement;
  3. Third, were we truly men (or women) of integrity;
  4. Finally, were we truly men (or women) of dedication?"

The nominee for the JFK Award should command a unique blend of respect and affection from the Bishop Lynch community and possess qualities of patience and fortitude. He or she should model an exhilarating, if not "dashing" sense of humor and should be the kind of person who seeks an intense, exciting interest in helping others succeed. The nominee should also be the kind of person whom the Bishop Lynch community finds refreshing, uplifting, and youthful in attitude.

The JFK Award is presented each spring at the Honors Convocation. Nomination forms may be downloaded and returned to the Student Council.
