Excerpts from The Bennet, by Michael Boehm

After all the ballots have been tallied, Nolan Hopkins has been elected as the 2017 Mr. Benedictine.  He becomes the 65th man to receive the award!  Nolan has always been a visible face inside the halls of Benedictine. He attended many football and basketball games and was an icon in the student sections.  During his four years, he participated on the baseball team for four years and lettered in his final two.  Nolan was the editor of the sports page of The Bennet in his final two years.  He volunteered his time as a member of the Key Club and was chosen as the president of the club this year.  Something Nolan will take with him from Benedictine is to “face your fears”.  “Situations don’t always end up how you want it, and life isn’t perfect.  You need to keep working and persevere to fix things,” he said.

Congratulations to this year’s finalists, Joseph Dober, Nick Duncan, Max Martin and Jonathon Stallworth.
