Eighth grader Abie Riedel has been chosen as St. Michael Parish School’s 2019 Aquinas Medal Winner, which is the highest award a student can receive from the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston.
Through the Aquinas Medal award, the diocese recognizes one student from each school at the highest academic grade level who embodies the qualities they seek to instill in them. The Medal is not intended as strictly an academic recognition but “to make visible those young people in our schools who embody the spirit of the school’s mission and the philosophy of Catholic school education.”
Abie will receive her award at the Dinner for Catholic Schools to be held on Sunday, April 7 in Morgantown.
Abie is the daughter of Rick and Kristy Riedel of Wheeling. Congratulations to Abie and the Riedel family on this wonderful honor!
