Graduation Awards

ND Chaplaincy sponsors the St. James Perseverance Award which recognizes a student who showed commitment, hard work, and a continued effort to achieve despite obstacles they may have faced along the way. Similar to the message of the Apostle James, their dedication and determination to succeed will ensure their future success.
