Veritas Award

The Veritas Award is awarded annually to one or more Muldoon, Boylan, or St. Thomas Alumni who model the essence of Catholic secondary education: lives the truth (Veritas) as taught and lived by Jesus Christ. This graduate may be one of great standing in his or her community or one who serves his fellows, family, or community through quiet dedication to Christian ideals. Through a life of service, this person uses his or her gifts to further Christ's teachings and is thereby an inspiration to peers as well as to students of Boylan Catholic High School. This graduate must be at least five years removed from high school. Posthumous nominations will be accepted.

The Veritas Award winner is recognized at graduation. He or she may also be invited to other Boylan events throughout the year to be recognized as the Veritas Award Winner. This includes, but is not limited to, the Alumni Awards Night on the Thursday of Homecoming Week.
