“These students have set an example not only for their peers but for the entire Saints Nation,’ Glover said. “They have demonstrated that hard work, perseverance, and a passion

for learning can lead to extraordinary results. “Their success reflects not only their dedication but also the support and guidance provided by our dedicated educators and parents. We eagerly anticipate watching these students excel in their future academic endeavors.”
