WSTX Sports’ Tommy Sullivan wins Ryken Award
Congratulations to WSTX Sports’ own Tommy Sullivan who was presented the Ryken Award at the junior end-of-year assembly. More than two hundred students were recognized in the categories of Spirit of St. X awards, Academic Excellence awards, and Excellence in Academics and Athletics awards. Additionally, one student was selected from each grade as the recipient of the Ryken Award.
Sullivan, a junior, is a graduate of Holy Trinity who hit the ground running when he came to St. Xavier. As a freshman he quickly became a familiar face on WSTX as “the morning prayer guy.” From that beginning, he created a balancing act that has allowed him to be part of the St. X swim team, a key member of the morning news production, WSTX Sports Tiger Swimming Analyst, an integral member of the Student Activities Council, and a member of the National Honor Society. Tommy was also selected to be a member of the XBSS Leadership Retreat and a participant this summer in the prestigious Governor’s Scholar Program.
In the words of one of Tommy’s teachers: “His humble service, commitment, and loyalty have made him an important part of everything we have done in SAC. No job is too big or too small for him. He simply wants to do whatever he can to contribute to the life of the school.”
Cole Schuhmann and Braidon Washburn also received Ryken Awards at their end-of-year assemblies as well.
