A look back at the 2022 Mendel Award Dinner

St. Augustine Prep proudly bestowed its highest honor, the Gregor Mendel Award upon Carmine and Dana Catalana ’76 P’07 on Thursday, October 13 at the Louis and Josephine Buondonno Forum.  The Prep Community gathered to celebrate Carmine and Dana as they joined a prominent group of community, political, business, and spiritual leaders who have been awarded the St. Augustine Prep Mendel Medal.  We proudly congratulate Carmine and Dana for their efforts in making a difference in the lives of our young men.

We also take this opportunity to thank our attendees as well as our generous event sponsors for making this year’s Mendel Dinner another memorable evening in Richland.  Relive this special evening in the history of the school through the videos, photos, and content below.

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Catalana!
