Finalists announced for 2024 Mr. Canisius award
Keith McShea

The Mr. Canisius Award is presented annually to the graduating senior who, in the estimation of his peers, epitomizes all that Canisius stands for.

Typically, the winner is a student who has used his heart, spirit, strength and mind to an exceptional degree in service to others and love for God. Mr. Canisius possesses and lives up to each of these characteristics.

This year's six finalists are: 

• Evan Galvin of East Aurora (East Aurora Middle School)

• Matthew Hassenfratz of Orchard Park (St. John Vianney School)

• Petros Kollidas of Clarence (Elmwood Franklin School)

• Henry Richards of Buffalo (City Honors Middle School)

• Ryan Stravino of Grand Island (Connor Middle School)

• Patrick Sullivan of Orchard Park (Orchard Park Middle School)

The six finalists have written reflections about their time at Canisius and what it means to be a candidate for this award.

The entire student body, with senior ballots carrying the most weight, votes for this award. The voting will occur next week and the winner will be announced at the Senior Awards on May 21.

This is the 63rd edition of Mr. Canisius, which has been awarded since 1962.

Students and families interested in the academic, athletic and artistic excellence only found in a Jesuit education at Canisius can learn more at our Open House on Sunday, April 28: canisiushigh/openhouse

This place is special. Let us show you why.
