JPII seniors and juniors (and our special guests, alumni representatives from the Class of 2020) celebrated the Pass the Torch/Light & Truth Leadership Ceremony today!

The new Associated Student Body officers, Vivi C. and Noah A. closed the ceremony with remarks as a signal to the school that new leaders were firmly at the helm.
