WARWICK, RI (May 28, 2020) – Today, Bishop Hendricken High School is proud to announce the following underclassman awards from its 2020 Arts Honors Convocation.

At the end of each school year, Arts Honor Convocation is an opportunity to recognize the unique achievements of Bishop Hendricken student artists across all forms and specialties. Convocation annually includes exceptional recognition awards, parent service awards, recognition of Lady Hawks, the ensemble of the year award, program honors, excellence medals, and the Harrop Medals.

“In a year cut short and full of obstacles, these young men and women have accomplished so much and shown us that nothing can stop them from sharing their God-given gifts with the world,” said Mr. Richard Sylvia, Director of Arts. “We are humbled by their perseverance and applaud their achievements this year!”
