Senior Kevin Saladino has embraced all four pillars of the Nazareth experience. He excels in the classroom, taking a full load of honors and AP courses as an Honor Roll student and Illinois State Scholar. Saladino also participates as a varsity athlete on both the golf and tennis teams. He represents Naz as a school ambassador with the Roadrunner Club, as a member of the National Honor Society and National English Honor Society, Math Club and Youth Initiative.
As he prepares for graduation and the next stage in his life, Saladino is grateful for the opportunities he’s found at Nazareth, saying, “The sense of community among the students and teachers here is tangible. Nazareth is small enough to get to know my teachers and classmates very well, yet big enough that there are always new people and opportunities.”
