The Ignatian Challenge Award

The Ignatian Challenge Award recognizes individuals within our community who embrace the ideals of St. Ignatius Loyola and who reflect the characteristics and qualities inherent in a Jesuit education at St. Paul's High School. Award recipients, through their leadership and commitment to service, become examples for our students of a lived faith and philosophy of becoming men and women for others. The award is bestowed annually at the St. Paul's High School Tribute Dinner.
