Last month, a film crew from Channel 7 News came to Saint Joseph Prep and presented Cali Lapenta ’17 with their “Class Act” award. Mr. Nunan, her parents, and dozens of classmates surprised Cali in the Learning Commons with a standing ovation for this well-deserved honor.
Cali was recognized for her inspiring work and tireless efforts for the Dare to Dance Foundation, which helps underprivileged children attend classes at Melrose Dance Academy. Her vision and energy have allowed young girls to express themselves and gain confidence through dance.
This segment, which aired recently, featured a one-on-one profile with Cali, as well as interviews with her Robotics mentor, Ms. Nia Gipson, and her childhood friend, Lily Fabrizio ’18.
