Principal Brendan Conroy and President Ernie Mrozek'71 pose with the Heeney Award Winners from the second semester of the 2102-2013 academic year. Twice a year, since 1967, the St. Rita Fathers’ Club has awarded St. Rita students who earn straight A’s the previous semester with the Joseph C. Heeney Award. The award was established in the memory of Joseph Heeney, who was president of the fathers’ club for the 1967-1968 academic year, during which he passed away unexpectedly. Joseph’s son, Michael, of Heeney-Laughlin Funeral Directors, in Evergreen Park, was present at the Family Mass and breakfast on September 15 to present the award and a gift of $100 from the Fathers’ Club.
