Two St. James Academy students receive Verbum Dei Award

St. James Academy students Scott Kazmierowicz and Aliea Clark, grade 8, recently received the Verbum Dei Award at Mater Dei Catholic High School.

The award recognizes students who demonstrate “Christ-like leadership, a positive attitude, compassion for others, role-model Jesus Christ, live the Ten Commandments, assist others and are selfless in their actions.”

Principals from each of 42 elementary schools in the Diocese of San Diego were invited to send the names of two students, a young man and a young woman, to receive the honor.

St. James junior high teacher Leslie Beswick accompanied the students to the award ceremony.
