A resolution expressing the appreciation and congratulations of the people of the State of Yap to Fr. Michael Corcoran, S.J., Fr. John Mulreany, S.J., and Mr. Patrick Nolan, S.J. for their efforts and assistance with Yap Catholic High School (YCHS).

 

WHEREAS, the Catholic community in the State of Yap has been working towards and envisioning a high school, based on Catholic faith, to provide our children with a well-rounded education, with emphasis on academics and this has been the hopes and goals of numerous people in our community over a period of years; and

WHEREAS, in 2011, Yap Catholic High School (YCHS) was finally established and open after years of efforts by many communities in the State of Yap, and most especially through the hard work of Fr. Michael Corcoran, S.J., Fr. John Mulreany, S.J., and Mr. Patrick Nolan, S.J., who were kindly sent by their superiors to assist in the effort; and

WHEREAS, this new high school was opened to serve the students and people of Yap and create an opportunity for superior qualifications in secondary education and further as a college preparatory institution striving for excellence in academic standards; and

WHEREAS, in the recent 2014 evaluation by the FSM Accreditation Team, YCHS is the only school in the FSM to receive the highest rating of level 4, which means meeting and exceeding the standards of education put forth by the National Government, and Yap Catholic High School received a National Special Certificate of Achievement as a result; and

WHEREAS, the accomplishments and success of YCHS and its students are directly attributed to the hard work of the staff and faculty, under the leadership of Fr. Michael Corcoran, S.J., with the close assistance of Fr. John Mulreany, S.J., and Mr. Patrick Nolan, S.J.; and

WHEREAS, Mr. Patrick Nolan, S.J. joined the YCHS faculty in 2013 and will be leaving in 2015 to continue on his good works elsewhere; now, therefore,

BE IT RESOLVED by the Ninth Legislature of the State of Yap, First Regular Session, 2015, that the Legislature hereby expresses the appreciation and congratulations of the people of the State of Yap to Fr.
