Senior James Lalonde Takes Second at State CYLA Scholarship Competition
CHS senior James Lalonde competed as the Diocese of Baton Rouge boy finalist in the state Catholic Youth Leadership Award (CYLA) scholarship program on Sunday, April 7 where he finished second in state.
The CYLA scholarship has been awarded annually by the Knights of Columbus since 1959. The program recognizes young Catholic men and women who are faithful role models to others in their schools, churches or community. By participating in the program, candidates are offered an opportunity to be recognized as one of the best Catholic students in their respective schools. The recognition encourages these outstanding students to hold true to their Catholic values and accept the varied leadership roles they will be asked to fill in the future.
