6. Berks Catholic High School Part 2

Published: May 21, 2017

Interview with John Foster, Class of 2012

This week we continue our two-part episode of the 2011 merger that created Berks Catholic High School.  We interview John Foster, a 2012 graduate and member of the first senior class.  John was a Junior at Reading Central Catholic High School when he heard the news that his school would merge with Holy Name High School. John participated as part of the student council and the transition team to form Berks Catholic. As the President of the Inaugural Senior Class, John has an impressive perspective on the transition and his role.  John’s 16-year formation in Catholic education inspired him to stay active and become an advocate for Catholic schools.  John and his classmates will celebrate their 5-year class reunion this summer.

Six years ago, as a member of the transition team, John spoke out as an advocate for the new Berks Catholic High School and even then he was a student who stood out among the crowd.  See YouTube Video Part One and Part Two of John’s witness for Berks Catholic back in 2011. Read an article by WFMZ about Berks Catholic’s exciting expansion project.
