Mark Norman's research catalogued and mapped hundreds of gravestones in Norfolk, some dating back to the 1600's.

Xaverian senior Mark Norman recently completed his Eagle Scout project in his hometown of Norfolk. He worked for 150 hours creating an in-depth report of gravestones at Norfolk Cemetery, and recently presented the information to the town’s Historic Commission.

Mark’s research catalogued and mapped hundreds of gravestones, some dating back to the 1600’s. The project will help local residents learn more about their ancestors and the history of Norfolk.

In an interview with The Sun Chronicle, Mark explained, “I chose the project because it was interesting…history is definitely an interest of mine. I always loved history class.”

The Santa Hawk Toy Drive was a success again this year due to the generosity of our students and their families. The toys were distributed to local charities after our Christmas Liturgy.

There was plenty of Christmas spirit during the Christmas Liturgy. Students wore festive Christmas sweaters, Christmas ties, and Santa hats. Santa himself made an appearance to show his support for the Santa Hawk Charity Toy Drive.

Later, the senior class continued the Xaverian tradtion of “singing” (shouting) Christmas carols in the courtyard.
