This spring, Caron volunteered at the Special Olympics Winter Games at the Yawkee Sports Training Center in Marlborough, Mass.

The daughter of Evelyn and Steven Caron, she will attend Saint Michael's College in the fall.

McQuaide appeared frequenlty on the academic honor and high honor rolls and was selected by the faculty, during his career, to receive both the Harry J. Davidson Prize for demonstrating the sincere effort to achieve to the best of his ability in all academic areas and the Thompson English Prize for achievement in English.

During his four years at the school, he ran for the cross-country team, was a member of the wrestling squad, and played golf and junior varsity lacrosse and hockey. As a senior, he was a peer counselor.

McQuaide participated in the school's popular dance program and appeared in a group performance; he also played a role in this spring's student-directed one-act play festival.

During his Winterims, McQuaide drove and cared for a team of sled dogs on a winter camping expedition in northern Minnesota and worked on a local farm, investigating methods of healthy food production and learning about animal care. In this spring's session, he worked with local entrepreneurs to experiment with starting a new business, basing his venture on a need for lids that change color to indicate when a beverage is too hot to drink.

McQuaide spent the spring semester of his junior year at The Island School in the Bahamas, an environmentally conscious community focused on sustainability and the study of marine ecology. While there, he completed a 4-mile swim as a competitor in the school's "super swim" events.

The son of Denise and Earle McQuaide, he will attend the University of Tampa.
