St. Mary’s Academy holds graduation at noon, Saturday, May 31, at the University of Portland Chiles Center. Valedictorians are Catherine Welgan and Sienna Li and salutatorian is Lindsey Byrne.

The celebration of seniors is possible, they know, because of the backing of donors.

The 26th annual auction, Roman Holiday, raised more than $900,000, the largest amount in the event's history and $100,000 over last year. More than 700 guests took part.

"Participation in this event helps reaffirm the belief that St. Mary's Academy transforms students' lives by combining the best features of a Catholic high school with the opportunities offered by an all-girls environment,” said Christina Friedhoff, the school’s president.

The record-breaking achievement is the culmination of hours of planning by volunteers, including the event co-chairs: Carolyn DeLany-Reif, Peggy Hinshaw, Marypat Hedberg, and Annie White.  

"We are honored and grateful to have been involved in preparing for the auction alongside so many dedicated and talented parent volunteers and the capable and hardworking staff at St. Mary's," the co-chairs said. "Countless thoughtful gestures and kind offerings blessed this event.”

Rebecca Webb, Portland Radio Project director, served as the evening's mistress of ceremonies. She kept the crowd entertained and raising their paddles high.

Among the evening's highlights was Bids for Kids, an opportunity to donate to the school's tuition assistance program. Lauren Kawa Funk, St. Mary's Academy director of admissions, led the appeal. Bids for Kids raised more than $300,000 in support of the 42 percent of St. Mary's students who receive financial aid. A $100,000 matching grant came from the B.P., Lester and Regina John Foundation, as well as Mary Boyle, a St. Mary's Academy alumna and her husband, Tim Boyle.

Here are the graduates: Juliet Anderson, Samrawit Antonio, Alexa Baldwin, Dankay Bangura, Bianca Barcenas, Ellen Barlow, Alison Bautista, Elianna Beard, Talia Berniker, Madison Blessington, Mara Bower-Leo, Blue Braun, Madeleine Breshears, Mikayla Briare, Catherine Bruder, Hannah Bryan, Arianna Busch, Lindsey Byrne, Molly Cameron, Emily Campbell, Madeleine Cane, Lindsay Cannon, Sophia Cantwell, Chiara Chandlee, Margaux Channell, Clair Charlton, Julia Chesshir, Jennifer Chu, Gabriella Cigarroa, Sarah Cold-Sigmon, Sophie Conlon, Elizabeth Culbertson, Rachel David, Zoe DeFreitas, Gillian Dockins, Katy Douglas, Margaret Driscoll, Leila Duntley, Nesha Eaton, Miranda Eisen, Sarah Elliott, Allison Emmet, Helena Enders, Madeleine Felix, Vanessa Finley, Alexandra Fitch, Lillian Flagel, Madeline Fraser, Clair Gardner, Madeleine Garrett, Victoria Gimm, Sophie Goddyn, Jamila Godil, Rebecca Goodfriend, Mikala Green, Kayla Green-Newton, April Hernandez, Ella Hickcox, Annette Holgado, Caroline Holt, Nizhoni Hopper, Lana Jewell, Zoe Johnson, Madison Jones, Rachel Jordan, Alexandra Jorgenson, Layla Kanaan, Rory Kearns, Melissa Kelly, Capreece Kelsaw, Olivia Kersey-Bronec, Gabriela Key, Grace Kirchmeier, Victoria Kirkland, Madeline Krenek, Sophie Kurschner, Madeline Landis-Croft, Michaela Lawrence, Sierra Lemon, Sienna Li, Llysa Lott, Phoebe Luc, Marie-Louise Marx, Emily Mason, Madeline Mattecheck, Katie McBee, Julia McCarthy, Ceirah McCauley, Brogan McLaughlin, Claire McLaughlin, Anne McNamara, Megan McWilliams, Ashley Melancon, Lillie Meyer, Allison Mueller, Arpana Nautiya, Grace Newsom, Alianna Noah-Rayon, Hannah Nolen, Etain O’Longaigh, Ashley Pacheco, Anna Paxson, Sophie Peel, Jordan Penca, Sharaya Penney, Alexandra Peterkort, Xiao Pfohman, Aja Porter, Laudie Porter, Samantha Pulido, Paige Rice, Grace Richmond, Anna Ritchie, Unique Robinson, Cecilia Sahnow, Amy Sandberg, Madeline Sanudo, Annalisa Schallerer, Samantha Schmiedeskamp, McKinzee Shadder, Kate Sheridan, Kate Smith, Kira Smith, Madeleine Stack, Amanda Stapp, Analies Steensma, Margaret Stern, Hayley Stutzman, Elia Sykes, Amelia Thompson, Ishanti Thompson, Samantha Tosi, Vi Tran, Georgia Tucker, Charlotte Umanoff, Rachel Van Allen, Sandra Vance, Amelia Vetto, Arielle Wahba, Lily Weber, Emma Weitzhandler, Catherine Welgan, Gwyneth Williams, Sydney Wisner, Cecelia Wooten, Elizabeth Ybarra, Margaret Zach, Kelsey Zuberbuehler, Laura Zwerling
