"My experiences at Seton High School provided me with a confidence that guides me in figuring out who I am now and who I will become,” said Witte. “From engaging classes to supportive teachers and peers to a plethora of leadership opportunities, I find that my experiences at Seton gave me the skills to thrive in college as I move on to even more exciting and challenging adventures that will shape my future."
Striebich was a four-year athlete in both volleyball and track and field. She was a member of Saints for Life, National Honor Society and Spanish Club, and she was selected as a Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Conference ambassador her sophomore year.

“Seton has helped me to prepare myself for the future, both in college classrooms and outside of them,” said Striebich. “Seton gave me opportunities to learn more about who I am as a person through clubs, sports, classes and other extracurricular activities. I'm excited to use these opportunities in college and beyond, and I’m confident that everything Seton has taught me has prepared me for the future."
