– Freeman Staff

WAUKESHA – Catholic Memorial High School senior Paige Siehr has been named recipient of the Molly Burke Courage Award. The award, named for a girl diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2009, goes to a CMH senior who survives a battle with cancer or serious illness and who demonstrates excellence in academics, community service, extracurricular activities and faith. It carries with it a $250 scholarship.

Siehr was nominated by a fellow student, who wrote in a letter that, “As our National Honor Society president, Paige remains diligent and compassionate no matter how difficult her path to recovery from serious illness gets.” Siehr is to be honored at the CMH senior scholarship luncheon May 20 and will have her name added to a plaque hanging in the school library.
