St. Anthony holds ribbon-cutting ceremony on school expansion
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A ribbon-cutting was held today, on Sept. 9, at St. Anthony school on Milwaukee's south side.
They've expanded what was just a high school, so that now both middle and high school students attend.
St. Anthony serves a lot of Latino students -- many of whom will be the first in their families to go on to college after high school.
Father Hugo Londoño has taught there for the last six years.
He says it's wonderful to see students evolve both academically and spiritually.
"It's the history behind it, 150 years educating a strong force of new generations here in Milwaukee, special because it's particular with the new waves of immigrants and also because of the larger community that we have around the area is Hispanic," said Rev. Hugo Londoño, St. Anthony's Pastor.
Last June, St. Anthony reported that everyone in their graduating class had been accepted into colleges.
