Fall 2023 Menke Awards

Ten PVI students received the Menke award on Friday, November 10, 2023. This award is PVI’s highest honor for our student-athletes.
The Peter T. Menke Scholar-Athlete Award
(a.k.a. The Menke Award)

Peter T. Menke was our Athletic Director at Paul VI for 10 years. Sadly, he passed away in February 2011, shortly after retiring from over 40 years in education and athletics. Pete was known and loved by many for his positive attitude, big heart, intense loyalty, honesty, and fairness. The “Menke Award” is an award for a senior (or junior, if a senior is not available) who exemplifies Pete’s characteristics.

This student-athlete must:
  • Be in high academic standing
  • Be an excellent citizen
  • Have little or no disciplinary record
  • Be among the top-performing athletes in our school. 
This award is PVI’s highest honor for our student-athletes. School-wide girl and boy Menke Award winners are selected at the end of the year and announced at graduation.
