Nathan Budde, NDA senior, is the Triton of the Week for the week of February 5, 2018.
Theology teacher Mrs. Katie Stanczak describes Nathan as an exceptional example of the well-rounded student that NDA strives to educate. She states, "Nathan is an exceptional example of the well-rounded student that NDA strives to educate. He is caring, academically motivated, faith centered, and respectful. He is planning to represent NDA as one of the student leaders for the Oil Team at this year's Chrism Mass. This Sacred Liturgy is during Holy Week and is when all of the oil for the Sacraments is blessed for each parish in the Diocese. Each year, NDA is offered the opportunity to send two representatives to the Oil Team. Nathan is a wonderful young man, whose future is bright, and his efforts make NDA a wonderful place to be."
