Knights of Columbus St. Charles Council 2409 has announced that Kate Induni and Mathew Montz are the recipients of the group’s Catholic Youth Leadership Award for 2012.

Induni, a senior at Hahnville High School and a member of St. John the Baptist Church in Paradis, has been active with her church, the Girl Scouts where she received the Gold Award, and many organizations and activities at HHS. She is the daughter of Kurt Induni and Celeste Chiasson of Paradis and plans to attend Southeastern Louisiana University and major in early education.

Montz, also a senior at Hahnville, has been involved with youth ministry and religious education at St. Gertrude Catholic Church in Des Allemands. He is the son of Gerald and Tina Montz of Paradis. Montz plans to attend Nicholls State University in the fall and pursue a degree in biology.

The Catholic Youth Leadership Award is presented annually by KC councils nationwide.

Each individual council selected its local recipients based on church participation, academic achievement and community and school involvement.

Montz and Induni will now compete at the New Orleans area level for additional scholarships and the opportunity to earn state and national awards.
