Congratulations to senior Anthony Schena, whose academic scholarship offers are over $616,000.
Anthony plans to attend Hope College and major in business. He also received acceptances from Albion, Aquinas, Michigan State University- Eli Broad School of Business, Oakland University, Adrian, Holy Cross, Dayton, and Xavier.
He is currently enrolled in two Advanced Placement courses: AP Biology and AP Literature and Composition. His favorite class in high school was European History. The class that he feels that has been most valuable was his Honors Anatomy and Physiology class.
Anthony cites Mr. Andrew Campbell, part of the DLS Counseling Department, as his favorite teacher. “He’s always there and helpful whether it’s about a class or something personal,” Schena said. “He always makes sure everything’s good.”
An active student outside of the classroom, Anthony was a four-year DLS tennis team member, and also a participant in both DLS Stockmarket and DLS Medical Clubs. Anthony was a part of the Lasallian Leadership team as a Freshman.
Anthony also established the Teen Mass series at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in the summer of 2021, where he received local, national, and international recognition for his leadership and innovative way to get teens back to church during the pandemic. Local teen hatches plan to encourage peers to return to Mass this summer - Detroit Catholic. The series will continue this summer, led by his sister, Audrey Schena, a sophomore at Regina High school.
He attended Our Lady Star of the Sea School, and chose to attend De La Salle for the opportunity to receive an excellent education with the opportunity to practice his faith at school.
He lives in Grosse Pointe Woods with his parents Kristy and Anthony Schena Sr (‘89), and siblings Luke Schena (‘24) and Audrey Schena.
He has worked with the foundation Kids On The Go since 2016 as both a volunteer and now as a therapy aide. Anthony enjoys helping children with special needs with the sports and recreation programs which include golf, basketball, flag football, tennis, and bike riding. Kids On The Go was founded by his mother, a Regina graduate (‘90).
