In recognition of Mr. Mike Jolly and his many years of service, Mike received the 2018 John C. Monigold Christian Brothers’ Dinner Honoree Award. Mike was honored at the Annual Christian Brothers’ Dinner on April 26.
Nearly 1,000 men were in attendance to honor this fine man.
However, there is still an opportunity to honor Mike in a very meaningful way with a contribution to the Mike Jolly Scholarship Fund. These funds will be used to help attend financially needy students with Tuition Assistance. Click here to donate.
Associated with De La Salle for nearly five decades, Mike has served as a coach, teacher, and Athletic Director. He has been honored for his coaching at many levels, including the CHSL and the state coaches’ associations, and honored at the national level. Mike instituted Lacrosse at De La Salle, and led the Pilots to their first Lacrosse State Championship in 1994.
DLS President John M. Knight said, “Mike Jolly personifies all that is good about Lasallian secondary education. Mike has a heart that is filled with love, kindness, and forgiveness. Mike has touched the hearts of thousands of young people over the course of his years at De La Salle Collegiate. Additionally, there is no better colleague to serve with at De La Salle Collegiate. It is our distinct honor to be able to recognize Mike for all that he has done and continues to do for our Lasallian mission.”
Mike Wasik, ’91, Chair of the Christian Brothers’ Dinner Committee echoed Mr. Knight’s sentiments. “I couldn’t be happier about Coach Jolly being selected for the honoree this year. The honoree is always someone who exemplifies the LaSallian Mission and Mike has impacted thousands of young men who were students and athletes of his. I honestly couldn’t think of a more deserving candidate.”-
