Saint Bernard senior Paul Schartung has received a Congressional appointment to the United States Naval Academy.

Lt. Commander William Cook, Blue and Gold Officer, recognized Schartung at Saint Bernard’s honors ceremony earlier this month.

Schartung also received the Benedictine Medal of Merit Award, which recognizes a life characterized by Christian love shown through one's daily good example of true selflessness and working for the good of individuals and the community. Important qualities include: goodness of character and behavior, respect shown to all people and volunteers time and talent. This award exemplifies the Benedictine way of community life, prayer, work and study.

Schartung is the son of Connie Schartung and the late Joseph Schartung of Decatur.
