As part of Union Catholic's preparation for its Class of 2021 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, we are rolling out profiles on each of the members who will be enshrined on Sept. 17 at the Shackamaxon Country Club in Scotch Plains.
In the spotlight today are Mike and Lynn D'Antico.
Mike and Lynn D’Antico became part of the Union Catholic Community in 2009 when their son Michael began his freshman year at Union Catholic.
Mike was born in Elizabeth and raised in Roselle Park, while Lynn was born in Newark and raised in Union. Mike and Lynn both came from two faith filled families. When searching for a high school for their son Michael they found Union Catholic and to the benefit of this schools community, Union Catholic found the D’Antico’s.
As busy as the D’Antico’s were running their own business, they found the time to get involved with as many things as they could at Union Catholic. With their son Michael playing baseball for the Vikings while attending
UC, Mike and Lynn became heavily involved with the Parent Athletic Club, where they served as President and led numerous fundraisers throughout the years. Mike and Lynn also served on the Small Business Initiative that helped create the first annual Union Catholic Business Network Luncheon and also helped acquire major donations in UC’s name during the schools Major Gift Initiative.
Mike is a current member of the School Consultative Board and they are very involved in UC’s facilities subcommittees. Mike and Lynn also established an endowed scholarship in the name of Elizabeth and Robert Carolan (Lynn’s parents), which is awarded to a graduating senior each year.
Mike and Lynn’s belief and commitment to the core values this school lives by is clear evidence of the influence and impact the D’Antico’s will have on this school community for years to come.
