We believe. We achieve. We roar.
These six words summarize the mission of Saint Martin of Tours School – to send forth into the world students with a deep seeded relationship with God, a passion for learning and striving to do their best, and a willingness to lead and serve those around them.
As class after class graduated on from Saint Martin, one constant has remained the same for the past 45 years: Victor Salas, the school custodian. Mr. Salas has served as a model of the school’s mission during his tenure, but the time has come for him to retire. During a community-wide celebration, students and staff shared countless memories of a man who radiates a love of God and his community. Whether he is helping an injured student to the office, assisting a teacher with a classroom project, or retrieving countless balls from the roof, Mr. Salas always models how to serve others selflessly. Part of his retirement celebration included songs, poems, videos, prayers, hand-made gifts from each class and a breakfast which drew alumni, parents, and past faculty members. Saint Martin of Tours School will miss Mr. Salas, but his strong faith, hard-working spirit, and positive attitude will live on in each student as they grow to embody the school’s mission.
