Nathan Schuster was awarded the Stephen T. Badin medal, the highest honor given to a member of the senior class at Badin High, at the conclusion of the Baccalaureate Mass on Wednesday, June 10, at St. Maximilian Kolbe Church in Liberty Township.
The medal is given to the senior who is voted by the faculty as the most outstanding member of the class “by every measure” of his or her high school career. Senior medals were presented at the socially-distanced Baccalaureate this year, since that was the final time the senior class would be together.

A talented quarterback for Badin, Patrick recovered from a serious knee injury and -- having moved to wide receiver as a senior -- caught a memorable TD pass in an emotional victory over top-seeded North Richmond in the 2010 playoffs. He went on to play football at the University of Cincinnati, part of the team for two Big East Championships, then transferred to Indiana State University, where injury took him out of the game of football.
