When Providence High School held its graduation ceremony on Saturday, the class had 80 seniors, fewer students than usual graduating from the private Catholic school in Burbank, said Greg Castro, the school’s community outreach coordinator.

There were 96 Providence graduates in 2011, 98 in 2012 and 87 last year.

“They were like the little class that could,” he said this week. However, even though they make up a smaller group, they are off to big schools such as Boston College, UCLA, USC and Cal Tech.

Student Maryanne Christine Amour was named the class valedictorian and will head to UC San Diego in the fall. Meanwhile, Danielle Taylor Dominguez was the salutatorian and will attend Johns Hopkins University.

Senior Vincent Lennon McManus, bound for Cal State Northridge, won the Mother Joseph Award, which goes to students who live with the values of Mother Joseph — the first provincial superior of the Sisters of Providence in the West.

Katrin Melita Rochon, who will attend Maryland’s Goucher College, won the Christian Service Award.

The 2014 Providence High School Spirit Award went to Brandon Christopher Muir Swofford, who will attend Woodbury University.
