Fulfilling Our Families' Dreams

Dear Friends,

When senior Abraham Rodriguez walked across the stage this June to receive his Cristo Rey diploma, he did more than graduate high school. Like so many of our students, Abraham carried with him the dreams of his parents and grandparents, becoming the first in his family to graduate from high school.

Abraham’s parents immigrated from Mexico in their teens and were unable to complete high school. Abraham reflects: “My dad came to look for a better life than the one my grandmother had. Now, my ambition is helping me to fulfill my family’s dreams that have been passed on to me.” With two younger siblings and an older sister with autism, Abraham is fulfilling his family’s dreams by being a role model and studying engineering at the University of Illinois-Champaign.
