Our Mission Continues

Graduation day at Cristo Rey is one of my favorite events of the school year – truly a day of celebration for our community in its broadest sense. This year’s commencement ceremony was especially memorable, as we welcomed home our first alumni speaker to share remarks with the graduates. Dr. Elsa Camargo (Cristo Rey ’02), our school’s first Ph.D. recipient, offered advice and insights from her own experiences as a fellow alum.

In addition to Dr. Camargo, the gym was packed with alumni cheering on our graduates, parents watching with pride as their sons and daughters walked across stage to receive a diploma, and corporate work study supervisors celebrating all that their mentees accomplished over the last four years.

Graduation reminds us of the supporters who make the Cristo Rey dream a reality: friends make on the students of Cristo Rey: alumni who paved the way for future generations; corporate work study supervisors who serve as mentors; and donors who provide much-needed scholarship support to our students.
