Meet a Cristero Champion!
This month, Cristo Rey highlights Leadership Advisory Council member and founding recurring supporter Adam Ciborowski – a Cristero Champion! A supporter of the Cristo Rey mission since 2015, Adam is a Milwaukee native who moved to Chicago to work at Ernst & Young and attend the University of Chicago. He is currently a partner at RCP Advisors.
Adam was introduced to Cristo Rey by David B., a colleague at RCP Advisors, whose family has been involved with Cristo Rey since its founding years. Adam recalls, “I first attended the golf event – I stayed for dinner and learned about the mission and the stories at the event. I have been involved since. It is funny how a couple of years later I was chairing the same event with Connor and Nick and the other guys – it was fun.”
Adam, along with other Leadership Advisory Council (LAC) members, chaired the Golf event in 2016 and 2017 – raising nearly $300,000 for student scholarships and sharing the mission of Cristo Rey with new friends.
When asked what motivated him to stay involved, he responded: “The school mission. Seeing where students start, how they are growing, where they are attending college – it is exciting to see the mission at work.”
The Cristo Rey mission hits close to home for Adam. His wife was a recipient of a scholarship that opened opportunities and impacted her life greatly, opportunities like the ones Cristo Rey provides, especially with its work-study program.
Adam’s call to action: “The more people you can get involved, the more people who can give financially, the more job partners will help advance these students, the more Cristo Rey students can find a career or path in life because they were exposed to it and given the opportunity.”
Life for Adam and his wife Yeny became a little more hectic with the arrival of their little girl, but their commitment to Cristo Rey is ongoing. As monthly supporters, they continue to support the mission they love without having to worry about remembering to make a donation. We are thankful to both Adam and Yeny for being Cristero Champions and advancing the mission of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School every day.
Join Adam, who doubled his monthly donation, and become a Cristero Champion today!
