On November 7, Cristo Rey hosted guests from 13 of our school’s 32 scholarship providers for the fifth annual Scholarship Breakfast. Each year, this event recognizes students for their efforts, beyond Cristo Rey's already high expectations, and the generous people who help them live up to those expectations. This year, approximately one-third of Cristo Rey students will receive more than $800,000 in scholarship awards. Combined with the Corporate Work Study Program, these scholarships allow many of our students to proudly pay the entire cost of their high school education.
Thank you to our friends from the Bautista Memorial Scholarship Fund, Big Shoulders Fund, BMO Bank Latino Alliance, Cuneo Foundation, Daniel Murphy Scholarship Fund, HFS Chicago Scholars, Installation Specialists Inc., the Macina family, the May family, Metro Achievement Center, Mr. Richard Moore, the Nemeth family, and Quigley Scholars for joining us and for investing so personally in our students!
