In excess of 250 benefactors, students and administrators attended the 6th annual Scholarship Breakfast, held in Cemo Auditorium.  The event brings together donors to the St. Thomas Foundation's 100+ named scholarships as well as recipients of financial aid.

 

"This event is special because the generosity of our donors enables over 1/3rd of our students to attend St. Thomas," President Rev. Kevin Storey, C.S.B., said.  "They get to spend some time with students and possess a window into life at our school, which makes for a terrific morning."

 

Andy McStay '69 opened the event representing the Foundation Board.  He spoke about the goals and achivements of the Foundation Board, specifically recognizing Deana and Vanessa Briceño, who fully endowed a scholarship in the name of Alexander Briceño '02 last summer.  The scholarship enables a student to attend the University of Alabama with all expenses covered.

 

Seniors Mason Raven and Luis Contreras were the student speakers, each sharing their gratitude with the audience.  Both mentioned that the generosity of the many donors who give to St. Thomas perpetuates the school's rich tradition and history.  

 

"Mason and Luis represented themselves, their families and their fellow students quite well,"  Storey said.  "Seeing them develop into men who are enriched by the principles of goodness, discipline and knowledge is most satisfying for all of us at this school.  I thank them for sharing their experiences with us and know that they embody the spirit of St. Thomas students."
