Cristo Rey Boston High School in Dorchester raised over $1.1 million during its spring fundraising campaign, which finished up at the school’s Academic Signing Day on May 3.
Nairi Norigian, Vice President of Operations at O’Neill & Associates, who has been an enthusiastic advocate for Cristo Rey Boston’s students, was honored during the event. Dr. Gerald Sheehan and June Cuomo, both longstanding volunteers at Cristo Rey Boston, were also recognized.
Cristo Rey serves 220 students, predominantly from Dorchester, Mattapan, and Roxbury. Said President Rosemary Powers: “We are incredibly proud of our students, often the first in their families to attend college. Despite challenges, our students persevere and graduate from college at three times the rate of their peers in comparable socio-economic demographics.”
