Sen. Bob Kerrey at CRNYHS
On Tuesday, January 7th, Cristo Rey welcomed former Senator Bob Kerrey (D-Ne.) to speak to our students about his military background, political experience, college president tenure, and all the valuable life lessons he learned along the way. Senator Kerrey earned the Medal of Honor after his service as a Navy SEAL in Vietnam, served as Nebraska's 35th governor, served two terms in the U.S. Senate, and then moved to New York City to work as President of the New School. In his speech, Kerrey reflected on these experiences and the purpose of a life of service. "Use the lessons of the founders of this school; they were trying to do good for others, not themselves." Students participated in a Q&A with Sen. Kerrey and left with some great advice: “"Show up on time...or early, do your best no matter what, and don't complain!"
10th Annual Alumni Reunion
We were so excited to welcome our alumni back to Cristo Rey for our 10th Annual Alumni Reunion on Wednesday, January 8th. Graduates from every class were invited to join their former teachers, coaches, and mentors for a meal and lots of reminiscing about their days at CRNYHS. Tiffany Tejada, graduate of the class of 2010 and current CRNYHS Admissions Associate, was our emcee for the evening, raffling off prizes, quizzing her classmates on Cristo Rey trivia, and making sure everyone was having a good time! Almost every class since our first graduates in 2008 were represented, with an especially strong showing from our most recent graduating class of 2019. Thank you to all the alums who joined us - we’re wishing all our Lions the very best, wherever you are!
