Magis Awardees Selected

The Magis Awards ceremony and dinner recognizes those students who model the qualities that are the foundation of what it means to be a Cristo Rey Jesuit student.

The awards were presented to the following outstanding young men and women for embodying these noteworthy characteristics.

Open to Growth: Alex Thomas

Religious: Emmanuel Barsallo

Intellectually Distinguished: Jerrica Francisco

Loving: Cailen Easely

Work Experienced: Christine Cooper

Committed to Justice: Mariana Lopez

Men and Women for Others: Liliana Martinez

Established in 2010, the awards were the brainstorm of Father TJ Martinez, S.J., along with Gwen and Larry Melody.  The Melody family wanted to establish a meaningful way to recognize students for their accomplishments at Cristo Rey Jesuit, and Father Martinez asked that they be tied to the Graduate at Graduation values.  The awards are given annually to underclassmen, and the recipients are nominated by the faculty and staff.
