Magis Award recipients model the qualities that are the foundation of what it means to be a Cristo Rey Jesuit student. Established in 2010, the Awards were the brainstorm of our Founding President, Father TJ Martinez, S.J., along with Cristo Rey Jesuit supporters, Gwen and Larry Melody. The Melody family wanted to establish a meaningful way to recognize students for their example and leadership at Cristo Rey Jesuit, and Father Martinez asked that the awards be tied to the Graduate at Graduation values: Loving, Religious, Work Experienced, Intellectually Distinguished, Committed to Social Justice, and Open to Growth. The annual awards are open to freshmen, sophomores and juniors. The recipients are nominated by the faculty/staff. Congratulations students!
