On Friday, October 11th, the Foundation for the Advancement of Catholic Schools hosted the 13th Annual Columbus Day Breakfast to raise scholarship funds for 14 benefiting schools in the Southern Vicariate. Former Staff Sergeant (Ret.) Johnny Joey Jones was the guest speaker and very eloquently shared his message of hope and assured us that we all have the powers to affect others positively. The event also featured fifteen Honored Students from the benefiting schools who were celebrated for their outstanding work and achievements, a very special tribute to former FACS Trustee Dr. John M. Aversa and a video message from American Idol Winner, Nick Fradiani, who shared the many blessings he received from a Catholic school education.
We are very thankful to everyone that attended and supported this wonderful event!
