According to class president Manny Ramon, the intent of the award is to encourage more students to experience the excellent academic and Catholic education offered at MCS.
“Our senior year is one of the most memorable times as a teenager and I’m hoping two students will also develop a sense of pride of being a MCS Knight as they complete their senior year.”
Fellow alumKnight Richard Santos adds, “We are pleased to offer this opportunity to two students for their final year at MCS. I know that I look back at my education with fond memories.”
“This is a great gesture. Thank you to the 1994 AlumKnights for their continued support of their alma mater,” said Galvin Deleon Guerrero, MCS president.
