Richie Gonzales Award:
Receiving the Gift of Life Award
In 2002, Holy Trinity lost one of their students, Richie Gonzales, due to cancer. Since then, every year Richie's family has given back to our school by awarding a student who portrays Christ-like behavior. Receiving this award is special to the recipient, but also to Richie's family.I was shocked that I was chosen out of all the great students of Holy Trinity. I am most grateful to my teachers', who nominated me and to Richie's family, who put lots of time and thought into the decision. It was a great feeling that I was the person who stood out the most to Richie's family.
