Capri Crespo, an eighth grade graduate from St. Helen School in Vero Beach, was recently recognized by the Diocese of Palm Beach Office of Catholic Schools as a Louis V. Gerstner, Jr. Distinguished Scholar. This scholarship program awards academic funds to gifted young people graduating from public or Catholic elementary schools to attend a Catholic high school. The scholarship is awarded over four years during the student’s high school career and totals $44,000.
Capri will attend John Carroll Catholic High School in Fort Pierce and expressed that she values a Catholic education because “it provides the opportunity to learn and practice our faith freely in a safe environment.”
