First Annual High School Graduation

CRS’s first annual high school graduation scholarships were awarded May 19, 2011, at the CRS office, to commemorate the students’ achievements. Some 22 students received awards that day.  Many did not speak English or had little education when they first arrived in San Antonio as legally resettled refugees.
