During our first week of school, Rodrigo C. Oliveira, a St. Mary’s alum, class of 2011, and owner of D’Errico’s Market, presented his story of success, which he credits to St. Mary’s, to our juniors and seniors. Mr. Oliveira shared how he has developed his business over the years and how to have long-range goals in mind. He encouraged the students to think about living sacrificially now, so they can enjoy life later.
Mr. Oliveira also presented the school with five scholarships for students who exhibit an entrepreneurial spirit, a dedication to the school, a focus on personal growth, and innovative mindset. The Joseph P. Evangelista scholarships were presented to Grace K., Aliah W., Noah P., Cameron C., and Douglas S. in the amount of $2000.00 each.
