Samantha Santos, HC 9th Grader, shown with Diana Barrios-Treviño & Shelly Miles on SA Living June 19.

Miss Samantha Santos, Holy Cross ninth grader, received the Viola Huge Heart Foundation scholarship on May 29.

The Foundation is named after the late Viola Barrios, founder of Los Barrios Restaurant. Her three children created the foundation soon after her death in order to preserve the good memories of their beloved mother, Viola. Today, the foundation has awarded four scholarships. Miss Santos is the fourth recipient for her dedication to her studies, community service and extracurricular activities.

“At Holy Cross, we focus on building well rounded individuals,” said Ms. Elizabeth Eguía-García,  Holy Cross Vice President of Advancement & Public Relations. “Ultimately, Holy Cross is preparing them for college and the university level. Miss Santos embodies the traits that the Viola Huge Heart Foundation seeks to support. Holy Cross is proud of her.”

“We call the students who we select for this scholarship our ‘Little Violas,'” said Diana Barrios-Treviño. “They represent my mother’s heart as well as her generous and hardworking spirit.”

Miss Santos appeared on SA Living on June 19 along with Ms. Barrios-Treviño and Ms. Eguía-García. Throughout the year, Miss Santos will be participating in various events and activities promoting and supporting the Viola Huge Heart Foundation.

“Mr. Galindo, Brother Stanley and all of us at the school are deeply grateful to the Barrios Family for their generous support of Miss Santos and for their partnership with Holy Cross,” said Ms. Eguía-García.

All 6th through 8th grade students are invited to participate!

COME FOR A DAY, A WEEK, OR MORE!

On his FIRST day, a new student who joined the class was able to build a robot and complete 3 tasks.  He has now learned Kodu and can build 2 basic games.  By having additional student participation this will allow our instructor to bring the rest of the robots and place the students in teams.
