Kent Thiry Foundation Scholarship Awarded to Chris Silva ’18
DaVita is a healthcare provider for End Stage Renal Disease patients. This award is named after our Mayor (CEO) Kent Thiry, who founded this scholarship to help the families of our hard working and dedicated teammates.
Chris Silva (Sr.) is one of the nurses at the Da Vita clinic. He and his son applied for this prestigious scholarship about 3-6 months ago and were awarded $2,000 toward academics. Chris Sr. is one of my best teammates and exemplifies leadership, compassion and steadfast morals. This foundation that Chris Sr. has set for his son has molded Chris Jr. to be an overwhelming favorite to win this award. Chris Jr. is a scholar in every significance of the word as his father brags to his teammates and his patients DAILY about his son’s achievements. I am proud to see such a man grow in the Holy Cross system as I know Chris will be one of those graduates that people look up to and remember.
