Earlier this semester, Joel Gracia ’17 was one of seventy four students recognized at the Valero Alamo Bowl Scholarship Awards Luncheon this past December 14th at Sunset Station.
The scholarship was awarded on the basis of academic achievement, teacher recommendations, financial need, involvement in extracurricular activities and honors as well as a personal narrative. A strong preference was also given to students excelling in varsity sports.
This past summer Joel organized/raised a Stations of the Cross located in front of Holy Cross. He is also heavily involved in the arts, painting, and music. He has performed at the Holy Cross Blue and Gold Gala, Violas Ventanas, Fralo’s and Alamo Beer Co.
