ADRIANO ’17 RECEIVES MCDONALD’S YOUTH ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
May 21, 2017
On the day of his graduation, Arthur Adriano, Christian Brothers Academy Class of 2017, received the “Ray A. Kroc Youth Achievement Award.” Adriano will attend Seton Hall University in the fall.
This special recognition, named after the founder of McDonald’s Corporation, honors those students who demonstrate the characteristics that were exemplified by Ray Kroc: leadership, determination, hard work and all-around excellence.
A committee of key faculty and program administrators, in conjunction with local McDonald’s owners, select a deserving student for this recognition.
As an integral part of several student programs at CBA, a leader of the CBA Ambassadors program, a member of CBA’s Fencing team, and a major contributor to school initiatives like this year’s Middle States Colloquium, Adriano exemplifies the ideals championed by this award.
The administration, faculty, and staff wish Arthur nothing but the best as he continues on to the next step of his educational and life journey.
