Ines Soto and Ricky Alaniz
There's no place like home. . .at Cristo Rey


Alumni Spotlight

Some of our young alumni are living proof to the old adage, "There's no place like home."
Cristo Rey alumni and college grads Ines Soto and Ricky Alaniz learned to 'look forward' and work for the good that was yet to be.

With degree in hand from the University of Missouri - Kansas City, Soto figured out that looking forward gave her the skills and abilities to look back on her own journey. Today, she mentors, chAlaniz - Sotoeer leads, and problem solves with young Cristo Rey alumni who are in college at Penn Valley Community College and UMKC. Soto is evaluating the next step in her educational journey, so stay tuned!

Alaniz points to Cristo Rey as the source of his grit to get through college and enter grad school. Alaniz spent the 2016-17 school year at Cristo Rey teaching Computer Applications. His ultimate goal? To earn his Master's in Education and inspire other young people to complete their educations
. As evidence of his commitment to helping others complete their educations, Alaniz walked onto the stage at Dancing with the Kansas City Stars, gave his testimonial and helped raise more than $130,000 for the Sister Vickie Perkins Scholarship Fund. . .which benefits current students at Cristo Rey. Way to go, Ricky!
