I remember looking for work opportunities while I was in high school at St Francis de Sales to help with the expense of a private education. Fast forward and in my position today, I couldn’t be more proud to help our young SFDS students who want to advance themselves while getting a good quality education. Here at Apple Chevrolet we commit ourselves to providing a valuable, maybe even life changing, work experience. I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to partner with St. Francis de Sales and Big Shoulders Fund and engage students who are on the right path toward personal success. I know from experience what a pleasure it is to work with individuals who truly understand the meaning of hard work and achievement. I believe in the Work Study Program, and I couldn’t be more proud to support and partner with SFDS on their Work Study Program. I am excited to work with students and know in my heart, programs like this are where respect, accountability, and success are born.

St. Francis de Sales High School has resided in the 10th Ward for nearly 80 years educating students from all economic backgrounds in search of a Catholic Education. St. Francis de Sales complements the other strong schools in our community. I am excited to learn that St. Francis de Sales is considering a Work Study program. Work Study programs benefit both students and businesses. The 10th Ward is a vibrant community and we want St. Francis de Sales to be part of our community for years to come. I encourage businesses and families to learn more about Work Study and share their feedback with the school.
