Student Spotlight: David Eure
It’s no secret that the success of the Catholic Education Foundation is measured by our scholars’ success. This 2017-2018 school year, we have the honor of serving more than 9,000 scholars in schools across the Archdiocese. This month, CEF would like to highlight the story of one outstanding young man who was highlighted in our most recent e-newsletter. Junipero Serra High School Senior, David Eure, is the epitome of a “Serra Cavalier.”
David performs at a high level academically and has been on the Principal’s Honor Roll every year. Throughout his high school career David continues to put his studies first, while remaining connected to the school’s extra-curricular activities. David has played on the Varsity football team each year and has been selected as team captain the past two years. He also serves on the Serra L.I.F.E. Team, a religious student led group.
Serra Athletic Director Joshua Dabbs said, “David is one of the most driven, respectful, intelligent, humble servant leaders that I have had the privilege to coach.”
When David is not at school or on the field, he is working part time to help his family financially. David’s family, like many others, face financial difficulties, however, his family faces another obstacle. His mother is currently battling cancer, but through it all, David spreads faith and positivity. Serra Director of Campus Ministry, Paul Murphy, said, “David is an exceptional young man with a bright future ahead of him that is made possible in part by CEF.”
David is just one of the thousands of scholars who depend on CEF to provide access to a quality Catholic education.
