Thank You from Our Graduates

John Paul II Center is a non-profit school for students like Grant and Carlos who, along with their families, rely on the generosity of the community. Both Grant and Carlos would like to say “thank you” for supporting their educational journey.

Dear Donors,

My name is Grant Grauf. I have been a student at JPII since the age of five. I am graduating this year! Without your help I wouldn’t have been able to attend JPII.  Your help with my tuition has helped my family throughout the years.  I am grateful and feel Blessed to have attended a school like JPII.  I love my faith and celebrating mass.  I am often a cantor and have recently been trained as an altar server.  I have made many friends and love playing in the tone chime choir.  After graduation I plan on attending the adult program here at John Paul II.  Thank you again for all your dedication and commitment to me and my family.

God Bless,

Grant Grauf


Dear Donors,

My name is Carlos Camacho.  I have attended John Paul II since the age of 16.  Because of your generosity I have worked throughout the community with our job coach.  I have been provided uniforms so I look great when at school or work.  Without these opportunities, I wouldn’t have an interview for a kitchen position at the Double Tree.  This school has saved my life.  I have been able to do things and experience things that I wouldn’t have anywhere else.  I am ready to graduate and use all the skills I have acquired in the real world.  I am a success because of you and the people that have helped me at John Paul II.   I will miss everyone and appreciate all you have done for me! Thank you for your generosity and dedication to JPII and students like me.
