Hanna’s ‘Boy of the Year’

Hanna Boys Center has named Abraham Rodriguez the 2014 Hanna Boy of the Year

The annual award goes to the boy who has demonstrated a desire to go beyond the normal requirements of the center’s program and who has upheld the highest standards in all areas of the program. The award is given in the memory of center friend and benefactor, Sgt. John V. Young, who lost his life in the line of duty.

Abraham was one of the 29 students that walked in Archbishop Hanna High School’s 2014 graduation ceremony on Friday, May 30.

Hanna Boys Center changes the lives of troubled, motivated youth through faith, education and caring, helping them grow into productive members of society.

Hanna is a “haven of hope” for troubled boys and their families. Our mission is to provide a “home away from home” for boys who are underprivileged, troubled, and seriously at-risk. We serve more than 100 boys at any given time, between ages 13 and 18, and we educate them in small classes from grades eight through twelve. Hanna believes that every boy deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, to be empowered to fulfill their maximum potential and become contributing members of society.
