As we leave the Raider campus today for the Thanksgiving holiday break, we are grateful for many things: our Raiders, future Raiders, their families, our Raider faculty and staff, and our Raider Alumni- especially a Raider Alumnus like Andres (Chico) Gonzales ‘98.
Chico, a New Orleans Police Officer, was shot in the line of duty, and now has quadriplegia. Chico needs a special device to paint since he no longer has functional use of his hands. He donated this set of two beautifully decorated canvases to the Mother & Son Mass/Luncheon Committee for the Parade of Prizes Raffle. This year's winner was Raider Senior, Dwan Trufant.
Thank you, Chico, for your donation and reminder of what it truly means to be a part of our Raider Family! #RaiderAlumni
