Central Catholic Student Angelica Rodriguez Munoz Gets Full Scholarship to St. Mary’s in Lynn

East Boston Central Catholic School student Angelica Rodriguez Munoz is a shining example of where good grades and a commitment to school can get you.

Last week EBCCS Principal Robert Casaletto announced Angelica received a full four year scholarship to St. Mary’s High School in Lynn.

“East Boston Central Catholic School is very excited and proud to announce that Angelica has been named as a 2022 Garrity Scholarship recipient from St. Mary’s High School in Lynn,” said Casaletto. “The Garrity Scholars Program is a four-year, full tuition scholarship program offered by St. Mary’s that has been given to ten students entering Grade 9 out of over 150 applicants.”

The Garrity Scholars is a competitive merit award program that recognizes the best and brightest students interested in a transformative, Catholic and STEM focused education offered at St. Mary’s Lynn.

“The program is named in honor of Monsignor Paul Garrity, who was the pastor for 18 years at  St. Mary’s Parish in Lynn with responsibility for St. Mary’s Marian Division and High School,” said Casaletto. “Under his leadership, St. Mary’s Lynn was transformed and took its rightful place as one of the premier Catholic high schools in the North Shore and Monsignor Garrity is a storied and revered figure in the St. Mary’s community.”

The Garrity full tuition scholarship is the most prestigious award offered at St. Mary’s and  acknowledges excellence through focus on STEM education, personal leadership qualities, and a  commitment to the St. Mary’s pillars of excellence.

The scholarship is awarded for the duration of a four-year period of full-time enrollment, and  supersedes any previously awarded merit scholarship. The scholarship covers full tuition and  mandatory fees for four years.

“Angelica joined EBCCS in 6th grade and has been a regular on our honor roll list since arriving,” said Caseletto. “She currently serves as cantor, leading the school in song for all school liturgies.”

Angelica lives in Eastie with her mom, Natali Munoz.
