Congratulations to former Bishop Ryan and current St. Charles credit student, Hira Waheed. She was awarded The Edge Spirit Award at Carmen’s Banquet Centre on Friday, March 29 during an evening gala dinner of over 800 people supporting the Charity of Hope. The Edge Spirit Award in memory of Morris Mercanti, recognizes an outstanding high-school aged individual that embodies the same values of Charity of Hope co-founder, Mr. Morris Mercanti. He was a business icon, a community leader, a family man, and a friend to many who needed a helping hand. Hira Waheed has merited this award for her tenacity in the face of adversity, for her resolve to work hard to overcome her life challenges and always continue to strive to reach her goals.
Hira, we are so proud of you and the inspirational young woman you are! Best wishes as you continue to pursue your hopes and dreams!
