This week Catalyst Maria had an official ribbon cutting with Big Brothers-Big Sisters and Guggenheim on a new partnership between the three organizations! In attendance was the CEO of BBBS, members of the Guggenheim team, Catalyst staff and scholars, and numerous Bigs mentors and their scholars Littles! This has been a great venture and we look forward to continuing this partnership!

The National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society recognize outstanding scholars in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Striving to achieve academic excellence and to be models of character, scholars in these organizations are exemplars both inside and outside of school communities.
Last academic year, Catalyst Maria began chapters of NHS and NJHS in hopes of providing leadership and service opportunities to a group of often underserved students. There efforts were featured in the National Honors Society Magazine Advise- the article can be accessed here.
Great work by Ms. Fawaz, Ms. Bies, Ms. Lewis and Ms. Johnson and their scholars!
