May 15, 2019: Procacci Holdings’ CEO and alumnus, J.M. Procacci, presented Camden Catholic with a check for $18,600 in support of the Estrella Naciente Scholarship Program at Camden Catholic High School.
The Estrella Naciente Scholarship Program at CCHS is a partnership between Procacci Brothers Sales Corporation, Santa Sweets Inc., and the Spanish Sports Network to provide generous tuition assistance to Hispanic students at Camden Catholic. The scholarship is funded through a pledge made by J.M. Procacci to donate $100 for every homerun hit by the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team. In 2018, the Phillies team crushed a total of 186 home runs.
During the ceremony two outstanding young women, Kayla Williams and Sabrina Radix, were recognized in front of their classmates and families as the 2019 recipients of the scholarship.
“The Estrella Naciente Scholarship continues to be a wonderful opportunity for our students and their families,” said Camden Catholic President, Mary Whipkey. Whipkey continued, “We are grateful to have the Procacci family as an integral part of the Camden Catholic community and we look forward to witnessing the dedication, motivation and success of these promising students.”
“We established Estella Naciente to create opportunities for young Hispanics students in our community,” said J.M. Procacci. He continued, “Our company values education and we are honored to support Camden Catholic.”
