Lion Success story

Chris Brito

“To give you a little background about who I am… I was raised in the Bronx, more importantly the Hunts Point Community. This community just so happened to be the same place where LION Charter School opened its doors.

As you see me standing in front of you today pursuing my bachelor’s degree in economics with a 3.6 GPA, Comptroller for the Student Association at the University at Albany, Treasurer for the UAlbany Association of Latino Professionals for America student chapter, Chair of the appropriations committee, as well as an Educational Opportunity Program tutor… none of this would have been possible without the support of LION as well as the College Relief fund.” – Chris Brito, LION Class of 2016

Once a Lion, Always a Lion! Thank you everyone.
