Congratulations to our Lions from the Class of 2023 who have been recognized for their outstanding achievements this year!

Educator of the Year

It is our pleasure to announce that Mr. Boris Bastidas is this year’s Educator of the Year! Mr. Bastidas has worked at CMCP for 4 years and is the Social Studies Department Chair. He also serves as club moderator for Mock Trial and Model UN.

“I’m very honored and appreciative of all the support from the CMCP community; it is overwhelming to have been awarded with this kind of recognition. I appreciate that I’m winning this award in 2023 as the Class of 2023 is graduating. I first arrived at CMCP as a first-year teacher when these seniors were freshmen, and I taught many of them that year and once again this past year. There’s so many moments I cherish leading up to this award that involves them.”
- Mr. Bastidas

Mr. Bastidas had the privilege of speaking to the Class of 2023 at Commencement. He spoke about how he shared many firsts at CMCP with the Class of 2023. Their first school mass, pep rally, zoom and hybrid learning - just to name a few! Mr. Bastidas was honored to be recognized this year as the class that meant so much to him graduated. When addressing the Class of 2023, he said “if any of you feel a little anxious about what’s next, just know I’m sharing that too. I’ve never known those hallways and classrooms without you guys being there, and so it’s not easy for me to accept that you won’t be here anymore.” He offered words of encouragement to the graduates by reminding them that they can always reinvent themselves, set out a new course, and try something they never imagined they could do. With that, we second Mr. Bastidas, in saying congrats, thank you, good luck, and see you soon as alumni to the Class of 2023.

Congratulations to Mr. Bastidas! Your #LionPride thanks you for all your hard work and dedication in and out of the classroom to help our Lions succeed.

Miami Herald Silver Knight Awards
CMCP is proud to recognize Arianna Rosa ‘23 as a 2023 Miami Herald Silver Knight Honorable Mention recipient in the Drama category. Arianna was nominated for her work at Oasis Church of South Florida where she teaches children’s ministry. In her role she teaches students the meaning of worship and how to worship through classroom activities that are age appropriate for kindergarten through fifth-graders. She applies lessons that she has learned in high school ministry to create interactive and fun child friendly lessons.

“I volunteer with children to let them know they can have fun while learning how they each can make a difference wherever they go and with whatever they do. Regardless of what I am doing with the children, whether it is teaching them worship, playing games, creating dances or a class lesson, I always show them how their faith and beliefs can be applied in their life and how they can make a difference in our world in a positive way.” -Arianna R. ‘23

On Thursday, May 25, 30 award winners and 90 Honorable Mentions were announced out of 750 nominees at the Silver Knight Awards Ceremony. Congratulations to Arianna and all of our Silver Knight nominees on this outstanding achievement and your dedication to work Toward A Better Word.
