The 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient
Ms. Vikki Carr
Holy Cross of San Antonio is proud to announce that they will honor Ms. Vikki Carr with the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award at the 5th Annual President's Blue and Gold Gala Saturday, September 17, 2016. She will be the first woman to receive this prestigious award. Ms. Carr is known as the "Angel of Holy Cross" because she has been a huge supporter of Holy Cross since 1968 after learning that Holy Cross was in danger of closing its doors. Since then she has performed ten concerts benefiting Holy Cross and through the years performers such as Danny Thomas, Larry Gatlin, Trini Lopez and others have joined her on stage to benefit the school she saved. Ms. Carr was also influential in the school’s decision to change to a co-ed campus back in 2005 and even meet the first female students admitted to Holy Cross of San Antonio. Ms. Carr was also the first female to receive an honorary diploma from Holy Cross.
