2019 Philadelphia Phillies All Star Student
Christopher DeCarvalho Chanez has been chosen as a 2019 Phillies All Star Student. He will be recognized on May 15th at Citizen Bank Park during the Philadelphia Phillies Game. Chris displays Petway's character traits in all that he does. He demonstrates true compassion when he visits Ms. Shropshire’s classroom. Chris gives up his recess time as part of Petway's CARES program to provide positive interactions and engagement to the intellectually disabled students, who are mostly non-verbal with multiple handicaps. Although these children are remarkable children in their own special way, they face difficulties that many people cannot understand. However, Chris has the innate and spectacular ability to connect with these children and make them feel loved. He has become an essential part of Ms. Shropshire's classroom; his new friends excitedly anticipate his arrival almost daily.
In addition to his exceptional kindness, Chris maintains an A average. He is a well rounded student participating in after-school activities such as Chorus and theater. Chris has the potential to accomplish wonderful things in his life. He is most deserving of this special recognition.
