Petro began as a sixth grader at CBA and immediately felt the unique connection among other students that is often referred to as “Brothers Forever.” He believes wholeheartedly that the young men he goes to school with everyday are much more than classmates.
“We all support each other, we have each other’s backs at CBA. It’s like a family. Once a part of the family, always a part of the family,” he said.
It’s a feeling of inclusion and encouragement that Petro isn’t sure he’d find anywhere else. He’s also a believer in the LaSallian traditions of academic excellence and broad co-curricular activities in a faith-filled environment.
As he looks toward next year, Chris is preparing college applications in hopes of getting into a top tier music program. He has every intention of becoming a professional musician, and there is no Plan B.
“I am going to give it 100 percent,” he says. And when he says it, you know he means it. At 17, Chris Petro has already proven to himself, his “brothers”, his teachers and his parents that his hard work and determination set him apart.
