Michael Cristofaro Legacy Bursary

Michael Cristofaro is a principal and educational leader who has served the English-speaking community of Montreal for more than four decades. 

In the autumn of 2017, Michael was awarded the AAESQ's prestigious Distinguished Service Award for his contributions to education.
Every year, Michael takes great pride in conferring the diplomas and awards to deserving students at WHS's Convocation Ceremony.  According to him, his success is defined by the successes of those students he serves. 

One of Michael's goals in the near future is to establish a foundation to oversee the long and proud heritage of the school and the historical artefacts.  In addition, the foundation would be responsible for the management of scholarship(s) and bursar(ies) to be given in the name of alunmi and staff (past, present and future).

In order to help Michael achieve his goal of establishing this foundation and in recognition of his many years of dedicated service to WHS and to the English Montreal School Board, please consider donating to this fund to estabish the first bursary (of hopefully many!) to be overseen by Michael's dream foundation and to be offered each year in his name: The Michael Cristofaro Legacy Bursary.

Thank you for your generosity!
