Prep senior Charlie Auray was awarded the Fairfield Police Union Scholarship in the name of Judge Daniel Caruso. The fund was created to honor the life work of Judge Caruso who passed away unexpectedly in February 2018. Caruso, who served as Fairfield Probate Judge, was an advocate for anyone and everyone who needed help in the community. Caruso embodied the spirit of community and civic duty, always putting service above self. He was a man of strong faith and believed in always helping those in need.
Charlie Auray was nominated based on how his life and service in his Fairfield Prep years exemplify the values and achievements of Judge Caruso. Charlie is well known for his leadership, character, positive energy and enthusiasm for service to others. Sincere and thoughtful, Charlie has been an active member of Campus Ministry at Prep as a Eucharistic Minister and by his involvement in and support of Prep’s Retreat Programs. He has not only experienced Prep’s retreats, Charlie has led the Freshman Retreat, Sophomore Retreat and Kairos Retreat. Charlie found a special passion for advocacy in pursuit of justice as a three year participant in the Ignatian Teach-in for Justice held yearly in Washington D.C. He has devoted efforts for service to the local community through Operation Hope, and in support of the Salvation Army. Determined and hardworking in the classroom, Charlie has achieved well in his academic life while balancing studies with a four year swim career. His spirit of service and dedication to community life has distinguished Charlie, and he will surely carry on this commitment as he begins his college years in the fall at Loyola University of Chicago.
