Chrissy Carr '04

I was called a hero by many, but in my eyes I was just doing what Fontbonne has taught me, and that is to help others in need.

Officer Chrissy was stationed on Boylston Street the day of the Boston Marathon bombings and ran into the terror and confusion to help mortally wounded bystanders. 

After receiving an honorary award from Fontbonne, Chrissy addressed our students, saying,  "I cannot be more proud to call this school my Alma Mater. I cannot be more proud of how this school shaped me into the person I am today... It has been said a hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles. I was called a hero by many, but in my eyes I was just doing what Fontbonne has taught me, and that is to help others who are in need."
