“We are extremely proud of the Cabrini Dream Mentor Program,” Jim Wasukanis said, in which students from eighth grade through 12th undergo “yearly intensive counseling” to help them determine a direction for higher education and career goals. CDMP Director Greg Campbell designed it,” he said. “As a result, scholarships have gone up from a few hundred thousand dollars in the past to $4 million for this year’s 100 graduates.”

In Addition - $207,750.00 Scholarship, Award and Contest dollars have been won through the CDMP Website as reported to Mr. Campbell. See the total under the "Data" Label. In addition, the CDMP Program has been instrumental in the amount of college/school scholarships offered to senior students over the past 8 years. The amount is over $20 million dollars.
