The Junipero Serra Award was presented to Fr. Tommy King '74 on Nov. 26 during a special Mass celebrating the 300th birthday of Fr. Junipero Serra. The Junipero Serra Award is the highest honor given to a Serra High School alumnus.

Fr. Tommy was honored for his unwavering support of St. Boniface Church in San Francisco's Tenderloin Neighborhood. He comforts and encourages people who are struggling every single day. Gracious and compassionate, Fr. Tommy has dedicated his life to helping those in need. His unwavering support of his community has made a significant difference in the lives of thousands of people.

"As Fr. Tommy spoke, I felt that he surrendered to his heart's desire - his call to be fully alive," said Serra Principal Barry Thornton, Ed.D. "This was the gift he offered to the Serra community - a gentle call to live a life fully alive in response to God's invitation of love. This call is unique to each person, but will always be animated in the service we offer to others, especially the less fortunate."
