Jesuit High School is proud to recognize and profile Hayes Martin, who merited 2020 Very Reverend Father Pedro Arrupe Award ex aequo. Established in the 1970s, this award is given to the graduating senior who most exemplifies a spirit of service and whose qualities most evidently make him “a man for others.” The award was created by Jesuit president Fr. Paul Schott and Jesuit principal Fr. Harry Thompson with the intention of bringing attention to the exceptional service work done by Blue Jay students.

Hayes is the president of two nonprofit organizations: Hams for Fams, which delivers Christmas meals to those in need, and BridgeMed, which “strive[s] to establish connections between people in need and affordable healthcare providers so they may receive adequate medical care.”

Hayes will be attending Texas Christian University in the fall. Before becoming a Blue Jay, he attended Christian Brothers School. While at Jesuit, he served as the president of Campus Ministry, the service coordinator for Sodality, and manager for the Varsity and Legion baseball teams.
