Annual Scholarship Awards

08/19/2019


Council: 10020 - No. WINDHAM

Project Description:

COUNCIL # 10020’S SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEE COORDINATED THE 2019 SCHOLARSHIP AWARD PROGRAM WHICH RESULTED IN THREE CHILDREN OF OUR PARISHIONERS RECEIVING A TOTAL OF $6500.00 IN SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS.
APPLICATIONS TO PARISHIONERS AND THEIR CHILDREN WERE MADE AVAILABLE ON MAY 18 AND 19, 2019 AT THE WEEKEND MASSES AND WERE DUE TO BE SUBMITTED TO THE COUNCIL COMMITTEE BY JUNE 30, 2019.
THE APPLICATIONS CRITERIA INCLUDED PARTICIPATION IN EXTRACURRICULAR SCHOOL RELATED ACTIVITIES, COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT ACTIVITIES AND PARISH INVOLVEMENT ACTIVITIES. IN ADDITION, EACH APPLICANT WAS ASKED TO PROVIDE A MINIMUM OF A 500 WORD ESSAY ON “THE NECESSITY AND VALUE OF VOLUNTEERISM TO COMMUNITY AND COUNTRY”.
THE SCHOLARSHIPS WERE FUNDED IN TWO WAYS. ONE, VI CONTI, THE SPOUSE OF THE LATE FRED CONTI, DONATED $5000.00 TO THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM IN HER HUSBAND’S (FRED’S) MEMORY. FRED WAS A LONGTIME, ACTIVE MEMBER OF OUR COUNCIL AND WANTED TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY UPON HIS PASSING. THE REMAINDER OF THE SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS WERE PROVIDED THRU OUR COUNCIL’S ANNUAL YARD SALE WHICH WAS CONDUCTED ON JUNE 15 AND 16, 2019 AND RAISED $2576.00
THE AWARDS WERE ANNOUNCED ON AUGUST 19,2019 AND WERE DETERMINED IN CONJUCTION WITH VI CONTI AND THE COUNCIL’S SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEE.
WE ARE VERY THANKFULL FOR THE GENEROUSITY OF THE CONTI FAMILY AND ALL WHO PARTICIPATED IN OUR COUNCIL’S ANNUAL YARD SALE WHICH MADE THESE AWARDS POSSIBLE.
