We chose to give to the endowed scholarship fund in our parents’ name because we believe in Catholic education. Because of our parents, we were fortunate to have the opportunity and experience of a Catholic education. Through our gift and on behalf of our parents, we wanted to provide the opportunity of an Ursuline education and experience for generations to come.
