History of Our Tournament

Nearly a decade ago, the SJS Scramble Golf Tournament and Scholarship Dinner was introduced as a major event for our school.  Each year, this event continues to thrive and grow.  Since its inception, the event has raised over a quarter-million dollars!  These funds are now exclusively dedicated towards providing financial assistance to families in need.  These funds are also used to enrich the lives of our students by providing enhancements to our academic programs and campus life.

Mary E. Kirwan Catholic Education Scholarship

The Mary E. Kirwan Catholic Education Scholarship was established in 2014 in honor of the founder of our Scramble Golf Tournament, Mary E. Kirwan. A woman dedicated to Catholic education and the St. John the Baptist community, Mary has nurtured this from its infancy to the premier event it is today.  A scholarship has been established that is awarded annually to a student who embodies the qualities consistent with Mary’s character—demonstrating leadership, faith, service, and the pursuit of excellence.

Scholarships were awarded this year (June 2020) to three distinguished candidates: 7th graders Divjyot Kaur, John Conor Tooley and Benjamin Spillman.  Each is the recipient of a $1,000 scholarship to be used for tuition to be applied to the 2020-21 academic year.     

The candidates were nominated by the faculty, wrote an essay, and underwent virtual interviews with members of the scholarship committee.  These young ladies and gentleman distinguished themselves with their talents and deeds to be exceptionally deserving and worthy of this award.
