Mary E. Kirwan Catholic Education Scholarship

Over a decade ago, the SJS Scramble Golf Tournament was introduced as a major fundraising event for our school by tournament founder, Mary Elizabeth Kirwan.  Mary remains dedicated to Catholic education and the St. John the Baptist community.  She nurtured the tournament from its infancy to the premier event it is today. In 2014 The Mary E. Kirwan Catholic Education Scholarship was established in her honor.  The scholarship is awarded annually to a student who embodies the qualities consistent with Mary’s character—demonstrating leadership, faith, service, and the pursuit of excellence.

Candidates are nominated by our faculty & staff and are asked to submit an activities resume, several letters of recommendation and undergo interviews with members of the scholarship committee.  Each year these young ladies and gentleman distinguish themselves with their talents and deeds to be exceptionally deserving and worthy of this award.  Winners each receive a $1,000 scholarship to be used for tuition for the following academic year.
