St. Paul of the Cross Parish Educational Endowment Fund Maureen McCambridge Scholarship Event
Hi SPC parents,
My name is Meghan McCamrbridge and I am on the planning committee for a party on March 3rd at St. Paul for the Maureen McCambridge Scholarship Fund in the Morello Life Center.
You may have seen some information in the Thursday Mailing or bulletin, but I wanted to provide you with some more background information.
My mom, Maureen, unexpectedly passed away 13 years ago from pneumonia. I know I am biased, but she was one of those really healthy, active, all-star moms. When she passed it was a huge shock to myself, my family, and the entire St. Paul community to say the least. She was a go-getter and was overly involved at St. Paul including hosting events, School Board, Guild, church-goer, party planner - the list goes on and on!
Back in the day, Maureen started an endowment fund and it has grown significantly in the last 12 years. The hope is for teachers and families to be able to apply for these funds if needed. There is also a scholarship in her name given to a 7th grader for their 8th grade year. Students apply in the early spring and it is awarded at mass on the last day of school. We are hoping that this event gives a jolt of enthusiasm to the scholarship and it keeps growing!
This is where the SPC community comes in:
· To the 7th grade parents, please encourage your kids to apply for the scholarship. Their teachers can answer any questions about timeline and process.
· To everyone, please come to the event! It is going to be an Italian style, family friendly dinner on March 3rd. There will be beer, wine, dinner, music and kids’ games! We hope to sell out and I hope you can make it!
· Tickets can be purchased here: https://spcsch.ejoinme.org/MyEvents/MaureenMcCambridgeScholarship/tabid/921782/Default.aspx
