Anna Rose Schutzman Scholarship Announced at Gala Event
Anna Rose Schutzman was the mother and grandmother of 14 former students. She has been a longtime supporter of NCC and the tuition assistance program. After her death, on January 9th of this year, the family of Anna Rose Schutzman requested that donations be given to the Newport Central Catholic tuition fund. To date, family and friends have contributed over $192,000. In her honor a scholarship fund has been established and each year the Anna Rose Schutzman Scholarship Fund will award $2,000 each to 12 incoming or current students for tuition assistance strictly based on need. The family and friends will continue to raise funds for these scholarships.
After students are notified of scholarship nomination, they will volunteer at the Mother Stephenia Soup Kitchen in Covington, Kentucky to receive the scholarship. This soup kitchen was a place that Anna Rose found special in her service.
