The Nancy L. Murphy Memorial Scholarship
Congratulations to Kaleigh Desmond on being awarded The Nancy L. Murphy Memorial Scholarship at the St. Catherine of Siena 8th Grade Graduation. Kaleigh's service to her community and involvement at St. Catherine made her an ideal first ever recipient of this scholarship.
The Nancy L. Murphy Memorial Scholarship was established in 2018 in remembrance of Nancy, who held charity as her highest value. Her family wanted her ways of giving to continue by way of a scholarship that will support a student who demonstrates a high volume of service and is in need of tuition assistance. Female students from St. Catherine of Siena School were given preference to receiving the scholarship. Newport Central Catholic and St. Catherine of Siena Administration determined the recipient based off of application.
We thank Jack Murphy and family, as well as, Stiertiz Family for supporting the mission of Catholic Education at Newport Central Catholic by aiding Kaleigh and the continuation of this scholarship for years to come. Additionally, we are grateful for the support of Father Stef Bankamper and the St. Catherine of Siena School & Parish.
