Congratulations go out to the first recipient of the Newark AOH Academic Scholarship, Shawn Butler. Shawn is a graduate of Delaware Military Acadamy and attends St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic parish along with his parents, Mike & Sharon. Shawn will apply the scholarship toward his studies at the University of Delaware.
The Newark AOH Academic Scholarship is open to high school seniors who are involved in the church communities at any of the four churches from which our division draws its members. Those churches are: Holy Angles/Saint John, Holy Family, Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, and Saint Margaret of Scotland.
Applicants must be matriculating in a two or four year accredited degree program. The award is limited to two payments of $500.00, one per semester, during the coming academic year. The payments are made directly to the institution attended by the recipient. Payments will not be made for special or shortened semesters.
The 2013 Scholarship committee was chaired by Brother George Murphy. Other Committee Members were Mike Quirk, John Lynch and Patrick Costello. The award was presented to Shawn and his parents at the LAOH-AOH Picnic at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Parish over the summer.
