Congratulations to Brooklyn Williams for receiving The Suzanne Fogarty Scholarship award. Brooklyn, we are so proud of you and want you to always carry that kindness, school pride, and ability to make everyone smile! You can do big things, girl! #believeinit
This award is given annually to one student from Blessed Sacrament School and one student from St. Peter the Apostle School .
“The greatest gift we can give a teacher is the desire to learn.”
This award was Suzanne’s vision. She wanted to show her gratitude to Saint Peter the Apostle School and Blessed Sacrament School for the generosity and kindness they showed to her and her family.
Suzanne considered this the “Teacher’s Scholarship.” The teachers will nominate the students who exemplify what Suzanne admired most in her own students: a love and appreciation of learning.
The Suzanne Fogarty Education Award will provide each student with full tuition for one academic year (excluding fees).
