Our Mother of Sorrows/ St. Ignatius is extremely proud to announce three of our alumni- Tyriq Jones- Garland (St. Josephs Preparatory School), Nadir Morton-Andrews (West Catholic Preparatory High School), and Richard Tunstall (West Catholic Preparatory High School) have been selected as part of the Class of 2019 Maguire Foundation High School Student Scholarships!
Each year 150 freshman are selected for The Maguire Foundation High School Scholarship Program, which supports students through all four years of high school. There is currently a total of 658 Maguire Scholars in High School, and approximately 20 Maguire Scholars at each of the 18 High Schools partnering with the Maguire Foundation. This scholarship provides students with $3000 in renewable scholarship support.
Students selected for The Maguire Foundation High School Scholarship Program are student leaders in a variety of ways. Students are expected to maintain an average of 85 or above in 7th and 8th grade- the year that they apply for the high school scholarship. Students are also expected to have a minimum of unexcused absences and tardies, participate in on-going community service and/or participate in at least one extra-curricular activities.
OMS/SI alums who have received this amazing scholarship opportunity represent what it means to be a student-leader. We cannot wait to witness their future greatness as they move through their respective high school careers and onto college.
