Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart – Susan C. Roupe Scholarship Fund
PURPOSE OF THE FUND: OLIH is proud to award two scholarships annually at the OLIH Senior breakfast, honoring Susan C. Roupe. Susan served as our long-time Director of Religious Education.
Several years ago, she wanted to establish an annual recognition for a graduation senior who “attended Religious Education faithfully through high school and had demonstrated leadership and involvement in various activities of the parish. When she celebrated her 25th year of service at OLIH, it was decided to name the scholarship in her honor.
Additional donations were made at that time and later, after her unexpected death. This enabled the fund to grow to the point that now two annual $750 scholarships are awarded each year.
