Scholarship Winners Announced
By Michael Motes
Father Daniel J. OConnor, secretary for education of the Archdiocese of Atlanta, has announced the winners of the Moody-Sheehan, Monsignor Clancy, Our Lady of Lourdes and Knights of Columbus Council 660 scholarships. The selections were made by the scholarship committee of the archdiocesan board of education.
Father OConnor has also named alternates for several of the scholarships in the event that the winners change their future education plans.
Mark Maloof, a recent graduate of St. Joseph High School, has been named the recipient of the Monsignor Clancy Scholarship. The scholarship of $400 per year was set up by the Right Reverend Monsignor Francis A. Clancy, pastor of St. John the Baptist Church in New York City, in 1963. Maloof is the third recipient of this gift and plans to attend Notre Dame University.
Margaret Franck, a graduate of St. Pius X. High School who plans to attend Santa Rosa Junior College in California next fall, was awarded the Moody-Sheehan scholarship for girls. Miss Franck and her family are members of Our Lady of the Assumption parish.
Ruth Hutchins and Kathy Guzman each received $200 Our Lady of Lourdes scholarships. A $100 scholarship was awarded to Angela Thurman and Ralph Carter of Lourdes parish.
Barbara Anne Lucas of St. Joseph High School was named as an alternate for the scholarship. She will attend Georgia Institute of Technology beginning in January.
The Knights of Columbus Council 660 awards were made to the following students: Carolyn Meadows ($200); Helen Merkle and Karen Alexander ($150 each). Alternates announced by Father OConnor are Holly Nelson, Joe Ann Brown and Judith Hollis.
Another interesting scholarship note is that Michael J. OShea, nephew of Father John J. OShea, assistant pastor at the Cathedral of Christ the King, has been named recipient of a National Merit scholarship to Emory University. He was also awarded the Westinghouse Family scholarship.
