About the Scholarship: The Legacy Fund Scholarship was established in February 2020. The fund was established with gifts to Holy Cross Catholic School in memory of Carol Gable. Carol was a lifelong believer and supporter of Catholic Education. This scholarship is available to families who share the belief that Catholic Education is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children and our community. Those who embrace this belief are preservers of the Catholic education legacy. 

Application Process: All enrolled students in grades Kindergarten – Fifth Grade who do not receive any other scholarship aid (other than the Active Parent Scholarship) are eligible to apply for a Legacy Fund Award. A grandparent, family member or other supporter of Catholic Education can apply on a family’s behalf with the family’s permission. To apply, an application form must be completely filled out and submitted by the deadline.
