New Scholarships Available for Heelan Students
Posted on 02/09/2020
At least four new scholarships will be available to Bishop Heelan High School students for the 2020-21 school year. They include the Henry and Linda Metz Scholarship for Single Parents, the Spirit of ‘75 Championship Scholarship, the Ray O’Neill Memorial Scholarship and James and the Theresa Verschoor Annual PRIDE Scholarship 

The new awards will boost 50 other scholarships already available to students attending Heelan. Applications, provided by the Heelan Guidance Office, are due April 15, an extended deadline due to school closure. Scholarship awards for current students are announced at Heelan’s Academic Awards Night which Heelan is unable to offer this year due to school closures.

Scholarships awards not only help with Heelan tuition, they enhance  resumes for students applying for college scholarships, according to Bob Geary, guidance director.

“Our scholarship funds provide vital tuition assistance to help students attend Bishop Heelan High School,” says Geary. “We are truly grateful for these funds established by alumni, parents, adult children and friends to honor loved ones.” 
 
The scholarships are awarded to incoming Heelan freshmen and upperclassmen who fill out formal applications and show achievement in academics, school spirit, activities, service and more. Several scholarships are awarded for spirit and involvement without the new for high grades.

Memorial scholarships funded by family members honor Margaret and Ed Lamkin, Mary Helen and Terrence McElroy, Rose and Edward O’Kane, Roger and Della McCoy, Norma Jean McGowan Col. V. Thomas Considine and Clement E. and LuVerne Duffy and Jack and Margaret Gill.

Other scholarships honoring Heelan alumni and former teachers include Brian Goetz, Michael Kuehl, Amy Graves Mace, Fred Lennon, Mauurie Noonan, Jon Olson, Dee Blatchford, Lexie LaMere, Carrie Mach, Fr. Alfred McCoy Msgr. Eugene Kevane and Barb Peterson (former Heelan teacher.)
