Celebrating Scholarship

Celebrating Scholarship
Donors, students and their parents enjoy a moment together at 2016’s Scholarship Brunch. Back row, from left: Henry Burke, Esq. ’64, Alyce Burke, Jack O’Malley, Ph.D. ’64, Helene O’Malley, Frank Homer, Ph.D. ’64 and Laura Fitzpatrick ’18 join, seated, from left, Bob O’Hora ’64 G’74, Samuel Soares ’18, Sandra Soares P’18, Joan Hrycow and Robert Burke ’64 G’80.

Noelle Niessen ’17 is thankful for the opportunity to study at The University of Scranton, and receiving the Every Family Scholarship helped make it possible.

“The scholarship has truly made living on campus and receiving a meal plan an option for me throughout my years at the University,” she said. “I will forever be grateful to the donors who have funded a portion of my tuition and provided me the opportunity to spend four amazing years at this outstanding University.”

Niessen says she would love to express her appreciation to the donor family who believed in her and helped her reach her goals. She, as well as more than 100 other scholarship recipients, will get the chance to do so in person at the annual Scholarship Brunch celebration.

The event, set for April 2 in the Rev. Bernard R. McIlhenny, S.J., Ballroom in the Patrick & Margaret DeNaples Center after the 11 a.m. Mass, is expected to draw approximately 300 students, alumni, family members and friends of the University. At the brunch, donors who have established scholarships at the University see, in person, how students and alumni have benefited from their generosity, and students have the opportunity to meet a community of donors who support Scranton’s mission.

“Inviting student scholarship recipients and our scholarship benefactors allows for a great opportunity for our students and donors to connect,” said Trish Krisiak, director of stewardship and donor relations. “Some are just meeting for the first time. Others have developed a relationship as a result of coming to this event through their years as a student.”

The event features student entertainment, as well as remarks by University President Kevin P. Quinn, S.J., and highlights a different donor and student speaker each year. For more information about the brunch, contact Krisiak by email at patricia. or call 570.941.7724.
