The deadline is approaching for applications for the Deb (McCoy 1967) Schall Memorial Scholarships. Deadline for applications is noon Friday, April 28 in the school administrative offices.
Scholarships are for students attending St. Mary's School in grades K-12 for the 2006-07 school year. New and returning students of all faiths are encouraged to apply. The number of scholarships and the value of each scholarship will depend upon the number of applications received. St. Mary's Alumni Association board determines the scholarship recipients.
