2017 Catholic Leaders Scholarship awarded to Kaitlyn Lenhart

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

The 2017 Catholic Leaders Scholarship was presented to Kaitlyn Lenhart, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ned and Deb Lenhart, at an honors ceremony sponsored by the Storm Lake Dollars for Scholars on Sunday, April 30th.

Lenhart is a graduating senior at Saint Mary’s High School in Storm Lake. After graduation, she is planning to attend college with a major interest in occupational therapy. One of her goals is to work in a rehabilitation center focusing on the needs of children.

She is an honor student at St. Mary’s High School who has distinguished herself in academics, as well as service to her school and community while helping others and making her school a better place. Kaitlyn is St. Mary’s Student Body President, an altar server at St. Mary’s church and active in sports, 4-H as well as drill team.

This is the twenty third year this $500 scholarship has been presented to a graduating senior from St. Mary’s High School who has distinguished themselves through academic excellence, service to family, church and community and who has committed themselves to a life’s work of challenging adversity and helping others improve their lives. This scholarship is distinct in that it also seeks a senior who is considering a vocation consistent with their faith in Jesus Christ.

The 2017 Catholic Leaders Scholarship is presented in memory of Kristen Zoucha, daughter of Don and Carol Kelley from Early, Iowa and 1976 graduate from Saint Mary’s High School.

Tax deductible donations may be made to the Catholic Leaders Scholarship in care of Storm Lake Dollars for Scholars, 119 W 6th St., Storm Lake, Iowa, 50588.
