Never Give Up Scholarship
The Never Give Up Scholarship was established in 2018 to commemorate the life of Robert Price, a man whose faith and hope inspired many. Despite living with a disability, Robert rose above obstacles to become a loyal friend to the students of St. Joseph Catholic School, and a faithful member of St. Joseph Catholic Church. He was a faithful attendee of the school Mass, always encouraging our students to “never give up.” The goal of the scholarship is to allow more students and their families to experience the mission of St. Joseph Catholic School: Educating the mind, while expanding the heart. We want to continue to cultivate a community with a heart, in honor of Robert Price.
Any student in middle school during the 2020-2021 school year may apply for the scholarship. The scholarship recipient will be awarded $1,000 a year, and the scholarship recipient can apply for the scholarship throughout their middle school years. This could provide up to $3,000 for your child during their middle school years here at St. Joseph Catholic School.
