History of Our Tournament

Nearly a decade ago, the SJS Scramble Golf Tournament and Scholarship Dinner was introduced as a major event for our school.  Each year, this event continues to thrive and grow.  Since its inception, the event has raised over a quarter-million dollars!  These funds are now exclusively dedicated towards providing financial assistance to families in need.

Mary E. Kirwan Catholic Education Scholarship

The Mary E. Kirwan Catholic Education Scholarship was established in 2014 in honor of the founder of our Scramble Golf Tournament and Scholarship Dinner, Mary E. Kirwan. A woman dedicated to Catholic education and the St. John the Baptist community, Mary has nurtured this from its infancy to the premier event it is today. A scholarship has been established that is awarded annually to a student who embodies the qualities consistent with Mary’s character—demonstrating leadership, faith, service, and the pursuit of excellence.

The fourth Mary E. Kirwan Catholic Education Scholarship was awarded this year (June 2017) to three distinguished candidates: 7th graders Chloe Bowles, Ted Brown and Analee DeGlopper.  Each is a recipient of a $1,000 scholarship for emulating the qualities consistent with Mary Kirwan's legacy and character--leadership, faith, service, and a pursuit of excellence. Because of the tournament’s success, for the first time this year, three scholarships were awarded. The candidates were nominated by the faculty, wrote an essay, and underwent an interview by the scholarship committee. These young ladies distinguished themselves with their talents and deeds to be exceptionally deserving and worthy of this award.

The application process for the 2017-18 school year are now underway.  We look forward to sharing news of the 2018 Scholarship Recipient with you in June!
