We are excited to introduce our community to the Centennial Scholarship Fund at the 2024 Auction. This effort is focused on increasing our endowment and safeguarding our financial aid program long into the future. It will also ensure the continuation of our Merit and Diversity Scholarship programs, which have become Hallmarks of the Nerinx Hall scholarship program.
The need to offer necessary financial assistance to our students and families is more important than ever. This school year, we are providing more than $2.5 million in aid to our students, and we know that need will continue to grow. As we move into our second century, our goal is to ensure that every deserving student and family is able to be part of this special community. The Centennial Scholarship Fund will allow us to deliver on that promise.
