The Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso will host a Catholic Schools Prayer Breakfast to recognize Foundation scholarship recipients attending Catholic schools in El Paso. The Foundation is awarding $166,031 in scholarship aid to 76 students for the 2014-2015 school year including 11 Hunt Scholars.
In August 2013, the Foundation received a five-year, $125,000 grant from the Hunt Family Foundation for scholarship assistance. The Foundation has chosen 11 Hunt Scholars, one from each Catholic school, to receive financial assistance. In addition, 3 Bishop’s Scholars and 62 Miles Scholars will be recognized at the breakfast.
Most Rev. Mark J. Seitz, D.D., Bishop of El Paso, will speak along student scholars from Loretto Academy and St. Matthew Catholic School. Michael Miles, Immediate Past President of the Foundation Board of Directors, and Josh Hunt, President of the Hunt Family Foundation, will be present to congratulate the Miles and Hunt Scholars.
The Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso was established in 2001 to support the growing needs of our Catholic community. The Foundation manages the Catholic Legacy Fund, Progress Annual Appeal, and Grants Development Office to support the annual and long-term needs of the diocesan ministries, parishes, and schools.
