Date Established: April 15, 2021
The Mary Ellen Albarino Memorial Scholarship Fund will distribute scholarships annually to a graduating senior from John S. Burke High School and a student attending Thevenet Montessori School. The scholarship for a graduating John S. Burke High School student will be for costs associated to furthering the student’s education. The scholarship for a Thevenet Montessori School student will be for costs associated with attending Thevenet Montessori School.
The scholarship for a Burke Catholic student will be awarded to a graduating senior who demonstrates the qualities that Mary Ellen Albarino possessed – kindness, generosity, empathy, selflessness, and a strong desire to help others and care for people in need. The scholarship for a Thevenet Montessori student will be based on financial need. Mary Ellen Albarino raised three children mostly on her own while working two jobs, and she would want to help another family/parent that might be struggling.
