St. Giles CCW Scholarship Recipient of 2021
The recipient of the 2021 St. Giles CCW Annette Henneberry Scholarship is Sarah Falkenholm. This scholarship was established in memory of Annette, a dedicated wife, mother, parishioner, CCW president and friend, who lost her battle with cancer in 2003. Every year one scholarship, worth $4000, is awarded to an eighth-grade girl who is continuing her education at a Catholic high school.
Girls from St. Giles School and the St. Giles Religious Education program participated, each of them submitting a list of their service activities, having a teacher fill out an evaluation, and writing an essay about a person in their life who embodies the spirit of a Christian, and how that has influenced them.
The girls wrote about brothers and sisters, grandparent’s and teachers – all people who positively influenced or affected their lives. While all of this year’s entries were outstanding, the scholarship review committee found one essay to be exceptional – the essay written by Sarah Falkenholm.
Congratulations Sarah, on being the 2021 recipient of the CCW Annette Henneberry Scholarship!
