Mary Catherine Riccio
Mary Catherine will be attending Villanova in the fall.  She has been volunteering for many years and developed new ways to help others by initiating a summer literacy program for Children in Newark as well as establishing an annual visit to a Catholic school in Irvington to deliver Easter baskets and school supplies.  Most recently she served as a member of the Junior Board of Directors at Overlook Hospital where she helped raise over $40,000 for babies in the NICU at the hospital.  
During her senior year, Mary Catherine received the Union County Unsung Hero award, which recognizes a high school senior who models good citizenship and inspires others in the spirit of volunteerism.   
Francesca Kubati

Francesca was undecided in her college selection at time of scholarship award and intends to pursue her love of science as a pre-medicine biology major.  For four years, she was involved with the junior volunteer program at Morristown Memorial Hospital where she not only learned about the workings of a hospital environment but also learned about patient care and treatment.  


She was also a member of her high school’s Future Civic Leaders Club where she was involved in various volunteer opportunities.  Her dream is to become a doctor where she can have an impact on patients' lives and give them a second chance.  Through volunteering she knows this is possible.  

Aileen Bergin
Aileen Bergin will be attending Muhlenberg College, where she hopes to continue to pursue her passion for the arts. Community service has played a very large role in her high school experience. She has been a member of the Key Club, and she has roofed the home of a 95 year old WW2 vet during an Appalachia Outreach Service Trip. Most memorable for her is being able to entertain patients at Brighton Gardens, make a connection with the students at special education schools, and help to teach-young performers through music. Aileen also is a leader in the youth ministry community at her parish.
Katherine Kern
Katherine Kern who will be attending Washington and Lee University in the fall. Katherine has decided to become a doctor, in part because of her volunteering, at Morristown Medical Center by both helping patients face to face and in dealing with paperwork. She really was able to see the inner workings of a hospital. She has also volunteered as an assistant in the Youth Chapel where she worked in creating plans for lessons. We are happy to present this scholarship to Katherine Kern.
