"Thank you so much for providing me with this scholarship; I am extremely grateful for your generosity. This scholarship is so meaningful to my family because I have many relatives that attended McAuley. This school has greatly impacted their lives and this scholarship is offered so that I can carry on their tradition of success at McAuley. My mom especially believes that McAuley has helped her become the woman she is today, so I am grateful to be continuing on her legacy."
Tradition of Excellence Recipient, Class of 2026

"I am the third generation in my family to attend Mother McAuley, and I am looking forward to continuing that tradition through my time in high school. Thank you for donating to this scholarship, I am so blessed for the opportunity. It is important for me to attend an all-girls high school where I know I will excel in a supportive environment."
