The STVM Alumni Association is pleased to present the introduction of the Irish Crusader Award. The Irish Crusader Award has been created to recognize those living individuals who are not graduates of St. Mary, St. Vincent or St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, but who play an active and important role in the day-to-day running of our school and special events. The Alumni Association recognizes that the efforts of our non-alumni are integral to the success of our school.

The Alumni Association Scholarship Award application packet is emailed in February 2017 to eligible STVM Junior Class parents (Class of VM18). Applications are due no later than Friday, March 31, 2017. Please return completed applications to the Alumni Office at STVM, or to Mrs. Giles in the Front Office.

Recipients of the scholarship will be notified in April and the recognition presentation will occur at the Senior Farewell Mass. We also ask that recipients commit to attending the 2017 Mahar Awards, held in early October. 

For eleven consecutive years, the Alumni Association has had the privilege of awarding annual scholarships to members of the junior class. The Alumni Association Scholarship is then applied toward their senior year tuition. The scholarship is funded primarily by contributions made to the scholarship fund through the Father Thomas F. Mahar Outstanding Alumni Awards program.

  • One or both parents are a graduate of St. Mary, St. Vincent, or St. Vincent-St. Mary High Schools.
