Erin Kelly Memorial Scholarship



1 out of 2 students could not attend Summerville Catholic School without tuition assistance. The Erin Kelly Memorial Scholarship is Summerville Catholic School’s exclusive tuition assistance fund. Funds are awarded annually to students in good academic standing that are unable to afford the tuition at Summerville Catholic School.

The Erin Kelly Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in November 1988 in loving memory of a 4th-grade student at Summerville Catholic School (SCS). Like most 4th graders, Erin Kelly was carefree and looking forward to life. It was a time before cell phones and social media, and tragically, also before bike helmets. On a sunny afternoon, Erin was riding her bike on her way to a friend's house, when she fell and hit her head. The Kelly’s have remained involved in Summerville Catholic School, since its beginning. So, with the help of then-principal Sr. Mary Rose, they graciously established a scholarship fund in their daughter's name for students at SCS. They are an example of how we are not just a school Where Faith and Knowledge Meet, but more importantly, that we are also a family in Christ.
