John and Helen Apostle Memorial Scholarship Award
“The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows”
– Sydney J. Harris
John and Helen Apostle were known as a hardworking couple who always reached out to our community with their time, talent and treasure.
Their wish was to assist young adults of our Parish with financial assistance to fulfill their dreams of higher education and training. The Apostle Trustees, The Apostle Scholarship Committee and Assumption Parish Council hope to honor their wish and memory by creating an opportunity to help students make their dreams of going to college, vocational/trade, or graduate school come true.
The John and Helen Apostle Memorial Scholarship Award will be awarded to young adults of the Assumption Parish who demonstrate financial need, and show compassion and commitment to humanitarian causes in their local community and beyond. The primary criterion for the award is a student’s financial need and volunteer experience.
