Paul W. and Rose Suchovsky Memorial Scholarship
The Paul W. and Rose Suchovsky Memorial Scholarship was established in 2012 through the generosity of Mr. Edward Todd, SJHS Class of 1954, and his wishes to honor the memory of his mother and stepfather. The scholarship assists SJHS graduating seniors who wish to pursue a college degree in the field of Business Engineering or Law. Paul and Rose Suchovsky were business people and entrepreneurs who appreciated the important role business plays in providing opportunities for people and building communities. Six (6) Scholarships of $5,000 each will be awarded annually.
