Endowment Scholarships

Maureen McCambridge Scholarship

The St. Paul of the Cross Parish Educational Endowment Fund's Maureen McCambridge Scholarship, awarded to an SPC student entering 8th grade, is centered on his or her expression and exemplification of Christian values.

"Her legacy and the admiration people have for her is a reflection of the vibrant, confident, faithful person she was. The purpose of the scholarship is to continue applauding strong, faithful, motivated students, so that they will impact others the way my mom did." ~ Maureen's daughter, Kelly McCambridge, SPC Class of 2004
