Montalbano scholarship applications open through April 16

Applications are available for the Montalbano Patriotic Award and can be picked up at the parish offices of Annunciation Catholic Church in Bogalusa and Holy Family Catholic Church in Franklinton.

All graduating high school seniors who are members of either of these parishes are eligible to apply. The application/resume must include a small picture, and a 300-word, double-spaced essay titled, “What it Means to be a Catholic American.” The purpose of this essay and application is to highlight the applicant’s patriotism and Catholicism. Letters of recommendation may also be included.

Deadline for the packet to be turned in to the respective church offices is the Friday, April 16.

This award is sponsored by the Father Hubert Bordenave Assembly Patriotic Degree in memory of Frank and Ignatius Montalbano for their dedicated service to the Catholic faith and the Knights of Columbus.

There will be two one-time awards of $250 each, one going to a member of Annunciation Parish and one to a member of Holy Family Parish.
