Scholarships serve as honor, help for Catholic students
Martie (Jay) Aboussie Jr.’s years at Christian Brothers College (CBC) High School were a time when he battled the illness that eventually cost him his life.
But the relationships he formed there and the education he received were so rewarding that his parents and classmates have raised funds to help future students attend the school.
Similar named scholarships across the archdiocese are helping Catholic high schools make education affordable for students in need.
Jay was a member of the National Honor Society and Senior of the Year of the Class of ’01. When he died in May 2006 at the age of 23 of a rare tumor, his parents asked that memorials to him go to the Missionaries of the Holy Family and to CBC.
