Bennett touts Catholic education, scholarships at Gala

Last year, Cameron Caldwell hurt his shoulder on the day he was to speak at Archbishop Robert J. Carlson's Gala, the major fundraiser for the Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation.

But the senior from Cardinal Ritter College Preparatory High School came to the event anyway, delaying his emergency room visit until after he had spoken eloquently about what Catholic education has meant to him, how TTEF's generous supporters and scholarships have enabled him to get quality education and open up opportunities for the future.

Archdiocesan unified scholarship application a success so far

With just a week remaining, the archdiocese's unified application process for scholarships has been a rousing success so far.

Applications are way up, and the process has been glitch free — knock on wood.

"It's been completely smooth," said Jane Mower, director of operations for the Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation, which administers the process.

Unified scholarship application eases strain on families in archdiocese

Life just got a little bit easier for parents seeking financial aid to send children to Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of St. Louis.

With an expanded roster of nine scholarship/tuition assistance programs for next school year, the application process has been streamlined and improved in a number of ways.

First and foremost, multiple applications are out, and a single, unified application is in. Think college-level FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), only at the kindergarten through high school levels.

Nobody does it better.

And it's due to a lot of help from people such as you.

In August 2014, Religion News Service carried an article titled "In some poor neighborhoods, the Catholic school is the only hope." The interview subject was Nicole Stelle Garnett, who with fellow University of Notre Dame professor Margaret F. Brinig wrote "Lost Classroom, Lost Community: Catholic Schools' Importance in Urban America."

"There's a spillover into the community," Garnett said of the schools' impact.

Pain doesn't stop student from touting education support

Cardinal Ritter High School senior Cameron Caldwell, right, attends the school through the help of the Today and Tomorrow Foundation. He talked with Rayne Clark in the hallway on his way to British literature class studying a sonnet by William Shakespeare.

Cameron Caldwell considered it a great honor to be picked as the student to address about 600 people at the Archbishop's Gala benefiting the Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation in late April.

The senior at Cardinal Ritter College Preparatory High School planned to tell the crowd how much students accomplish thanks to their generous support, which makes all of the difference to students such as himself. He was primed and ready for the festivities that evening in the Khorassan Ballroom at the Chase Park Plaza.
