Helen J Horan Scholarship

This scholarship has been made possible as a result of a bequest to Nashua Catholic Regional Junior High School by Father Denis Horan in loving memory of his sister Helen.  Father “Deny” was Nashua Catholic’s Chaplain from 1997-2006 and a staunch supporter of Catholic education.  This scholarship is awarded to a deserving graduating eighth grade student who has successfully completed two years at Nashua Catholic and is continuing on to a Catholic high school. The scholarship will be awarded in four annual installments during the student’s Catholic high school years. The total amount of the four year award will be determined at the time of graduation from NC.
