So many people loved her that they all wanted to remember her legacy by recognizing academic leaders at Mother Seton Regional High School with scholarships awarded in her honor and memory. For the current freshmen class (Class of 2023) these scholarships are valued at $20,000 ($5,000 per year) and are awarded to applicants who have an excellent record from elementary school and who score in the higher ranges of the entrance and/or scholarship examination. These students are expected to participate in our Seton Scholar Program throughout their four years of high school.
