For many years, the Rev. Gerald T. Corrigan Council 3544 of the Knights of Columbus in Plainville has awarded $1,000 annual scholarships to a graduating student from Plainville High and St. Paul who are entering a Catholic college or university.
The scholarship started with a donation from the Ringrose family more that two decades ago, expanded for a number of years with a donation made in memory of Paul Bogdanski, and is now supported primarily by the Matteo family with the initiation of the Eugene Matteo Memorial Knights of Columbus Scholarship.
Congratulations to the 2022 recipients: Samantha Thompson (Plainville High School) and Kiera Dubitski (St. Paul).
The scholarships are awarded based on financial need, academic performance, and participation in extra-curricular activities.
