Alice Walls Catholic Scholarship

Hi! You may have heard Mom (Aunt Alice/Nanny) is in the hospital again. This time with four broken vertebrae. Not because of a fall or accident but most likely due to osteoporosis. You probably know Mom worked three jobs to put us all through Catholic school. She volunteered at the school, at the Church, and was still paying tuition well after I (the youngest) graduated. Just last year she started the first annual Rosary Crusade at Our Lady of Lourdes Church to pray for wisdom for our country's leaders and has been leading a rosary making group encompassing members of many Christian faiths that distributes rosaries to the sick, the needy, and those in mourning across the country. At her 87th birthday in May we announced that we were starting a scholarship in her name. The Alice Walls Catholic Families Scholarship will provide money to a financially needy child to help offset the costs to attend Melbourne Central Catholic High School for a school year. The money will not go to the family itself but to the school under the child's name. Please help us make this dream a reality! Any donation, whatever size, is helpful and puts a child in Catholic school that normally would not be able to attend. As St. Don Bosco said, "The true Christian obeys his parents, his teachers, [and] his superiors because he sees in them God Himself, Whose place they take." If only her shoes could be filled. Thank you and God Bless. Carol, Donna, Linda, Alan, Janet, Alice, and Lisa Walls
