Da’Jere Wallace doesn’t take his education for granted. He is an honor student at Vincentian Academy in Pittsburgh and a recipient of the Founders Award Scholarship which makes it possible for him to attend the Academy.

In the spirit of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Vincentian Academy inspires students to achieve academic success, nurture their faith, discover and develop their talents, and live the Christian values of respect and service. The Founders Award strives to create a diverse school population while giving deserving students an opportunity for a first-class Catholic education. Award recipients include students from populations that are traditionally underserved or underrepresented.

“Having Da’Jere as a student at Vincentian Academy is as much a benefit to the school as it is to Da’Jere,” says Rita Canton, principal/head of school. “He is an honor roll student every quarter and displays a high moral character which makes him a valuable presence in our school community.”

“A Vincentian Academy education means that I am afforded the opportunity to reach my limitless potential. It also means that the possibility of achieving academic excellence has been placed into my hands. I am grateful for this excellent education because it allows me the chance to realize my goal of becoming an engineer.” reflects Da’Jere.

The Founders Award is possible because of generous support from the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and our donors. Would you join us in providing support for students like Da’Jere?
