The Jean Purcell Mastriani Endowed Scholarship
This endowed fund was established in 2021 in memory and recognition of Class of 1941 alumna, Jean Purcell Mastriani. The purpose of the Fund is to support a scholarship to a student attending Academy of the Holy Names who is academically qualified and financially challenged.
"The Academy of the Holy Names was very important to our mother/mother-in-law and she remained involved with the school even into her 90’s. She frequently said how proud she was to have attended the school. Her life-long friends were her classmates from Holy Names.
We thought about ways to honor her memory and at the same time help an organization that meant so much to her. This led us to meet with the Holy Names' staff, and we decided on an endowment scholarship gift which would help others attend Holy Names and benefit from the educational experience the school provides.”
