DR. RAY OWENS MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP The Dr. Ray Owens Memorial Scholarship was founded to invest in the future of the Catholic youth of Carterville. The Knights of Columbus Council 10453, in consultation with Mrs. Nancy Owens, established this scholarship in the Catholic Church of the Holy Spirit after Dr. Owens’ death. The recipient of the scholarship should exhibit a commit-ment to their Catholic faith in their actions, values and education. Applicants must: 1. Be an active member of the Holy Spirit Church. 2. Be a High School senior with plan to attend college or trade school after graduation. 3. Complete application, including the essay. The scholarship will be awarded based upon the applicant’s commitment to the Catholic faith at the Holy Spirit Church and in the required forms and essay. The applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision in May. Monies will be dispersed upon graduation from high school and submission of enrollment paperwork for the higher education facility. Paperwork available on the donut table at church.    Check back at the beginning of the year. Please notify the Parish Office at 618-985-2900 or the Parish cell phone at 618-925-5099 if you are aware of someone who is a High School Senior and will be graduating.
