Students may apply for the Jacqueline Lee Jordan Memorial Scholarship by completing the scholarship application form. Students should submit the application and letters of reference to Ms. Kathryn Griep at email@example.com or 832.833.8927.
The Jacqueline Lee Jordan Memorial Scholarship is offered to a qualified 8th grade student at St. Edward Catholic School who reflects the values, interests, and academic career of Jacqueline Lee Jordan and has applied for admission to St. Pius X High School for the coming academic year.
This is a one-time, $1,500 scholarship.
Jacqueline Lee Jordan was a multi-talented student who had an insatiable thirst for knowledge. Her life reflected a deep faith as seen in her involvement at her home parish of St. Edward and at St. Pius X High School. Jackie was an altar server, choir member and substitute accompanist during Sunday liturgies. As a freshman at SPX, Jackie earned straight A's in her Honors classes and was actively involved in many extracurriculars, including Choir, Band, Theatre SPX, as well as the Art, Anime, Culture and Culinary Clubs. Most of all, Jackie's love for the sciences was enhanced in the Science Club and fed her thirst to be a paleontologist.
