Congratulations to our 2013 Deppich Scholarship awardees. They received their scholarship checks at the 10:00 AM service on June 9th. Jim Cooper, a representative of the scholarship committee distributed the awards on behalf of the committee, and remembered the kindness and generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Deppich. Picture here from left to right are Kevin Huber, Alex Melso, Dana Buchan, Aaron Kellett, Liz Iannacci, and the right arm of Jena King (our apologies, Jena!). Unable to be present a the presentation was Nicole Melso, also a 2o13 recipient. The rector apprised the congregation that during the past years of his tenure alone, the scholarship fund has awarded more than $120,000 to deserving young people of Christ Church. Awards are given based on financial need, participation in Christ Church, and academic achievement.
Members of the Deppich Scholarship Committee this year were Betsy Kirkpatrick (chairperson), Jim Cooper, Bob and Kathy Webber, and Bill Graham.
