The Graham and Meredith Rooke Memorial Scholarship

The Graham and Meredith Rooke Memorial Scholarship was established in 1998 following the tragic car accident that claimed the lives of two St. John the Evangelist/St. Pius X students. Graham Sparks Rooke and Meredith Osborn Rooke followed in the family tradition of their mother as dedicated students in the Rochester Catholic Schools system. Graham was in 4th grade and Meredith in 1st grade when they passed away. Despite their short lives, their impact on those who knew them was remarkable. Meredith and Graham cherished their Catholic faith, loved their school, and treasured their friends.

The Graham and Meredith Rooke Scholarship
exists specifically for families who have students in grades K-8 and demonstrate a financial need because of an unexpected change in a family's life circumstances. Student awards will be determined by RCS administration.
