Student winners of the Rooney Family Entrepreneurial Scholarships. (L-R) Alexis Miguel, Annie Thoma, Mr. Tim Ronney, Ben Hoffman and Jacob Schroeder.Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School is pleased to announce the awarding of four scholarships from the Rooney Family Entrepreneurial Scholarships to the following students: Annie Thoma, Jacob Schroeder, Ben Hoffman and Alexis Miguel.

Annie Thoma and Alexis Miguel were awarded $1000 scholarships each, and Ben Hoffman and Jacob Schroeder were awarded $500 scholarships each. The scholarship awards will be applied to tuition for the 2015-2016 school year.

The criteria for winning the scholarships were Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School middle school students writing essays answering questions about achieving future success through entrepreneurial values as well as Christian values. The students submitted their essays to a selection committee who read the essays not knowing who each student writer was.

This is the 7th year that the Rooney Family Entrepreneurial Scholarship has been offered to middle school students. Previously it was offered to 5th, 6th and 7th graders of St. Joseph-St. Elizabeth Catholic School. This was the first year it was offered to the middle school students of the stand-alone Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School.

Mr. Tim Rooney, an entrepreneur himself, said that the essay questions have changed every year. He said he was impressed by this year’s student winners who submitted essays. When the students were asked who will be the biggest influence in their success in their future life’s work, the students often said it was up to themselves to uphold entrepreneurial and Christian values as they work to achieve success in their life’s work.
