One Lawrence 'Kid' Helping Another

One Lawrence 'Kid' Helping Another

Rising senior 17-year old Angelique Alon '20 and 96-year-old Mrs. Lorraine Kowalczyk are both self-proclaimed “Lawrence kids,” and they now share a deeper connection.

Thanks to a generous donation made by Mrs. Kowalczyk to endow a scholarship fund, Angelique will have her senior year (2019-2020) tuition covered.

Thank you to The Eagle-Tribune for highlighting Angelique and Mrs. Kowalczyk:

One Lawrence 'kid' lends a hand to another

Angelique is the first-ever recipient of the Edward and Lorraine Kowalczyk Scholarship, created and named in honor of Mrs. Kowalczyk and her late husband, Edward - specifically for students who attend Central Catholic and are graduates of Lawrence Catholic Academy (formerly St. Patrick's Grammar School), which Mrs. Kowalczyk's late husband, Edward, attended.

Angelique has been an active member of Central Catholic, taking advantage of numerous opportunities and enriching the school community.

She has participated in student-athletics (swim and gymnastics) and the Theatre Guild. She also helped establish a new student group, SCOPE (Students Can Open People's Eyes), which planned Cultural Diversity Day. She aspires to become a neurosurgeon and hopes to attend Northeastern University.

Because of the Kowalczyks and the scholarship they have endowed, Angelique is even closer to realizing her dreams!

The generosity of our donors knows no bounds! Thank you Mrs. Lorraine Kowalczyk for helping student dreams come true!
