Carolyn Smith ‘21 and Tyler Kenney ‘21 Receive Msgr. Crean Scholarship Award
Senior Communications Intern Elizabeth Kelly
Congratulations to Carolyn Smith 21’ and Tyler Kenney 21’ on being the recipients of the Msgr. Crean Scholarship Award.
This award is given to students who are looking to further their education in a Catholic setting and promote the Catholic teachings in their chosen field of study. To receive this award you must be in good academic standing and display values of the church’s teachings. The award was created in honor of the late Msgr. Crean who lost his own life while rescuing others out of a fire at the Cathedral of St. Mary in 1956.
Both our award winners are very involved at Notre Dame and have begun to plan for their college journey and beyond. Carolyn Smith '21 plays several sports at ND including lacrosse, winter track, JV and Varsity tennis. She is in the Honors Service program and has completed hundreds of hours of community service. Carolyn is continuing her catholic education at Alvernia University where she has been accepted into the Masters Occupational Therapy Program. After hearing she received the award she stated, “It is an honor to be selected for the Monsignor Crean scholarship. Monsignor Crean was a remarkable and humble person who cared more about others than himself. As a future therapist, I plan to model my life's work around these values.” She also appreciates being recognized in the long legacy of recipients who have been included in the Mercer County Federation of Holy Name Societies.
Tyler Kenney '21 plans on studying Engineering but has not yet committed to a college. He is currently the ND Math League President and a member of the National Honor Society and tutors as well. Tyler stated, "I am very happy to be recognized as a Msgr. Crean Scholarship recipient. It is really exciting to see the years of hard work in my education start to pay off, and I am very excited for what my future holds. I'm honored to accompany the students who received the scholarship before me, and I cannot wait to continue their legacy of success in my future endeavors."
We are Irish Proud of Carolyn and Tyler for this accomplishment and are excited to see what the future holds for them. Congratulations!
