Memorial Gift Honors Catholic Education Advocate
As a way to honor her late father, Jim Walsh, Barbara Martin made a generous donation to OLL's Laker Scholarship Fund, which supports school families in need particularly during this time of the pandemic. The $15,000 donation was made in memory of her father, who believed strongly in Catholic education. The gift will provide tuition assistance to those experiencing financial challenges due to job loss, reduction, or health situations resulting from the virus. "This memorial gift will ensure that Mr. Walsh's belief in Catholic education will carry forward in a new generation," said Daniel P. Mullen, principal at OLL. "All of us at OLL appreciate the generosity and meaning behind this gift. Thanks to the generosity of his daughter, Mr. Walsh's legacy will now encompass making a powerful impact on OLL students and families in the months and years to come."
