Gail Guszkowski Memorial Scholarship Fund
 /  Gail Guszkowski Memorial Scholarship Fund

My sister, Gail, passed away in 1984; she was only 25 years old. Her life was filled with adversity and struggle as a result of several congenital birth defects. I was unable to do anything for her then but I always knew that when I was able to give back, I would do something to help teenagers struggling to achieve a successful adulthood. Young people like my sister Gail—who struggle in everyday life, but have a desire to make a difference in others’ lives—have been the inspiration for the Gail Guszkowski Memorial Scholarship. By helping others in her memory, we ensure that her life had meaning; we affirm that her life had a purpose. Gail lives on through the positive impact of her scholars.

I have chosen to partner with St. Thomas More High School because overcoming adversity can be daunting at any age and downright overwhelming to teenagers and I truly believe that the support and consistency of the nurturing environment at St. Thomas More at this critical time of life is key to long-term success.  If we can help them now and build the right foundation now, the positive results in life for them and everyone they touch can be truly profound and have an amazing ripple effect for years to come.

I believe very strongly in this mission, and I look forward to continuing this work with St. Thomas More.  I invite anyone who shares my passion for this endeavor to consider donating to the Gail Guszkowski Memorial Scholarship Fund to help us further our efforts.  My sincere thanks goes to those who have generously donated to deserving students who only needed to know that someone cares.

Five years ago today, Mary Louise Cox was inducted into the St. Thomas More Alumni Hall of Fame. The turnout for this event was tremendous and the speakers included her family, former co-workers, and her students. Coincidentally, it also happened to be her birthday.

We didn't know then that we'd have less than a year left with her, but her final birthday party turned out to be a wonderful celebration of her life in a room filled with several generations of the STM family.

Mary taught English and Latin at Pio Nono and Thomas More before her retirement in 2006. She remembered her thousands of students so well that she'd run into them after 25 years and be able to recall where they sat in her classroom. She loved St. Thomas More and this school and her students are better because of her influence.

Happy birthday, Mary - we miss you and we thank you.
