The Johnathan Weiger “Johnny Always Wins” Memorial Scholarship has been established by the Weiger family in memory of their son Johnny. In August of 2011, Johnny attended Montini Catholic High School for his freshmen year but, succumbed to complications from Leukemia in November of his sophomore year. In his short time as a Montini Catholic student, Johnny was a high honor student while he played on the freshman football team and even during his chemotherapy treatments. But it was his fight, determination and faith that stood out the most as to who he was. It is in that spirit that the Johnathan Weiger “Johnny Always Wins” Memorial Scholarship was created.
The Johnathan Weiger “Johnny Always Wins” Memorial Scholarship is a $1,000.00 renewable scholarship. The recipient of the scholarship will be selected by the Weiger family based on the applicant’s grade school academic record, extracurricular involvement, character and faith. The scholarship recipient will be notified by mail and the scholarship will be awarded at a school mass.
Please note that the application gets mailed directly to the Weiger family, not Montini Catholic High School. The deadline for this scholarship has passed for the Class of 2023.
To honor the memory of Mary Guertler, who had four children and two grandchildren attend and graduate from Montini Catholic High School, her son Stephen has established a memorial scholarship in her name.
Mary’s Catholic faith was the cornerstone of her life. She attended mass daily. Mary was steadfast and selfless in her desire to provide each of her four children a Catholic education. No personal sacrifice was too great for her to achieve this vision. She worked third shift as a Nursing Assistant at Elmhurst Hospital to ensure tuition was always covered. She specifically requested the PM shift so she was home for her children both before and after school. Mary loved Montini Catholic was proud of the Lasallian educational experience that her children and grandchildren received.
