Montini Catholic High School in Lombard congratulated freshman, Savannah Gutierrez, for being this year's recipient of the Frederick & Ann Smith Memorial Scholarship.
The $2,500 renewable scholarship is sponsored by the Ryan Smith Foundation and is made in memory of Frederick Smith. Frederick was very involved in St. Pius X Parish activities as well as the grade school's basketball program. His wife, Ann Smith, taught first grade at St. Pius X Parish School for 25 years.
The Frederick and Ann Smith Memorial Scholarship is presented to a freshman who attended St. Pius X Parish School. "Students receiving the award have been recommended by the principal at St. Pius X as being among those who demonstrates a commitment to extracurricular involvement and a devotion to community service," said Montini Catholic President Jim Segredo. "They must also have maintained a minimum B average during their 7th and 8th grade years at St. Pius."
Savannah is from Berkeley and is the daughter of Robert and Alicia Gutierrez. She attended St. Pius X Parish School and is a member of St. Pius X Parish in Lombard.
