St. Monica fifth grader wins Brahm scholarship

St. Monica School fifth grader Pearce Newman won the 12th annual Margo Brahm Foundation Scholarship, which awards a fifth grade student at St. Monica School $1000 toward their middle school tuition.

To participate, St. Monica 5th graders were asked to write an essay about a personal goal and how they would achieve it. Pearce’s essay was about his goal of becoming a professional football player. Pearce’s imaginative and inspiring essay spoke to the Brahm family as the best example of Margo’s belief that with hard work, determination and a lot of faith, any dream is possible.

Margo Brahm taught at St. Monica Parish School for over 15 years. Brahm died in 1999 from breast cancer.
