Daleo, McNeil receive Catholic Daughters of America scholarships

ORANGE — Two local high school students have been selected as recipients of an annual scholarship award from a local organization.

The Catholic Daughters of the Americas, Court Saint Cecilia, No. 1396, recently awarded $500 scholarships to two graduating seniors. One went to Laura Daleo, a graduate of LC-M High School, where she was active in band. She received honors for outstanding band student, color guard captain, and was the band sweetheart.

Always very active in her church, she was an Altar server since the 4th grade, a helper in Vacation Bible School, and president of the Saint Mary Youth Group. In the community she volunteers for the Shangri La Trash Off and the Saint Mary Soup Kitchen. She plans to attend Lamar State College in Orange and study business.

The second scholarship was awarded to Ryan McNeil, a Cum Laude graduate of Orangefield High School. He was in the National Honor Society, recognized for Honorable Mention for baseball to the Academic All-State Team, and voted by his peers as “Most School Spirited” for his class.

He, too, is very active in his church, participating in choir, assisting with Vacation Bible School, serving as an Altar server, was president of the Saint Helen Catholic Youth Ministry, and was on the Diocesan Youth Leadership Team. He plans to attend Texas State University and study biology.
