Two graduating seniors have been selected by Catholic Daughters of the Americas, Court Saint Cecilia, to receive $500 scholarships for their outstanding academic records, community service, and character. 

Megan Do

One is Megan Do, salutatorian of this year’s Kelly Catholic High School class.  She is also a very talented artist, winning several major art contests. Academically, she was on the Gold Honor Roll all four years of high school, made a member of the Math Honor Club, and achieved many other recognitions. She plans to attend the University of Texas and major in neuroscience.  

Shelby Smith

The second was Shelby Smith, an honor graduate of Little Cypress Mauriceville High School. She was very busy in school activities, including being the President of the Student Body.  She will attend Texas A & M and study business and accounting. Very active in her church, she taught the 3rd-grade religious education class and served on the Diocese of Beaumont Youth Leadership Team.

The Catholic Daughters are proud to recognize these young people with a scholarship as they begin the next leg of their life journey.

Both of these scholarship recipients received their early education, through the 8th grade, at Saint Mary Catholic School.
