This memorial scholarship was created by the Subramanian family as a way to honor the talent, dedication, and compassion shown by the team of health care professionals who became part of their extended family as they cared for their son, Pavan, during his all too short life and with the intention that the scholarship be used for tuition. The family’s criteria for the recipient of this award is that she is an alumnae of Our Lady of Grace Middle School, and she has demonstrated both academic success and committed involvement in the Pres community.
 
 
The Dr. Zehra Attari scholarship is donated in memory of Dr. Zehra Attari by her family which includes two Presentation alumnae, and is awarded to a graduating senior with high academic merits, who will enroll at a four year institution and is pursuing the field of medicine or other allied health field.

Christina Asbury lost her battle with cancer in 2006. It was her idea to start this scholarship to help other Presentation graduates pursue their dreams.

Each year this scholarship is given to a student who truly exemplifies the motto, “Not Words, But Deeds” like Carmel Vaudagna, a dedicated alumnae parent who passed away in 1977.
 
 
This award is the school’s highest honor. It is given to a student who exemplifies the best in a Presentation graduate. She is intellectually competent, dedicated to serving others, committed to her own personal growth and a woman of faith.
