On Saturday, May 14, 2016, Catherine McAuley will be hosting the tenth annual James & Maxine Pouravelis Scholarship Fund Race/Run. The fund was established in December 2006 in memory of two devoted and vibrant members of the Catherine McAuley community. Jim and Maxine lived each day with an unending and unwavering spirit of hope and optimism.  Although they embodied this hope through their generous contributions to countless communities, they had a special affection for the McAuley community that nurtured their two daughters (Claudia ’99 and Justine ’02) and provided them with a superb educational and spiritual foundation.

RFHIn life, Jim and Maxine cheered loudly, danced often, and loved immensely. They passed away within two months of each other in the summer of 2006. Even in sickness, with a powerful faith and steadfast love of family and friends, they remained sure and firm in their hope. The James and Maxine Pouravelis Memorial Scholarship will provide financial assistance to young women seeking an education at Catherine McAuley High School, an education Jim and Maxine saw as essential to the intellectual, athletic, and spiritual development of young women. Through the hope that is nurtured by a McAuley education, this scholarship will continue to keep their hope in new beginnings alive.

To date, 36 deserving students have been awarded a total of $129,000 in support of their McAuley education.
