Mary Iorio Gilgut Memorial Scholarship Fund

Mary Gilgut (born Iorio) taught Mathematics at Our Lady of Lourdes High School for over fifteen years.  She and her husband Thomas were devout Catholics and placed a high value on Catholic education. They were happily married for over thirty years when her life was abruptly cut short, struck by a car while jogging in Poughkeepsie.  Thomas established this fund in her memory.

The fund awards two scholarships each year towards financing a Lourdes education, one to a girl and one to a boy, for $1,000 each. The selectees must have a propensity towards Mathematics, be of good moral character, and demonstrate financial need.
